Though navy blue is a classic year round color and a lovely alternative to basic black dresses, combine it with white and you’ve got yourself a nice nautical inspired look for summer. Ever timeless, navy and white dresses, especially vintage or retro ones, are a chic, polished way to step out in style when the warm weather hits. And adding red accents in the form of scarves, jewelry, shoes or bags is the classic way to complete the look nicely!
Here are some of my favorite images of navy and white dresses from the past to get you in the mood for nautical inspired summer dressing!
