Just add coral

Women working in a wide variety of professions and work places should find navy a great colour to have in their wardrobe. Within the name ‘navy’ there are a variety lighter hues and darker shades, so you can find one that suits your colouring.

In my dress collection for professional women one of the staple colours I offer is a deep traditional shade of navy. It’s almost black but can be more flattering than black and it’s a colour you see me often wear! (For more information on navy)

Today I am wearing my Missy dress in navy. I have matched it with a favourite colour of mine; coral.
Navy and coral

I have some coral court shoes and a coral scarf with white spots. I think it really lifts it as an outfit.

Some lovely practical (nice chunky stylish heel) coral shoes I have found that would work in this outfit are these Charlotte Olympia pumps:

You could try a coral coloured necklace as an alternative to a scarf such as these nice beads:

I’d have a nice summery Ivory bag with this outfit such as this gorgeous Saint Laurent Cabas tote:

Expanding Bags and Feet in Nude

I decided to take a break in the park on Monday and have my lunch. But of course I couldn’t help but check my Ipad for incoming emails etc…! I had my Marc by Marc Jacobs bag with me – which I can stuff full of everything I need. The bag just seems to expand and expand!!

The dress I’m wearing is navy. I personally like the navy dress and black bag together. People used to make a fuss about this being a ‘not done’ combination.

I finished the outfit off with some nude shoes. These were a great purchase – so comfy and the straps accross the front allow me to get about quickly with no worries about the shoes falling off. I chose nude and not black to match the handbag because I thought the look would become too dark for a summer’s day. They also link in with the pearls.

Nude shoes are a great item to have in your wardrobe as they can be worn with any dress colours. You’ll have more flexibility in your outfit building with a pair of nude courts like this, in your wardrobe:

Close up pearls and Fortnums

I’m wearing the Jane dress styled with some extra large pearls.

Outside Fortnum and MasonsThe extra large pearls create a sophisticated statement feature to the outfit but you could wear any size pearls. The white/offwhite goes well with navy so you could try a beaded necklace in ivory or an ivory silk scarf for a similar effect.
