A style question...

Lacy Jumper 1951 Vintage Sweater
I'm just about finished with the sweater I've been working on, and I am at a point where I need to make a style/color decision. I'm having a hard time figuring out what I want to do, so I'd like to hear your opinions. The pattern is from 1951, and this is the photo from the original magazine.

I only had one skein of yarn for this whole project (it wasn't originally intended for this purpose), so I don't have enough to finish the collar and cuffs. So now we come to my question. I have just enough to finish the sleeves and neck with a simple crochet edge....OR, I could use a different color yarn to make a contrasting collar and cuffs. I was thinking something in the white/cream family.

So, should I leave it plain or make the contrasting pieces (and if so what color)?
