NAVY & WHITE – PERFECT COMBINATION

There is so much new season goodness in the stores at the moment and one of my favourite colour combinations is popping up everywhere – NAVY and WHITE.

In my wardrobe navy seems to be taking over from black as my staple colour – shock horror! White has always been a favourite as I love the freshness of it so nothing new there.

I think the navy and white trend is one that anyone can embrace, it is such a classic and fresh combination. Navy has the same comfort effect for us women as wearing black but I think that it is better suited to most skin tones – not so likely to make you look washed out. White for the warmer months always evokes the feeling of spring and summer.

I love white jeans for the summer but realise that not all women are comfortable wearing them. So if you would rather not go down the white jeans path try skirts or relaxed pants in white that won’t cling but will still look fabulous and fresh.

My other favourite white item of clothing and one that I think should be a wardrobe staple is the white blazer. This is such a versatile item and can be worn dressed down with distressed jeans and shorts or dressed up with a fitted skirt or over your favourite summer dress.

See below for a couple of  my Instagram Everyday Style outfit inspirations for navy and white.
