I told you all (here) that of all the amazing color combinations, black and white is my all time favorite. There’s nothing more classic and no matter what, it always works. However, there’s a close runner up and that’s black and blue. Cobalt and navy blue have always been two of my favorite hues, and mixing it with black only makes me love them more. I really like the way that a bold cobalt (my leather jacket certainly qualifies) brightens up a heavy black look. Whether the two colors are mixed in one garment (à la this cozy sweater) or just paired together like so, it’s a combo that never seems to tire.
