In the wedding world, navy functions as a neutral color. Like black, it helps ground the colors around it and keeps your color scheme from looking too washed out. If you’re someone who prefers light and airy colors, or even metallic tones, having a darker hue like navy in the mix is important.
Navy blue bridesmaid dresses are a great color, especially if the fellas are wearing tan or blue suits. It’s a classic color that you won’t regret incorporating in your wedding, and with so many navy gowns and dresses available, it won’t be hard to find a dress that your bridesmaid are happy with.
From affordable dresses under $20 to high-end designer gowns, we’ve rounded up 10 of favorite navy blue bridesmaid dresses for you to shop below.
1. Badgley Mischka Sequined Sleeveless Evening Dress
This sparkly and sequined number is a dress that will wow. While navy can be worn in any season, this formal dress is more appropriate for a fall or winter wedding, since the sequins give the dress a heavier look and it’s not very light and airy. The dress is extremely figure flattering, and is tailored to the body.
