Holiday style: 3 ways for moms to wear the little navy dress
By Aimee Heckel
Mom fashion is tricky. Tricky enough that Saturday Night Live made an entire skit about “mom jeans.”
Many moms struggle with finding clothes fashionable enough that they don’t feel old and frumpy, but age-appropriate enough to not humiliate their children.
If you’re looking for the perfect holiday dress this winter, you might find yourself straddling the juniors department and the ladies section, in confusion. Our solution: a new fashion movement at the Gap.
The LND. Instead of the Little Black Dress, this year Gap is promoting the Little Navy Dress. Navy is still dark, formal and neutral, but a little more flattering and interesting than black.
You can’t go wrong with a navy sheath dress, like this one for $59.95. Dress up this sophisticated wardrobe staple with accessories that match your style, whether that’s pearls, chunky gemstones or a colorful beaded necklace.
Here are three ways to wear this simple, flattering sheath dress this holiday season.
1. Classic conservative. Headed to church? A ladies tea? Your daughter’s school holiday concert? Slip on a soft white cardigan ($24.95). For this style, you’ve got to wear pearls, like these perfect Kate Spade single-strand pearls ($128).
The perfect classic pump, with a modern flair: these French Connection winter white pointy-toe pumps with stud accents ($130). Or if the studs feel to out-there for you, these Badgley MIschka white pumps with metallic details are a fresh spin on a classic heel (on sale for $139).
2. A little edgy. Wear your navy sheath on a date with your partner, or a ladies night out. Pair your LND with a grey wool moto jacket with an asymmetrical zipper ($128). Carry this bright red leather envelope clutch for a pop of color ($39.95). On your feet: Complement your grey jacket with these grey suede Nine West booties with buckles ($129).
3. Professionally pulled-together. Headed to a work party? Slip on this tweed Academy blazer ($98). These classic, closed-toe Nine West grey leather pumps will finish off the outfit ($79). Something about grey and navy blue just looks perfect together. Tie it all together with a colorful printed scarf with a surprising accent color, like this Kate Spade scarf with a pop of bright yellow ($128).
