Betsy Blue | Vintage 1980s-does-1950s navy blue Flared skirt tea dress
We seldom meet solid-coloured vintage dresses, much less navy blue ones. But whenever we do, there is seldom one we didn't like.
This one goes onto the list of vintage navy blue dresses we love. It has a really interesting neckline, a little like a faux layered look (see close-up photo).
Navy blue vintage dresses are great for dressing up with gold vintage brooches (we have a plethora of those in our accessories section).
We imagine in the 30s or 40s it would go great with a red belt and short white driving gloves too ;)
Would go great with a pair of brown ankle boots! *Red belt is not included in the listing. Stylist’s own.
