Navy is the new black
Navy Is The New Black
Alternatives to all black outfits
As a frequent wearer of all black, I am always looking for ways to change my look around. Black is perfect especially for nights out, but navy is a close cousin.
The all blue outfit is a great way to change up your go-to black outfit or LBD. The navy top is a bit darker than the skirt, which adds even more texture and breaks up the monotony.
My skirt is Helmut Lang -- the king of asymmetrical knits (here is a similar dress).
I love asymmetrical skirts because they're flattering on any figure. The wraparound front hides all the Nutella sandwiches I ate perfectly ;) ;)
The navy top is one of my favorites because -- you guessed it -- I made it!
This used to be this Phillip Lim dress, but after appearing on Gossip Girl it became so recognizable that wearing it now just reminded everyone how old it (and I) was. This top was the lining underneath the sheer Swarovski crystal top. It was very loosely attached, so I separated it from the top and cut it to tank top length. The remaining sheer part will soon have the lantern sleeves removed and cut into a scalloped hem crop top :)
Shoes and Accessories
Another trendy item that looks great with navy is the tan lace up sandal.
The stacked heel trend is something I've seen around a lot. I feel like these shoes makes my feet look huge, which sucks because they're so easy to walk in! If they looks good on you, I am so jealous!
Finally, no look is complete without the perfect bag. This Chanel is the perfect touch to make a navy outfit look chic and perfect for a night out.
I hope you start to see navy as the perfect color to change up your all black looks. Because it's dark, it still has the night out feel we come to expect from black, but the color adds more interest to your outfit and the asymmetrical details make you stand out!
