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.
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
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
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
