What to Wear Wednesday - Navy Blue & Orange

Good evening everyone and welcome back for another What to Wear Wednesday.
This week we're looking at a Navy Blue and Orange colour palette. This is a bold colour combination but the colours are classically complimentary and is beautiful for a fall wedding. Let's take a look at some inspiring fashions.

Wedding Dresses:
It's fall! So, that means it's time to put those summery strapless back on the racks. I know, I know, strapless is classic but trust me on this. Back away from the strapless dresses, take a deep breath and let's explore some fall appropriate dresses. Bateau, halter, scoop ... oh my!

For your bridesmaids you can go with either colour for their dresses. Navy blue is beautiful and universally flattering and for the time of year oranges are warm and rich. However, it is a good thing to keep in mind that it is easier to come by orange flowers than navy flowers. So, if you're looking for a strong contrast with dresses and bouquets, orange flowers and blue dresses will make the strongest impact.
Here's a great fall trend for bridesmaids: sheer high necked and one-shouldered dresses.

DESIGNER CRUSH ALERT! Okay, so it's no secret that I LOVE Jim Hjelm, but I have yet to find another designer who can pull off beautiful dresses in orange the way that he can. Take a look and you can clearly see why this designer excites me so much!
