When to Wear Classic Navy Blue Dress
When a dress code is unclear, or you simply need a dress that will be completely appropriate no matter what the dress code, a classic navy blue cocktail dress like this is our recommended go-to. We had been saving this classic style for a post about what to wear to a hotel wedding, but this year, hotel receptions are barely happening and outdoor weddings are happening instead!
This dress is the perfect example of a tasteful and chic dress. And, because it has a thicker scuba fabric, we think this particular structured navy dress is perfect to wear to a fall wedding. Just pair it with some gold accessories, and you will be dressed in style for any wedding. You might also love these fall wedding guest dresses and more blue wedding attire and outfit ideas!

I thought this dress and these accessories would be great for Wendy because they have a retro feel, it's a flattering, tailored dress, and the neckline with the lace detail adds a little interest. I was inspired by the pairing of the blue, amethyst, and navy colors in the multi-colored earrings, so I decided to pair this with an amethyst bracelet ( because of the great neckline, I don't think it needs a necklace), a purple bag, and some wonderful blue suede shoes in a mallard blue color. Maybe this is the dress Wendy will wear to the wedding?
