Navy has been dubbed as this seasons fall-iest color, of all the runway hues. And depending on whom you’re talking to, pause for gasp, “blue is the new black!”
Blue is classy, sexy and looks good on mostly everyone. It’s equally slimming, if not more slimming than black. Other than being a go-to for many women (i.e. little black dress), black can add a depressing hue on a women’s complexion. On the other hand, blue has an adventurous and creative spirit. Don’t forget, it’s the archetypal nautical color. It’s also exceedingly versatile, weather your stepping out in silky gown or throwing on a cardigan for an outdoorsy BBQ. Blue brings a touch of elegance to any silhouette.
For the most ideal color pairings, TopShop’s creative director, Kate Phelan suggests pairing deep blue with neutral creams and grays.
If your looking for something more unusual, don’t fret, denim of the late seventies and early sixties have been permeating the runways all season.
