Chic Style: Navy is the New Black
|Navy is the new black this fall.|
When it comes to fashion, black is arguably the most sought after color. It’s classic, chic, and sophisticated. In the fall and winter months especially, a black ensemble is always considered a safe yet fashion forward choice. While black will never go out of style, there’s a new color stealing the spotlight this fall: navy.
Navy has always been considered a regal and timeless color, and that notion correlates into fashion. This dark blue hue made quite the statement on the fall runway, and is a great way to add color to the typically dark and serious fall outfit.
Designers such as Calvin Klein, Jil Sander, and Tory Burch showed navy-heavy looks during their fall runway shows. Many designers featured all-navy looks, while others, such as Chloe, showed off chunky structured coats in the blue shade. If you feel uneasy tackling the head-to-toe navy look, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this timeless color into your wardrobe.
Since navy is a neutral color it can be paired with virtually any other color. This also applies to wearing navy with black, even though many people believe these two cannot be worn together. Pick one color as the dominant color, and use the other color to complement it. For example, a structured navy jacket can be worn with black pants, shoes, and a handbag. This way, the navy jacket is the focal point and you avoid having the two colors competing with each other. This also applies to navy with any other color.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to incorporate navy into your look, opt for some navy nail polish. There are plenty of great options for under $10, and can be found at any drug store. You can also find inexpensive costume jewelry in a navy shade to incorporate the trend into your look. Because navy is a classic, neutral color, remember that any piece you invest in will become a wardrobe staple.
