Royal Navy

Sorry I've been absent, just had a lot of school work :)
Today's article is about the navy. Well,what I refer to as 'The Navy' - the ultimate style guide colour. I dont personally think its that '15 minute fame trend' because its in basically every show and season. Its a colour you can do anything with and I mean ANYTHING. Stars like Eva Mendes - who always has a classic look - are fans of navy dresses,pants and skirts. Victoria Beckham always has a sleek look, such as a navy/grey/black pencil skirt. Navy is also considered one of the colours of royalty alongside purple! Here are some tips on how to work navy incase your not sure how to pull of this trend!
- As navy is quite a bold colour, you should head for nudes and pale colours, such as skintones.
- A few well placed accessories can really build up an outfit, e.g - a bold necklace,or Christian Louboutin nude peep toe heels.
- You can dress it down with jeans and a flowy navy shirtdress, or dress it up with a navy pencil skirt (รก la Victoria Beckham) or a silk dress.
REMEMBER: dark colours are mostly flattering for any figure - so now is the best season for this colour - it's christmas, and we all know in January we'll be on diets! ;)
