Navy is the New Neutral: 6+ Easy Ways to Style Navy

February 10, 2020 2 min read 1 Comment

When you think of neutral colours, there’s a few usual suspects that usually entail black, white and every shade and tone in between. We’d like to introduce you to one more: Navy.


Our case for navy is simple - it’s an unexpected alternative, it’s visually interesting, and it pairs well witha lot. Don’t believe us? Take a look.


 

Styled with The All Day Wide Leg, The Evolve Top, and Funky Loafers

STYLE TIP

Swap navy pants in replacement of your usual black trousers for any easy twist on your usual office attire. Wide legged, high waisted pants are a universally flattering silhouette. Paired with a funky loafers and a drapey blouse.

 

Styled with The Dressy Sweatpants, A Denim Jacket, and White Tennis Shoes

STYLE TIP

The perfect fair-weather weekend outfit. Paired with a t-shirt with a small pattern (shown here as stripes) for simple visual texture. You can’t go wrong with a denim jacket over top!

 

 


Styled with The Comfy Jumpsuit, A Leather Tote, and Camel-Coloured Wool Coat

STYLE TIP
A jumpsuit is the easiest way to make a complete and stylish outfit. The navy colour is flattering, and an interesting way to switch up the “all-black” uniform we often fall into. Pro-tip: pairing similar neutral colours together (like camel + navy) is a quick and easy way to look put together without too much effort.
 

Styled with The Everyday Dress, A  Denim Jacket, Sneakers

STYLE TIP
A denim jacket is the way to go for a subtle monochrome look. Since these shades fall on the same side of the colour wheel, they’ll always go together. Pair the look with or without tights depending on the weather or season!

Styled with The All-Day Work Dress, Light Blouse, Thigh High Boots

STYLE TIP
Layering is the best way to mix up your day-to-day work looks. Paired on the left with a light blouse underneath, or on the right with high boots that disappear above the hemline. Navy is the perfect addition to the work-appropriate colour palette.

Styled with  The Dressy SweatskirtThe Dressy Sweatshirt, Simple Heels 

STYLE TIP
For a comfy alternative to the work uniform of pencil skirt + blouse. Elevated with a simple heel, or dress down with a ballet flat or loafer. The cool undertones in the grey of the Dressy Sweatshirt really compliment the navy skirt.
 

Styled with  The Chrysalis Cardi, Striped Blouse

STYLE TIP
Pair navy with any colour stripes for a subtle Parisian look. Try a loose navy trouser or a navy scarf to accent your outfit and add some extra warmth and texture.

Your model is gorgeous, and I’m pleased to see curves. Alas, I wouldn’t wear the culotte style pants myself. Do you have a forum whereby registered followers can post wardrobe suggestions for your creative department (other than on Facebook)? Thanks.
