I am beyond excited by the sheer volume of new season navy in stores right now! There is so much, and it is so fabulous that I have emerged from hiatus to bring you a healthy dose of in-store finds + some styling tips!
A few seasons back you were flat out finding this blue hue in main stream stores. It disappeared from the runways and the racks for no good reason. To my delight, it would appear that this season navy is the new black and it’s everywhere. There is something just so French Riviera about navy! It makes me feel just a little bit posh (and we can all do with a dose of that vibe every now and then)! There was more than an abundance of choice, these are my sublime finds:
Nothing screams summer quite like a navy dress (okay well maybe a white dress, but navy is definitely kinder if you haven’t got your spray tan on yet). Uber versatile picks below:
A ‘midnight’ navy hue is a chic choice when frocking up! Some gorgeous finds available now, some of my faves here:
These picks are heavily dominated by Country Road – I am lusting over their collection this season! Witchery has also just released a very nautical collection peppered with Navy, lots of breton stripes for those South-of-France yachting vibes.
Navy is the new black when it comes to your bottom halves. Something for every occasion here:
The navy trend is in no way limited to apparel. Add a dose of the blue hue through your accessories!
I know some gals who pair navy with black and look ultra chic – I myself have never had the courage to put the two colours together! (Fully acknowledge I’m playing by old school fashion rules on that one and arguably may need to get outa the dark ages, pun intended.) In the mean time I’m mixing my navy finds with:
- something neutral (tan or nude)
- white (for an extra crisp look)
- a bright colour (yellow is my fave, red also a possibility though prefer red as an accent colour)
- metallics – especially great as shoes/bags/accessories
Cheers to a summer of navy fabulousness! A classic and chic choice to ensure you’re ready at the drop of a hat when that French Riviera invite comes through!
