Navy is the new black. You hear that about almost every color on the wheel though, right? It is a staple color that everyone should have in their wardrobe because it can be styled so many different ways to express various personalities. The dark blue hue is not as harsh as black, but it is still a very flattering color on nearly all skin tones. In the summer, the massive nautical trend definitely brought more and more navy pieces into many closets. This is great because navy can luckily be worn year-round and tied into fall and winter fashion. One key trend for this season is actually pairing navy and black together. The two colors are typically known to clash with each other, but this year, rule breakers everywhere are making a statement with this dynamic duo.

Navy is one of the few shades you can actually rock head to toe, just like this Fashionista. The bold floral print on her blouse brightens up the look immensely. There are also dainty maroon accents within the motif that help tie the merlot bag in with the entire look. Her sheer navy tights basically replace a classic pair of dark skinny jeans. This swap adds a new, modern aesthetic to her look that otherwise would have been quite simple if she had chosen to wear denim. She accessorizes the mostly dark blue look with a black wool floppy hat and a pair of heeled black booties. This Fashionista’s style is trendy, yet timeless, and effortlessly chic.
