In fashion, staying ahead of the curve is what designers, stylists and “it” girls and boys have gotten down to a T. That doesn’t necessarily mean always being on trend, though! It really is about taking elements of your basic wardrobe and changing it up a bit one piece at a time. That’s what makes dressing up such an exhilarating challenge!
Navy is one of those basic colors that work in every situation from strict formal settings, down to your laziest day. This stylish Comamerce student is a prime example of incorporating a single color into your entire outfit without being overwhelmed.
Wearing a slouchy, navy Club Monaco cardigan over top an army green Gap T-shirt, dark nudie jeans, Jack Purcell Converse shoes and a navy wool coat over top, he is able to create interest using different textures and patterns. Nude jeans have become somewhat of a staple in the young modern man’s wardrobe, and with good measure! They are made from 100% organic denim and have become a type of lifestyle. The longer you wear them, the more character is given to your denim.
With this outfit, there are variations of things you can try from replacing your cardigan with a blazer for a more professional look, to simply changing into dressier shoes for a nighttime stroll down Princess Street.
Hint: Working with only one color can be either the best decision you made all day, or the worst. Try this student’s look by making sure you are wearing different fabrics and textures. For example, his cable knit cardigan with denim and a wool-like overcoat are all navy, but in collaboration they are all still unique to the eye.
