The Little Blue Dress

Sure, everyone knows the power of the little black dress, but what about the little blue dress, or the little white dress or the little lime green dress? A somewhat basic dress in almost any solid color can prove itself to be the chameleon we know as the little black dress.

Let’s start with the little blue dress. Both a client and I coincidentally own this ocean blue, organic cotton knit dress from Coquette. (In real life, it’s the color is more saturated and it’s a little longer.) However, we wear it completely differently. Last week, I helped her create outfits for her busy schedule and incorporated this dress into a casual, weekend getaway. We styled it for day with flat sandals and silver jewelry. To dress it up a bit for dinner, all she’ll  do is change into higher wedges and larger earrings.

I’ve accessorized my “little blue dress” with:

  • Black gladiator sandals with silver studs, silver hoops, and silver bracelets.
  • Metallic sandals with a 1” heel, antique gold and royal blue drop earrings, and a stack of gold bangles.

Because the dress is cotton knit, it has a casual feel to it, but within the realm of casual, it can change its look extremely easily. So if you’re tired of black, black, and more black, look for a simply styled dress in your favorite color, and see for yourself how versatile other colors can be!
