Winter is coming. But instead of draping yourself in funereal black, try navy. Think deep inky blues and dark indigo shades – colours that have all the slimming qualities of black but without its harshness or predictability. Indeed, there is a certain richness to navy that gives an outfit an elegant and sophisticated feel, whether it be an evening dress or a knit jumper.
The key to wearing navy? Choose pieces with texture, like the felt hat above; even better if you clash soft and hard textures like wool and leather. But if you must wear black, pair it with navy. Trust us, once you’ve tried navy, you won’t care what colour is the new black anymore.
