Let’s work together and dispel a myth or two about Navy.
Navy Myth #1 - you can’t wear it with black. A former fashion no-no times have changed and now black is sublime when teamed with navy. Black heightens the contrast of the two colours, emphasising the softness of the navy. A black shoe with a navy shift is a great place to start. Navy myth #2 – Navy is for Nanas. Yes Nanas do wear it because they are chic and they know that it is an underrated colour! Giving Navy a younger and edgier spin is all about what you pair it with. Try navy and chartreuse or navy and orange. Add some denim or leather and you’ll never think of navy the same way again.
Navy is a classic neutral that has an effortless chic when worn with white. In winter think beyond that classic combo and try red, mulberry or rust as an alternative take on a modern classic. Pair your tan boots with a navy blazer and watch the compliments roll in. Navy accessories are the perfect place to experiment with the many charms of this colour. A navy handbag, navy ankle boots or a navy knit scarf and hat add a pop of colour to grey days.
Navy pants are a stylish alternative to black pants. Add navy boots to elongate the leg or stick with your favourite black boots. Navy is so easy to wear you’ll want to get more to add to your wardrobe. Easy Sunday is the ideal day to team your new navy knits with denim. Try a denim shirt under a pullover, or denim overalls with a long line navy cardi. An outfit that is relaxed and simple, just the way you want your Sunday to be.
