Fall 2017 fashion trends: if you’re tired of wearing black but want to stick to something dark and flattering, you can opt for navy blue.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ 143lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Fall 2017 Fashion Trends: Move over Black. Navy is Taking over

According to Style Caster, navy is a big trend for this year.  Apple shapes have great legs, and just because the temperatures are dropping doesn’t mean you can’t still showcase them. Keep toasty and stay classy by pairing a short dress like the one I’m wearing with opaque tights. Go black on black from the tights to the footwear to create a seamless line. I added a pop of bright violet fuchsia with my slouchy knit beret to finish off the look.


Where you can get items similar to what I’m wearing

For the most flattering look for apple shapes, opt for long sleeves or 3/4th sleeves and a length that is no longer than right above the knee.  Navy lace dress options:




This beret was custom made since I couldn’t find any that were this color. If you’re in the market for a beret, here are other options in different colors:

If you’re in the market for opaque tights, these are actually super opaque (more opaque than the ones I’m wearing). And my pumps are from Clarks but no longer available.  Here are other great pump options:
