DUCHESS SATIN SKATER DRESS / DRESS WITH CROSSOVER BACK / LONG SWEATSHIRT / ORLA KIELY
NAVY LONG SLEEVE ZIPPER SWEATER COAT / BEANIE / PENFIELD / BETTY JACKSON CANDLE


Is navy the new black? Well, for me, it's a resounding yes! I find that navy is softer and easier to wear than traditional black. That is why I have featured the little black navy dresses, above. These are the perfect party dresses, the colour exudes elegance and sophistication. The satin Topshop skater dress has a lovely shape, and the fabric gives it a chic look. The navy blues featured on the Zara site, have left me feeling far from blue! From oversized woollen jumpers, tartan prints and cosy duffel coats, I have a new found crush on Zara (sorry Topshop!). I adore the Zara dress with crossover back detail. It would make a great Christmas frock, fun to style and accessorize with your best-loved jewellery.
I could spend so much time browsing Sheinside. I have yet to make a purchase, although I do have my eye on the navy sweater coat, shown above. It comes in one size, and has faux leather and zip detail. It would be ideal for those cold days, when you just want to throw on something cosy.
Navy is an easy to wear colour, one that is on trend and stylish. This colour worn with pale pinks (another wishlist right there) is the dream match, the same can be said for navy and camel. Another colour match that I'm loving? Navy and black, worn by many celebrities, Victoria Beckham being one (I'm a big VB fan). Accessories are another way to add some navy to your colour palette (Autumn scarves, hats, faux leather gloves, tights).
If navy clothing doesn't excite you, there is always a Navy scented candle by Betty Jackson (a subtly sweet agapanthus scent). If you are a beauty lover, check out these two lovely bloggers, Chanelle (Chanelle Jade) and Jo (A little pop of Coral), both of whom reviewed a navy coloured beauty product!
Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoyed. Have you many navy items in your wardrobe? Or do you prefer black?

  2. I really like Navy, such a gorgeous colour and as you said super wearable. Even in make-up navy is great (especially if you have brown eyes..I should definitely experiment more with navy shades :)
