Blue: Snappy Wardrobe Updates for a Night Out

Dressing for a night out means anything goes – well, not everything SHOULD go but you know what we mean, right? In Summer, which officially starts in just a few days, that seems to be truer than ever. And color has a lot to do with it. When the weather warms up, it’s time to expand our horizons beyond our go-to black. As we talked about in Clothes & Conversation this week, blue is a color staple that looks as fresh as ever. In shades from rich pastel aquas to vibrant turquoise and classic blue, there is a shade for every personality and skin tone to spruce up any look as you head out the door to enjoy your night.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. And visit us tomorrow (Thursday) for our casual picks in some of the very best shades of blue. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Alice + Olivia - Eric Satin Wide-Leg Pants

Alice + Olivia

This whole Alice + Olivia outfit is just the essence of chic. The pants are our main focus (though both pieces can be purchased through the ‘shop it’ button). It’s not often we can find a truly dressy pair of pants – these are just perfection. The deep navy satin fabric is pure elegance. Alice + Olivia started as a pants line, and the contemporary fit is amazing. It’s on the easier side, and this style – the Eric - has a higher rise that hits at the smallest part of your torso, and a wide waistband that not only looks great, but eliminates muffin top. It perfectly balances the wide leg. In satin, the style is elevated to a whole new level. It looks amazing with the sheer bow blouse featured, and will look just as sophisticated with a black blouse or even a simple white tank top. Put on your sexiest black, navy, or metallic heels and head to that cocktail party or posh dinner in style. Add a tuxedo blazer to further dress them up.

Elie Tahari - Emma Short-Sleeve Marble-Print Sheath Dress
Elie Tahari’s sheath dress uses shades of blue to accentuate a lady’s figure, while creating a beautiful color story. The marbling gets darker in the center of the dress to slim the torso and play into the waist seam and subtle box pleats in the skirt, which also helps create an hourglass shape. The modern fit just skims the body, so the silky linen fabric moves with grace. The front zipper is modern, yet subtle and gives it just the right amount of edge. Since the accenting on this dress is black, it’s easy to wear black heels with it, making it a great pick for anything from a cocktail party to a non-formal wedding. A bold pair of earrings and cuff bracelet will finish the look with style.

For a softer dress option for cocktails, brunch, or a wedding, Maggy London’s pretty aqua floral pattern is so ladylike and feminine. Besides the amazing price tag, Maggy London’s modern fit flatters figures 2-16. The fabric is what makes this dress – it’s a scuba fabric that has a lot of stretch to it. Yup, scuba fabric. It’s being used more and more, especially in dresses, because it sucks you in and creates really smooth lines. This one isn’t too thick though, so it’s great for Summer, and combined with the seaming down the torso, helps you get that perfect hourglass shape. The neckline flatters all bust sizes and can easily accommodate a statement necklace or something dainty. You can play up one of the floral colors in your shoes, but we like a pair of simple metallic strappy sandals best.

J.Crew - Linen-cotton V-neck Jumpsuit
A jumpsuit is a great alternative to a dress, and so much easier than having to put together a top and pants combination. This J.Crew jumpsuit combines the best of both worlds in designing a modern-fitting jumpsuit in a stylish navy ikat pattern that gives the feel of a printed dress with the edgier silhouette of pants. And that’s why an allover print like this works so well. The fluid linen/cotton fabric (click through the ‘shop it’ button to read more about it) has easy movement, like a great dress, and with a wide tailored waistband and back pockets that bring the best of a well-fitting pair of pants to this look. The armholes aren’t too big and the simple v-neck accommodates any necklace – or none at all. Dress it up with strappy colorful heels or keep it casual with a great pair of flat saddle colored sandals.

Diane von Furstenberg has a beautiful collection centered around blues right now, and this gorgeous ombré cardigan is part of it. The open, drapey silhouette is done in a silk knit that has a touch of cashmere for softness, yet it remains perfectly lightweight. For a night that turns cool – or one spent in an air-conditioned restaurant - this easy fitting sweater will make any simple outfit a stunner. It looks great over white or any shade of blue (think tank tops and jeans, or silky shells and trousers), but looks amazing over a summery color like yellow or coral, too.

Tunics are not only super stylish this season, they are such a comfortably chic way to quickly pull together a look for a casual night out. Pair this MICHAEL Michael Kors embroidered sheer tunic with your favorite white pants and a cami (tan, white, or black) and you’re done. A slim pair of jeans or cotton trousers balances the looser fit of the top and can be worn with flats or heels. If you’re tall, a stylish pair of flared pants creates a boho look that is so of-the-season. The contemporary fit works with the flowing shape, so it’s not overwhelming. And the lace-up neckline looks great left untied and loosely laced…no necklace required.

We don’t often think of navy blue as sexy, but this Lanston top changes that. The crossover-draped neckline leaves as much, or as little, to the imagination as you like. You can easily add a navy cami or have a snap added for just a few dollars with any local tailor, but there is enough fabric to the easy contemporary fit that it will cover you up. The draping extends down the length of the top, which we just love, because it also helps conceal any tummy bulges while still looking completely feminine and powerful. The asymmetrical finish also creates a slimming line around the hips. Any bottoms, from a pair of skinny or flared jeans to a printed pencil skirt look great. It’s also a stylish alternative to tank top or button down under a blazer to give it a more “going out” feel. Adding a layered necklace or colorful scarf make for perfect accents, too.

Military inspiration comes and goes. This season – and the next – it has certainly come. Joie’s playful interpretation is just so cool. We absolutely adore the blue take on a camouflage print in this strappy sandal. It is actually a very subtle touch, since the shoes are so light and feminine. With a pair of jeans – boyfriends rolled up, a new pair of flares, or a cropped skinny – you’ve instantly modernized your look, and created a perfect mix of sexy and tough edge. (It also comes in a traditional olive, through the ‘shop it’ button.)
