Help me choose trim please! *added finished product*

I just bought this today and i can't decide on what to use for trim. I want something girly but i also want something that will tone the color down a bit because it is pretty bright Then off to Sugar and Spice to be turned into longies



And here's the end result!! I can't wait to get them!

purple. I think it will tone it down a little. Not that I think it needs to be toned down, it's gorgeous!
