Navy and Black: Effortlessly Chic

Wearing navy and black used to be a fashion “faux pas” but today that combination is super edgy and has made its place as a truly classic look.  People tend to think navy and black don't mix. In truth, combining neutrals—navy and black; black and brown; different shades of white, cream, and tan—shows a real sense of style.

So similar and yet so different, navy and black are a surprisingly perfect match. The two colors are a wonderfully elegant pair for both day and night.  It's a classic combo and it's easy to pull off.  Since these two colors do not have a great deal of contrast between them, focus on sharp, tailored pieces, to elevate your wardrobe and make a sophisticated style statement without looking too stuffy. Think of pairing a navy blazer with a black blouse—or wearing a navy dress with a thin, black belt.  

Mixing textures like cozy navy wool, leather black heels and tailored leather pencil skirt gives dimension to an effortlessly chic look.
