Black and navy are actually very chic when worn together. It used to be a nogo when there was something as fashionrules! Luckily we don’t have that anymore and we can wear whatever we feel like. Still, I hardly ever wear or wore it. Maybe because I never styled the right materials together. The right fabrics. Because it looks best in my eyes when the navy item stands out a bit more than the black one. I will explain.
* I was featured on Big Earrings. It’s a site that sells, well you guessed it, big earrings! Fabulous ones! I hope you take a look at the post Sharon wrote about me.
Can navy and black look chic together?
I have tried it. Navy cotton trousers with a black cotton sweater. Terribly boring. Even with the necessary accessories I could not make it fun. The trick is to make the navy item, in this case the skirt, stand out. And you do that by means of a shiny fabric. So that the navy gets a chic look and also stands out more than the black. The black may then fade into the background a bit.
Now I think it looks very nice together. Two completely different fabrics, one more shiny than the other. I have already shown this skirt several times, I just think it is very beautiful, but actually too cold for the winter.
How I wear navy and black
I like the top with balloon sleeves so much, I really love these kind of sleeves and they are in a lot of spring collections to be seen. I didn’t want to wear too much gold with this outfit, so I chose the nice chunky necklace. And my favorite earrings and watch. These boots are the perfect ones to wear with this outfit. The skirt has to hang over the boots. Ankle boots would look dull under this skirt. (However Jodie showed me a outfit with a pleated skirt and ankle boots that looked cool)
Sandals would look great when the weather is warm enough! It takes to long don’t you think! I want to wear sandals and get rid of my tights! I like to wear this belt on a outfit like this. Because it accentuates and brightens the chic appearance of this outfit.
Do you ever wear navy and black together?
