Navy an elegant alternative to black !

Evening wear, usually black, well for me  it is anyway !!

Well navy is a is both an elegant and softer alternative to consider.

I have come across these two beautiful pieces from Coast

The YULIYA Skirt


 125 pounds here

A prefect midi length skirt that is prime for this season. If you don’t know the midi length is a season must have !

Well I think this beauty wont disappoint.

The fullness of the skirt, the shimmer of the fabric is complimented by a classic well cut design. 

This skirt is 35.5 inches/ 90cm in length form waist to hem.

Ah, I just think old world glamour.

So the beauty of this garment is you can go a number of ways with styling.

What I would say is keep the top fitted and I agree with the recommendation on the site, keep the top tucked in, for evening anyway .

So dependent on the event, venue, company etc there are a number of  options to consider !


KAYA LACE TEE 45 pounds


so this will teamed with the skirt, will look like a dress or team with a pair of dress trousers for a second go to evening look


keep your accessories simple

maybe a statement clutch !


An alternative to consider and a look I personally adore, team with a crisp white shirt. This allows you to bring in some glamour by introducing some vintage jewellery.

roll up the sleeve and open up the neck, invest invest invest, get a good stretch sheen cotton,

 both versatile and  cross seasonal .

Jewellery is personal thing, here are some vintage pieces to consider, scale it back, one piece only !

and finish with a bit of bling 🙂


These are just a few ides on how to mix and match.

the skirt is the feature, as I said there are no rules any more , so go traditional or mix things up

The other item, no I haven’t forgotton !
