Who doesn’t want to break the rules every now and again? No, I’m not talking about jaywalking across the street to reach the sale at Banana Republic. The rules that I am referring to are fashion rules that are demanding to be disregarded. Whoever said black and navy are not meant to coexist was greatly mistaken. This fashion faux pas is a thing of the past. Don’t pass up the opportunity to rebel against the fashion system by mixing black and navy.
This rebellious revelation marked its fashion fronting on the fall 2012 runway by the likes of Carolina Herrera and Marc by Marc Jacob. Not only did it inspire celebrities like Kirsten Dunst to revolt against previous fashion conventions, it provoked this Fashionista to do the same. She struck the trendy trifecta by overlooking this fashion mandate. Her floor skimming navy skirt could be paired with a variety of tops but choosing this cropped turtleneck in none other than jet black was the ideal unruly choice. She added the finishing touch to her outfit by incorporating stacked bracelets of all sizes and colors.
Step up to the challenge and choose the black and blue you would like to misconstrue. The possibilities for breaking this rule are endless. This trend is attainable with one garment or many. This scribble pattern dress from Dorothy Perkins or this peacock jacket from Topshop is an effortless option. For more daring Fashionistas/os the options are infinite. Ladies, for class you can pair navy shorts with a black blouse or a black scarf and tights with a navy dress. For internship days you can dress to impress just as easily with a navy pencil skirt and a black blazer. Gentlemen, this look is equally attainable with black trousers and a navy shirt or blazer for a variety of occasions. Ladies and gentlemen step right up and unleash your rebellious fashions, no studs or leather required.
Never before has rule breaking been so encouraged so take advantage while the opportunity presents itself, no punishment necessary.
