Do you wear black and navy together? I can remember being about 12 or 13 and was buying black pants for some occasion with my mum (I love that I cant remember the occasion but can remember what the shop assistant said) and the shop assistant said "oh you can wear black pants with anything, oh except for navy of course". So for ages I never wore them together, heeding the advice of my shop assistant. Then I got the coat that I am wearing in these photos, that has a black trim and realised that black and navy wasn't a huge fashion crime after all, in fact, I quite liked them paired together. Now I love wearing the two colours together, making up for lost time I guess :P


P.s I am having a shop my wardrobe sale through instagram, the account name is @tatwardrobesale if you are interested.

  2. I think black and navy goes. Heck, I even do purple and navy. Now that, sounds like a fashion crime :D

  3. Got to love those old theories about not wearing certain colours together. There's blue and green as well as black and brown but… I think they all look good together. It's all how you wear it, just as you've shown!

    Cute outfit!

  6. "Do not wear black and navy together" is, to me, the most stupid fashion rule ever, haha. I constantly match the two and have never felt awkward about it really :) I also really like your outfit here! The maroon really goes perfect with the blue coat! :) xo

  7. I always followed the don't wear black and navy rule, until I bought a black and navy colour blocking dress and realised they look good together! Since then, never been afraid to wear it :)


    Really like the layering in this look with the scarf and striped tee :)
