One color that is in this winter is navy blue. Whether you call it “reflecting pond” or seek out some other shade, this deep, dark blue is a great color for the cold weeks of December. It has the elegance of a basic black, but with a hint of color to make it more memorable. And there are so many ways to add a bit of navy blue to your look, whether accessorizing with shoes, jewelry or even nail polish (check out OPI’s Russian Navy in a deep indigo that shimmers!) or going all out with a Navy blue trench coat and hat.
I love the look of this Emilio de la Morena velvet and jacquard mini skater dress. Couldn’t you see this standing out at a New Year’s Eve party?
The one trick with navy blue is that different shades can be tricky to match. That’s why it may be easiest to go with a single accessory in the color or a main piece, such as a dress or a coat, and then complement it with neutral colors or another color that pops, such as orange.
Then again, if you find a matching glove and hat set or a purse in the shade that matches your shoes just right, go for it! After all, as I’ve mentioned before, making matches with your attire can having a stunning effect if done with just the right style.
