The Checked Dress

 It's time to break the one of those long-held fashion rules like ,,Black and Navy don't together."
 If you are not really into bright colours but still want to bright up a little bit your all black look, then use navy.  
 Pairing  these two deep, neutral colours can give you a super chic and elegant look as dark colours naturally goes together. But be careful!  To avoid plain and boring look you need to mix and layer different pieces. A black dress with a navy heels? Nonono. A black leather pencil skirt with cozy wool sweather? A big YES.  Use a third colour like gold, white or camel to elevate your whole outfit is also a big YES. 

 Last week I went to the F&F Showroom to put together a festive outfit for you for the holiday. 
 To be honest, I have picked a  super sparkle, gold culotte jumpsuit at first, but then I changed my mind when I saw this plain, checked, navy maxi dress. My first impression wasn't really all that great. My first thought was:  Oh, my gosh. It's everything but not festive. Maybe the only person to pick this dress is my grandma.
 But who says that only sparkly, glittered, sequined, shiny dresses can be considered as the ultimate, festive party dresses? An elegant, deep coloured plain dress combined with dazzling accessories can be also a great party outfit.  Another pro for these kind of dresses is that you can wear them also by day.
  Accordingly, my chosen dress was this plain, checked, navy maxi dress, which I combined with black tassel jacket for a sophisticated yet edgy look. Then I used  golden accessories to uplift the outfit for a festive look.
