I definitely used to be one of those people who believed wearing navy and black together was one of the biggest fashion faux pas anyone could commit. Something about pairing two dark colors that didn’t match seemed like a complete no-no.
As you can see, I’ve changed my mind. I love the idea of mixing these two colors together, I think it has to do with the fact that navy and black are such classic colors. They’ll never go out of style and will always be worn, so why not wear them together? The pairing of the two colors definitely gives off a pulled together, chic look – something I’ll be doing more often this coming season.
I’ve had this skirt in my closet for years now and it happens to be one of those pieces that I’ve never stored away. I kept it hanging in my closet season after season in hopes that something would inspire me to pull it out and actually wear it. Well, it seems that the time has finally come. Longer skirts are back on the fashion scene and the ways in which they are now styled definitely appeal to my taste. For this outfit, I just wanted to keep it simple, hence the black tank top and a statement necklace.
With longer skirts that go past your knees, try and wear high heels. This way the hem of the skirt is further from the ground and since heels help to elongate your legs, you don’t end up looking short or stumpy.
I haven’t worn this ensemble out just yet (as you can tell I took these pictures in my backyard) but I’m hoping to one night for dinner or drinks with friends. If it gets a little cooler I’ll just throw on a cropped black blazer.
By the way, I love this necklace – it jingles when I walk and reminds me of Christmas… my favorite time of year!
