Royal Blue Dress Round-Up.

     If you haven't noticed from some of my recent outfit posts, I'm totally crushing on royal blue dresses right now! I first had to buy one this summer for my sorority's upcoming Fall Formal Recruitment (styled here in yesterday's post!), and then I also recently got to style this beautiful blue dress from custom dress retailer eShakti. It wasn't hard for me to find a royal blue dress for recruitment at all- this color is currently everywhere to be found, and in so many fun styles and silhouettes! I've rounded up some of my favorites above (including several from Lulu's- a great online retailer for fun trendy dresses!).

     I think that a royal blue dress is an untraditional yet perfect fall transition clothing item. A lot of us will soon be jumping full force into fall fashion- which means lots of darker colors, denim, plaids, and generally a cooler feel to our wardrobes! While fall fashion is wonderful in its own right, I know that since my favorite fashion picks tend to be bright and colorful, I can very quickly grow tired of wearing fall colors day in and day out for many months. So I could totally see myself wearing one of these royal blue dresses in the cooler months- perhaps pairing one with tights and riding boots and topping it off with a leather jacket and scarf. Or maybe styling one of the more dressier dresses with some dark pumps and accessories with a pretty coat for a nighttime fall look. So many possibilities with this color for all seasons!


     What are your thoughts about dresses in this bold shade of blue?

  22. I absolutely love the off the shoulder dress, so pretty! I love this shade of blue, especially because sometimes I can get away with pairing it for orange and wearing it on gamedays to Auburn games!
