I interrupt your Cyber Monday shopping bonanza for this very important message:
Black + Blue = Winter Style Perfection
Yes, you read that right. The color pair that you’ve long avoided has now been upgraded to “super-chic status” (that’s an entire level above “chic status,” in case you were wondering). Everywhere I turn, I come across this unexpected color combination and I’m not mad about it.
There’s something very nonchalant and easy about black + blue. Especially, when casual knits and winter layers are involved. I love the small tweak a NAVY BLUE COAT gives an all black look. Navy is just as visually dramatic, yet less harsh than traditional black outerwear. It quickly takes a look that skews goth and moody, and makes it more feminine and classic.
Isn’t it amazing what power color has?
Now, don’t even get me started on my love of navy blue when paired with leather… it’s so, so good. There is something about the contrast of textures and tones, that just makes this combination so rich and interesting. Trust me, next time you throw on a NAVY BLUE SWEATER, try it with BLACK LEATHER PANTS!
Perhaps, most of all, I adore navy velvet. It gives off such a sophisticated vibe. Try a NAVY VELVET BLAZER this season instead of the typical black! You can dress up your favorite black pants (you already know, THESE are my absolute favorites!), or top off a simple SLIP DRESS. If a jacket is not quite your speed and/or you need to ease into the velvet thing, NAVY VELVET BOOTIES and PUMPS are everywhere! A BLACK TURTLENECK SWEATER, BROKEN IN JEANS and a pair of THESE BOOTS is really all you need to nail your next holiday look!
Well, you have no better day than today to get shopping! I’ve linked to some of my favorite black + blue finds below — all of which can be purchased on major CYBER MONDAY sale!
