Navy, a versatile colour for your wardrobe staples, is chic, smart, sassy and there is away to wear it to suit everyone. Prioritise the cut and the texture to compliment you.
Think navy as a long term investment shade be it the little navy dress, the little navy jeans or in your accessories.
An unexpected duo of navy and black is defying fashion convention that black and navy is not to be paired together.
Designers are breaking the rules and have created beautiful pieces in interesting fabrics and shapes.
The duo works particularly well with the addition of white. The key is to have one of the three shades more than once in your outfit. Try pairing your classic black tailored trousers with a plain white shirt, a navy jacket and a black belt and shoes. Head to toe navy in luxurious silk will soften the darkest navy. Leather tends to be a much stronger fabric. Black leather is best paired with a lighter shade of navy to avoid looking too severe.
Navy flatters most complexions and can be matched with most colours. For a night out or special occasion pink, red or orange, through patterns or by adding accessories will make an elegant contrast. For work or weekend casual wear, opt for taupe, purple and pastels or contrasting shades of navy. In your accessories, navy court shoes or boots, fur scarves, statement neckpieces will instantly update your looks.
