For a different take on the delicacy of plain white, ivory is an option which offers class and elegance, without the hassle of finding pieces to compliment it. It's feminine and romantic, but best of all can be easily paired with black, gold and tan. It becomes our go-to color for any occasion. It can be dressed up for evening wear but can still manage to pull off casual daytime attire. Makes you wonder why this shade hasn't made it into your wardrobe sooner!

Megan Fox's ivory knit-dress manages a daytime minimalist look, 

While Diane Kruger achieves absolute elegance stepping onto the red carpet wearing ivory.

For the most polished and classiest of looks - for evening elegance, team a basic dress (in a lovely shade of ivory) with black and gold accessories. Keep it simple with a gold watch, small earrings, a detailed clutch and suede pumps.
