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

May 23, 2018 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 Retrograde Kimono, Evolve Top, Tapered Trousers, and Pointed Flats

STYLE TIP

Pair a navy jacket or kimono with a beige top and pants for a monochrome layered look. If you don’t have beige pants, pair with black or navy trousers for a look entirely comprised of neutrals. Pro-tip: pairing similar neutral colours together is a quick and easy way to look put together without too much effort.

Styled with a linen button-up, Dressy Sweatpants, and almond toe heels

STYLE TIP

Swap navy pants in replacement of your usual black trousers for any easy twist on your usual office attire. Pair with a simple button-up blouse, either fully tucked or half-tucked, and pointed heels for an effortless, elegant look.

Styled with the Everyday Twist Top, Dawn-to-Dusk Top, straight leg trousers, and long necklace

STYLE TIP

Pair a navy cardigan or open poncho with a drapey pastel tank top for an easy summer look. Don’t be afraid to mix textures - try layering with materials that are lighter, like linen and chiffon that are breezy and comfortable.

Styled with wide leg pant, Nomadic V-Neck, slip-on sandals and dainty bead necklace

STYLE TIP

Who started the rumour that black and navy don’t go together? Wide legged, high waisted pants are a universally flattering silhouette. Try wearing a classic navy v-neck tucked into black, wide legged pants. Pair with a beige or a light coloured shoe for contrast.

Styled with the Revolve Dress and skinny jeans

STYLE TIP

Add a navy long sleeve to denim pants or shorts (any shade will do!) for a subtle monochrome look. Since these shades fall on the same side of the colour wheel, they’ll always go together.

Styled with stripe top and Chrysalis Cardi

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.
