How to Wear Navy


The nautical theme is so last season, babe. That’s why it can be tricky business to wear navy without looking like we didn’t get the memo. But fret not, I’ve got some tips that would help you stay classy and up-to-date. Read on to find out more about how to wear navy in style and rock it solid.


1. Wear it on its own.

Navy alone is a classic shade, just like black or beige. It is something that would never fail. Think about it, wearing an all-navy ensemble to a dinner party, beach wedding, to the movies or Sunday brunch. Chances are, you’ve already got something in mind. So yes, if you aren’t sure what to wear navy with, staying with it on its own would do just fine.


2. Wear it with neutral colours.

Some colours include black, white, nude, and brown. If you’re known for hitting the nail on the head where colour blocking is concerned, these shades can’t go wrong.


3. Wear it with denim.

Denim, where do I even begin? It can be faded denim or something that’s a darker shade of blue. Whatever the case, not everyone likes denim-on-denim. But navy-on-denim could very well be the trend you set next.


4. Go bold with prints and textures.

For something with a little more action to brighten up your day – or anyone’s for that matter – try clicking on that “multi” colour tab when filtering what you see when you’re shopping online. Wearing navy in prints, such as stripes or with a houndstooth pencil skirt can send different vibes (in these cases, casual and formal, respectively).


5. It’s all in the lips.

Believe it or not, you can wear navy with a bold red lip. Neutral shades can work too, but lips with a little more colour help to add some balance to your entire outfit and look. You might want to stay away from neon purple or green though – these shades really aren’t for everybody.


Get your groove on,
