Natural and Navy

Natural and Navy
During the summer months navy is a great alternative colour to black for work.
Wear your navy dress with natural low denier tights. Here I chose a selection of low denier Wolford tights but see this page for more options.
Wear a nude/natural coloured shoe that matches your leg tone to extend the length of your leg.
You can go for a matching navy bag, a nude shade or maybe even add a pop of colour with a red or pink bag!

Be BOLD at work
I love a black suit for work. It’s a classic and you really can’t go wrong with it (unless it fits badly). A well fitting black suit you can bring out season after season for work.
You can always buy new versions with interesting features such as a satin lapel or a peplum jacket.
But if you want to stick to your own suit but update it, a great way to do it is to add a bright colour in your accessories. Reference current colour trends or just pick a colour that looks amazing on you.
Bright colours would look really great right now in the summer heat.
(although as I write this it started raining….I’m sure the sun will be back!!!)

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:
