Trend Alert: Navy is the New Black! How to wear it Now!

Shannon Burns

Did your mom ever tell you that "Black goes with everything"? Or maybe your fashionable aunt or the lady at the department store (when good service was actually a thing...) 

Well, here's the funny thing about that and about life in general...Nothing is ones sizes fits all. 

I actually don't wear much black at all! After discovering that my skin tone doesn't "play nice" with the cold stark contrast of black against it...I discovered other neutrals that worked better for me, like Charcoal & thank goodness, NAVY!! 

(PS: If you want to know more about what colors and neutrals best suit your skintone, head HERE to read my blog post "How to find the Best Colors for your Skintone"

The cool thing is that Black isn't the ONLY color that goes with allll the things! (And I prefer to say "all the things" instead of goes with everything because really, there just isn't any rule that can't be broken in fashion!) 

This Fall we are seeing NAVY everywhere and I am so happy because NAVY happens to compliment my fair skin quite nicely so the options of this color are everywhere right now. 

Here's How we are styling this FAVORITE, wear NOW, Neutral of the season...

Navy worn in a BASIC like this cute Puff Sleeve Top can be popped with a great colored jean and a statement necklace for an easy go-to everyday look. 

 We are obsessed with PONCHOS this season and this Blanket Style Poncho was a LIFESAVER at my conference in San Diego last week.
BONUS: If your kids are like mine and they ALWAYS forget a can share this poncho and snuggle together:) 

Another BASIC in Navy Dolman Top but popped with a printed scarf and jeans. So EASY!

This Marled Knit Cardigan is a great basic but with the added texture of the knit, you can pair with another basic and some earrings to complete the look. 

Don't worry about pairing your NAVY pieces with denim. Just make sure you have some color variance from the navy top or cardigan to the denim to help give some interest to the overall look of your outfit. 

I hope this INSPIRES you to try navy in your closet this season and HAVE FUN with your basics. Don't just ALWAYS buy black! There are other colors on the color wheel, lol! So give then a try!
