I’ve always been a huge fan of Navy so it’s fantastic to see that it is back, and as one of the latest fashion trends. Navy is being called “the new black”. This sophisticated colour flatters most skin tones as it is more subtle than black. When the weather starts heating up, I love wearing navy because I think it looks and feels cooler than black (that might be all in my head – but it works for me)!

Video Transcript: Navy | Soubret Pink | Ma Belle Allure
Hi I’m Simone Parker from Ma Belle Allure. My passion is to take the latest trends and style those for your body shape. Navy is being called “the new black”. This sophisticated colour flatters most skin tones as it is more subtle than black. Renee is wearing a great navy dress from Soubret Pink in Brisbane that flatters the Triangle or Pear body shape. The length of the top really suits you as it finishes around the thinner part of your legs and falls softly over your curves drawing the eye away from your bottom or thighs. The ¾ sleeves are a perfect length as they finish at a similar level to your slim waist. You can add a pop of colour by accessorising with a bright necklace and a colourful textured clutch. The clutch incorporates the colours of your necklace and also complements the neutral coloured heel.
The fitted bodice on this navy dress also from Soubret Pink in Brisbane fits nicely over a larger bust and the zipper leads the eye to Gabby’s slim waist. If you have a larger bust, sometimes high necklines and a fitted bodice are not the best choice but it works for Gabby because she has distance between her bustline and waist. You can wear bright statement earrings which coordinate with the navy and gold of the dress and diverts the eye away from your bust area. A nude heel in a similar colour to your skin elongates your legs making you appear taller and slimmer and is perfect for day wear.
I hope I have given you some tips today on how to style a navy dress for your body shape and you are inspired to create your own beautiful look. For more inspiration go to our website, subscribe to our YouTube channel and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
