Tips for styling a Navy dress + a link up

Happy Thursday! This week I present to you my favorite little navy dress. I stumbled upon this one in the sale section of Francesca’s and had to get it! I’m so very glad I did. I’ve gotten just as many wears out of this dress in the winter as I did in the summer.

Today I’m also co-hosting a the Thursday Moda link-up with Elegance and Mommyhood. Ada started this link-up several weeks-a month ago and has had quite a good turnout. Her blog title is quite catchy too. While I’m not a mom, I’m sure that at times moms can feel as though it’s harder to feel fashionable since so much of your time is spent caring for other humans. Her blog is a great reminder that you can rock it whenever! I love that.

Anyway, back to my tips for wearing navy. Navy is for sure a tricky color to pull off. It’s often close too close to black. I often find myself worrying if black is even a good option when I’m trying to style that navy dress.

My days often start off the same. I rise from my bed, walk over to the closet and decide which dress I’m going to wear for the day. The dress always comes first. Then, I accessorize around my dress.

Here are a few tips for styling that navy dress:

Pops of color

These red shoes are one of my favorite things I bought. When I’m looking to add a bit of pizazz to a look, I often turn to these shoes. Royal red looks great with navy. So does green, mustard yellow and coral pink, to name a few.

Big statement jewelry also with said pops of color

I just love bold red accessories. I cannot tell you how much wear I get out of them. I’m convinced that every woman should own a few things that are bright red.

This necklace is simple yet bold. It was an easy Charming Charlie find too.

  1. Hi Nina.

    I am so glad you were my co-host this Wednesday and everything worked out great. You wore such a pretty dress too and had me fooled because I thought it was real warm there lol. And those Mary Jane shoes are adorable, too.

    When you get a chance, you should stop by my post today because you would totally love it – I promise. Ohh and I will e-mail you about something.

    Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
