Navy and black is one of those most underrated color combos. I think people assume that because the two colors are so similar in tone, they shouldn’t be worn together. I’m not one of those people. It happens to be one of my favorite pairings. Each color is a classic on its own and together, look even chicer. As someone who wears a lot of head-to-toe black, adding in some navy blue is also an easy way to freshen up my look. For example, this leather mini would look fab paired with this blue knit from J.Crew. I also love the way that my navy blazer lightens up my go-to uniform of a black t-shirt and black jeans. In the case here, Victoria Beckham did the mixing for me and added black cuffs (I love all of the interesting sleeve details she’s doing lately. See here, here, and here.) to the navy shirt. The same trick is seen in this adorable top and this velvet-tied dress I’ve been eyeing. I found some other great things that feature the color combo, too, including this on-sale dress, this super-chic (!) jacket, and this fringe sweater.
