In the Navy..
It's not YMCA, but still a classic!
Navy is one of those shades I always recommend to clients as it's softer than black and can be dressed up or down easily. I think the connotations of it being something your nan might have worn or a shade that's a tad 'boring' are not the case. Navy is really versatile and suits everyone, although I think it looks particularly good on blondes and red heads (boo, .
So I've done the searching and here are some of my favourite navy picks out there at the moment. I usually try and put these in some semblance of order, but not today - so it's a real mix of dresses, trousers, jumpers and the rest!
A client recently tried this ripple stich knit dress on from Warehouse, £46 and I assure you looked considerably hotter than the model in the pic (not that the model isn't lovely!). Really flattering, a great knit dress.
I love a jumper dress and this midi length ripple stitch version from Asos, £32, is simple and comfortable. However is it me, what on earth is the sock / shoe combo about? Not my cup of tea at all - sorry Asos!
These pressed flannel crop wide leg trousers from Whistles, £140 look fantastic with heels.
As always, a gorgeous jumper from Hush £69, this two-tone version is paired with their Ashley trousers.
I'm a little obsessed with AQ/AQ and pretty much everything they have! First up are their Misha wide leg trousers, £110.
More heavenly wide leg trousers, the Serena high waist from AQ/AQ, £125 are stunning.
Oh but this Acacia sleeveless midi dress £115 is divine. I love the neckline and midi length and would ensure I wore huge earrings, very high heels and lots of red lipstick! Love.
A very pretty velvet crossover dress from Zara, £29.99 (because it wouldn't be a blog post without some mention of something from Zara!).
More velvet, this time over the knee velvet high heel boots from Zara, 59.99.
And Other Stories just get it right, every time. Their new Captain coat, £155 is one example of how good something can look!
Pleat perfection! A midi skirt from And Other Stories, £59.
A bit of artistic licence now with the navy, but this colour block jumper from And Other Stories, £49 is gorgeous. You can't beat red and navy!
This DVF Viera lace dress via Matchesfashion is now in their sale and quite frankly a bloody bargain! Now £125 (was £418).
You know my feelings about big earrings (I'm all for them!) and these navy tassel drop earrings from River Island are just £8.
Am liking these navy flatform trainers from TopShop, now just £15 (were £26).
So that's a quick run through of some navy favourites and you've probably still got The Village Peoples song in your head too - you're welcome!
As always feel free to leave comments or let me know if you're searching for something in particular and I'll do my best to include that in the next post.
