There comes a time in all of our lives when a collection launches and we enter a new stage. Our fashion path becomes clearer and that much more fabulous, and we are ready to follow it without looking back. That’s exactly what we’ll be doing, especially with this versatile dress greeting us at the first step!
The Something Navy Side Slit Mididress is the easiest way to elevate our style we could imagine. Put it on and . . . done! Suddenly we’re fashionistas. Sure, we can add shoes, but at that point, we can blindly pick a pair out of our closet and be confident we’ll end up with “OOTD perfection.” This collection just dropped exclusively at Nordstrom, so be the first to wear it before it sells out!
This mididress is lightweight and breezy, swaying with airy charm as we walk or twirl. Yes, this dress has us twirling! Perhaps it’s the side slits inspiring us. The button side seam lets us customize our look by opening up the skirt or closing it up just around the knee to let our legs peek through. The hem hits mid-calf, which is the perfect length to show that, sure, we’re classy, but we always leave a little room for fun.
If we want to keep the side seams unbuttoned, we can achieve a flawless boho look by slipping on a pair of skinny jeans underneath and topping it all off with a wide-brim straw hat resting on our head. Alternatively, we can button them all the way and go with bare legs or tights instead. It all just depends on the season! This dress is great for year-round wear; the final look just depends on how we accessorize it!
This Something Navy dress has a relaxed fit, but comes with an optional sash to tie around our waist if we want to add a cinched shape. This sash was made to match the dress’ prominent topstitching, which is especially distinct on the black version. The dress’ fabric is black, but the thin stitching is white and looks almost completely smooth until we zoom in to see the immaculate dot-like detail.
The stitching lines the dress’ V-neck, continuing down from the bottom of the V to the waist, where it perpendicularly intersects with horizontal stitching, which we can choose to layer with the sash if we prefer. The stitching also continues down the sides of the skirt, lining the hem as well. On the back, the stitching pattern is repeated, but since there is no V, the stitching instead lines a round neckline and starts up again to form horizontal lines across the shoulder blades.
The stitching also makes an appearance on the wide, three-button cuffs at the ends of the sleeves. Because these cuffs are so wide, we can push them up ever-so-slightly to create a bishop sleeve effect! This beautifully complements the puffed shoulders, which lightly float atop our arms for a royal effect. Because this dress is understated in its exquisite allure, these shape-focused details really shine.
If we’re looking for the seams to be more subtle in our overall look, Ivory Dove might be the color for us. The stitching is the same color as the dress’ angelic fabric, and we basically feel like heavenly beings when we put this shade on. We would wear this color anywhere, adding colorful shoes or trading out the sash for a contrasting belt, for example. We could also put on white, silver or gold boots or heels for an extremely elegant outfit for an engagement shoot, bridal shower or even a low-key wedding!
Something Navy’s namesake label just recently launched and we are so impressed, but certainly not shocked. We wouldn’t expect anything less from Arielle Charnas, the fashion-blogger-turned-designer who started her blog 10 years ago in 2009. What better way to celebrate a 10-year anniversary than with a collection of effortless silhouettes we feel like we’ve been waiting our entire lives for?
