Black & Navy

So, is it really true that you can't wear black and navy together? Well of course it isn't true! It is merely an antiquated, ye olde worlde fashion "rule" that is complete nonsense.

Black and navy, so similar yet so different, are two dark neutral colours that compliment rather than compete with one another. Neutrals almost always work together, particularly if you combine different textures as I have done here with the leather skirt and the silk shirt.

The skirt and shirt are two more glorious pieces from Ireland's Emma Manley. The bright navy of the silk shirt works perfectly with the black patent leather skirt (it's important to point out that when mixing black and navy, there should be an obvious difference between the two colours. Don't choose a very dark navy or you might look like you've paired them by mistake or dressed yourself in the dark!).

To compliment the gold leather collar of the gorgeous shirt I added a third colour to my outfit with funky leopard print shoes by Alexander Wang and a gorgeous, oversized clutch bag by my favourite accessories/handbag Designer, the wonderfully talented Nadia Minkoff. Tan/nude, call it what you will, the colour offsets an otherwise dark vibe and it all adds up to one very chic, elegant look.
