Like most New Yorkers, I have a lot of dark clothing in my wardrobe. It’s not often that I branch out and buy pops of color, unless I am really loving the clothing piece. Many times when I go shopping I gravitate towards either grey or black. I feel most comfortable in it and the colors are very flattering. There are some times that I do go a little bit “crazy” and stray from my black and grey and go towards navy. It’s still dark, but it does add a little bit of versatility to my closest.
I love wearing navy because it’s great for all seasons and you can wear nearly any color accessory with it to add a pop of color or tone it down. Fall is a great time to wear navy because it compliments the deep, rich, orange and red hues we see all season long.
I recently added a great navy dress to my pregnancy wardrobe that is great because of it’s versatility. Not only is it flattering with my baby bump, but it is flattering without!
