I’ll Have What She’s Having: A Carven indigo ruched stretch-wool dress played down to look perfect for day.
A navy dress– particularly in the fall or winter– can get a bit tricky when it comes to deciding what color hose to wear with it.
Summer months are a no-brainer with bare tan legs and tobacco, nude, or bold colored shoes.
But, what to do when it gets cool out?
Navy hose and a navy dress can get a bit old school flight attendentesque or schoolmarmish, and nude hose make the dress too dressy for a business day.
Katie Holmes got it right by wearing black tights with the navy dress from Carven (FYI: A brand that we love here at FOS) and platform black patent Mary Jane’s to create a bit of gloss for interest.
Stylist Advice: The mix of black worn with navy is both modern and chic, and creates a more tonal head-to-toe feel for the outfit that instantly gives a slinky jersey dress like this enough visual weight to wear to a business meeting or daytime event.
Katie’s pretty and soft natural makeup and slightly undone wavy hair continue to soften the edge of a dress than can take a totally va-va-voom feel with a quick with of heels and bare legs. Day or night, the dress is fab.
