Have you ever said “I have nothing to wear” or “I am tired of wearing black”? Do not worry, you are not alone. The color black is one of the most common colors used on a daily basis around the world. It is an easy color to use and one of the most universal tones. Black can be mixed with many, if not all, other colors and generally can be worn by most people. Let me disrupt your thinking in regards to the color black; it is not the only color that is bold and commanding. There is another bold color that works well, too: the color blue. Navy blue to be exact. This color shows strength, integrity, authority, and structure.
Color is used as a personal form of expression. It is used to convey a message. In most arenas, it is used to evoke a feeling and create an aura of change or movement. What hues immediately come to mind when you think of beautiful colors? Is blue one of them, or more specifically, navy blue? Navy blue has been viewed to be a masculine color. Well, that may be true, but ladies, you can put your own twist on it. Make blue beautiful for you. Follow these simple tips to revive your wardrobe, make a statement, and make blue the new black.
4 Tips on how to wear Navy Blue
- Wear It In A Fun Suit
Pantsuits are the one-stop shop when trying to find something to wear. They can be functional and stylish. The key is to find the pantsuit that works best for your body type. To make this navy piece fun, try wearing a subtle pattern (ie. pinstripe, floral, or polka dot).
- Mix It With A Vibrant Color
Navy blue is a color that ranges from dark to extremely dark, making it a good rival for the color black. Mixing navy with a vibrant color potentially highlights undertones. The dark hue can be a great backdrop to highlight a vibrant color, or it can be used as the main piece with a touch of small, colorful accents. The complementary color for blue is orange, so starting in this family of colors will help you in making secondary decisions.
Do not limit yourself to just this color; personalize it by trying others.
- Keep It Simple
Simple, classic, and clean styles are always great go-to’s. What would be considered simple? Pairing the base blue with a neutral such as white, ivory, silver, even gold. Adding simple jewelry is also a good way to add a bit of subtle flair.
- Go Over The Top
Go bold and mix a collage of your favorites together. Use pieces such as hats, headbands, scarfs, colorful shoes, printed shoes, or bold coverups (ie.sweater or jacket).
These tips demonstrate how exchanging black for blue is a viable choice that you should not overlook. Step out of the mundane and try something new. It can be exciting. You are limitless. Blue is boundless, and so are your options.
