Navy Blue and Bronze Dress for a Wedding
As much as I hate to admit it, since fashion functions a few months prior to the pending season, it’s time for me to start looking at transitional colors and fallish tones. (Remind me that I should start doing summer dresses in January!) I’m trying to find fabulous dresses for wedding guests that can transcend seasons, like this midnight blue bow halter dress from Halston Heritage.

I absolutely love the big flouncy bow, the rich fabric, and the fact that it has pockets! To get out of the usual navy with silver and navy and gold pairings I’ve done; I’ve put bronze accessories with this, but it’s navy — so it could have purple, pink, green – nearly any accessory color paired with it!
Bridesmaids could definitely wear this for a sweet navy bridesmaid dress, but here I’ve styled it for a fall wedding guest, with a rich contrast in bronze satin and metallic. One doesn’t necessarily think of brown or bronze as a pairing with navy, but it looks rich to me. I’d wear this combination for a city wedding, or for a semi formal fall wedding.
Let me know in the comments. What do you think of this unusual pairing of bronze and navy?
