It's that funny time of year when shopping motivation is low, and, frankly, so is the inclination to get dressed up. The mid-winter doldrums hit even the most dedicated fashionista. The weather can be brutal on the East Coast, so for many of us it's basic black, loads of denim and, well, not much else. I was going through some old photos and found this outfit from Nic + Zoe that I forgot to share with everyone. The brand was new to me in 2018 (click here for the fun sequin skirt I featured last year) and I think we can all agree easy pleats make for easy outfits.
I know we all love to keep a little black dress in the closet, but a little navy dress can be an equally valuable resource. It can go to work events and stand out on a date night. Navy looks great on almost every skin color.
Bonus about this dress: ironing is completely optional.
Trying on Nic + Zoe for style
If you need to get out of a rut, this navy dress will work wonders. It's easy to style (add a belt, or don't) and super for travel. I slipped on my favorite suede booties to pull this all together. I'd also love it with nude pumps or strappy sandals once the weather warms up.
