TIP OF THE DAY NO. 47 – ALTERNATIVE TO BLACK – NAVY

TIP NO. 47 – ALTERNATIVE TO BLACK – NAVY

A softer version of black is Navy Blue. For those women who find black a little harsh, navy blue can be the answer. It is as respectable, and as business like as black but gentler to your complexion. During the 1940’s navy blue was worn more often than black – if you go to any vintage store and look at the dresses, and even pocket books, from that period, you will see that they are often navy blue.

No, it is not harder to coordinate, like black it can be worn with anything –  it will go with any colour, except its cousin black. Most women have never considered navy blue, but since this spring it is one of the fashion colours, it is maybe time to try it.
