When it comes time to find an occasion dress, cocktail dress, or a date night look, my go-to color is navy. I’m a navy girl through & through. I love that it still has that glam, evening feel, but somehow doesn’t feel as harsh as black. In fact, navy feels classy, classic, & very feminine. Another great thing about navy is that it plays well with so many of my favorite colors & can be worn all year long. Some of the best colors to pair with navy this time of year are white, green, tan, & yellow.
Keeping It Classy
This LND is the epitome of a date night look. Would you believe me if I told you it was only $20?! I know! What a steal! I love the high neck with the sheer lace combined with the very classy mini length. It’s not too short making it easy to sit in comfortably. Phew! The winning features on this dress for me though have to be the ruffle sleeves & ruffle trim on the bottom. Such classically feminine details making it a must have item in my wardrobe.
Cute & Flirty
A dress like this can easily be dressed up or down making it the perfect dress for any occasion. I wanted this date night look to be both cute & flirty. As I mentioned before, I love the color pairing of navy & green, so I wanted to add some subtle green accents to complete this look. My new palm leaf raffia block heels fit this look so well bringing a bit of green to the outfit. The raffia block heels also have a way of being both dressy & casual at the same time if that’s even possible. For a touch of glam, I wore my Kate Spade bright green earrings packed with a bit of sparkle. As I said in my previous post, I like to add my own personal flair to my outfits & a great way to do that is with a clear bag like the one I’m wearing. It’s fun to think about the colors & aesthetics of the contents of my bag to really complete my look.
