Navy Makeover. 

We’ve all got it in our wardrobes (no not that regretful expensive fashion purchase that still has the price tag on), and it’s the closest sister to the ever faithful black garment. Navy is a wardrobe staple, but unlike black, can often be hard to obviously team with other colours.

As a navy devotee, I tend to play safe and put with other neutrals such as whites and greys, and tan is a must for summer. But what are my other options to ‘shuzz’ up my navy collection? 

ORANGE 

Ok, so not everyone has this in their wardrobe, myself included, but have a look at these pics… 


I think orange perfectly complements navy which results in a strong outfit which is still simple but just says more. I particularly love the orange shoes, just goes to show if you’re a bit wary about orange clothing, you can just go with a key accessory. Accessory-wise, a scarf or bag would also work just as well when teamed with a neutral navy garment. 


Personally speaking, I think I’ll be investing in a little orange knitted cardigan which I can put over a summer dress or team with cropped trousers and a light top. 

GREEN 
During my childhood, lime green was a thing made of nightmares, I remember chavvy shell suits and trainers in this colour, enough to put anyone off for life. But now?  I love it! Especially with navy. This is a bolder look than orange but I think even more effective. Definitely a brave departure from teaming navy with neutrals but I think a good one.  


Whilst I love the dramatic poofy skirt outfit, I think I’ll be going for a more low key look, perhaps going for a jumper to team with some navy culottes or a maxi skirt. Lime green jewellery is also a good idea to start off with if you’re still a little intimidated by the colour! 


You can also opt for a different shade of green, such as emerald. This is a more sophisticated colour and would look good as part of an occasion wear outfit. 

Pink

And finally, the most feminine of the three, pink! This is the colour that we’re all most likely to already have in our wardrobes. I adore pink with navy and think it looks elegant and girly together. Navy stripes with pink is one of my go to looks, you cannot go wrong!  


Hopefully I’ve given you some food for thought when it comes to livening up your navy pieces. What better time to add some life and colour with the arrival of summer? Here are some outfit ideas which I’ve put together to help give you some high street inspo!
