Alternatives to the Little Black Dress, part two

In my previous post on alternatives to the Little Black Dress, I made a case for giving the LBD a well-deserved break every once in a while and suggested some alternative styles (think a black jumpsuit, a pair of tailored culottes, or a chic trouser suit).

The one alternative I didn’t mention was the Little Navy Dress.

Just as versatile as its black counterpart, the LND is another wardrobe staple that can be pulled out for a range of occasions and works well with most colours and accessories (including my favourite, rose gold). While it can be just as formal as an LBD, it can also be a little more fun and the perfect alternative for a warm summer day.

My go-to LND is this beautiful lace number from one of my favourites, LIFEwithBIRD. The lace detail adds a feminine touch to my usually more androgynous look, but the cut away shoulder keeps it from looking too girly. Bring on the warm weather!
