Default Which dress best matches my dog?

So, I bought a dress for conformation with Logan...and I'm having second thoughts. I think the lines may detract from Logan. Halp?

Option 1: The one I have right now

Option 2: Same as I have now, but in pink. And orange.

Option 3: Pink.

Option 4: Navy/Blue/Lime. I feel like the navy is too close to Logan's black and won't make him "pop."

Option 5: Something else entirely

And yes, those pictures are GORGEOUS. I know.

I would go with 3. I don't like stripes/patterns on dresses personally, and agree that it kind of attracts focus away from the dog.

Plus I think pink is more flattering on light skin tones, like yours.

I actually think the one you have now is fine, but I like the pink one the best.

I like the one you have now, but you may be right about the stripes distracting. Depends how long the dress is I guess. Maybe something in a solid color?

Also mad photoshop skillz yo!

The stripes detract but Btwn blue and pink one deepens the black and one highlights the tan, is one color more important than the other?

They are all nearly floor length, so they will definitely work as a "backdrop" pretty much as pictured.

The other thing is the pink/purple and blue/navy ones have a light belt sort of thing, so it may be easier to attach a bait pouch. NONE of them have pockets, bleh >.<

I know, aren't you jealous?

I would go with opt 3 or 4. I tend to stay away from the loud stripes or poka dot outfits. And stay with the solid(ish) patterns. Pretty much you could go with any color as long as its not black or navy blue.
If opt 3 and 4 have a belt that you could attach a bait pouch to, I would definatly go with one of those.

I think he blends into the pink. You want him to pop, think the plain blue is best for that.
