I am sure you may have heard this by now, “navy is the new black“. I especially love navy in summer as sometimes wearing black can feel a little heavy and after coming out of a black winter, navy just feels lighter. It is a great “basic” colour that you can style up or down. Wear a navy cigarette leg pant with a styled white blouse and finish of with a scarf or navy worn with emerlad is so fresh and summery. The newness with navy is to mix it up with different shades of blue, denim and stones and stay away this season from that very nautical look that navy tends to inspire. I often get asked but what colour shoes do I wear with navy? The answer is to go with a neutral non colour, tan, gold or white sandals as seen in these pics below.
