Orange might be the new black when it comes to Netflix but Navy is definitely the front runner when it comes to trends – it’s like the second cousin of black that never really gets enough attention, yet it’s understated and effortlessly chic, plus a great colour to integrate into your dark winter wardrobe!
Shades of midnight blue are a great way to inject that subtle hint of colour into your winter wardrobe and don’t be afraid to pair them with black; inky blues look great with sharp black pieces for a modern edge. Either go for sharp tailored pieces in for an update on the classic black suiting, or go casual and mix up your textures with soft knits and loose layers in varied shades for a trend aware look.
For this look I threw just that little hint of navy in to stop the look being too one-tone and flat – this button down collar shirt from Reiss is the perfect addition, as the classic shape and slim fit elevate the modern look and keep everything sharp. I then ran straight toward my trusty black skinny jeans and my new chelsea boots (which I literally can’t take off) to keep the look very slim and sharp.
To add that extra sartorial touch I went for a grey felt fedora, (which you’ll know is a gentlemans essential if you’ve been paying attention) and a black monochrome scarf for that little bit of warmth and print. Heading forward into winter a modern crew neck jumper would look great over the top, choose one with some texture, 1 or 2 shades darker than the shirt – then throw on an overcoat in either another shade of navy if you’re really embracing the multi-colour trend or go for one in pale grey to add a stark contrast to the look.
