It’s official. Navy blue is the new black. A shade of blue so rich, dark, and sexy, it would make the colour black blush. Or at least make the ladies blush. You see, navy blue is more forgiving than black and carries with it a subtle hint of sophistication. It makes better stripes than any other colour, and looks both classic and modern at the same time.
This shade of blue is so versatile that is takes on a different hue with every fabric and makes you look so slick and sharp. Navy blue is black’s dapper cousin, and by the looks of it, it’s here to give black a run for its money!
Navy blue is synonymous with elegance, sophistication and style. Fashion experts believe that this colour can replace black as your wardrobe staple simply because it isn’t as stark or morbid as black, especially in the daytime. A navy blue jumper, cardigan, shirt, or blazer is a smart sartorial choice, no matter what time of the day it is. In fact, we suggest that for your next business meeting, make a power-packed fashion statement by investing in a navy blue suit and giving your tried-and-tested black formal suit a skip. We promise, it’ll give you greater fashion dividends. The perfect navy blue suit will stylishly carry you through many weddings and formal occasions, while becoming your wingman at a boys night-out.
Navy blue looks best when paired with shades of camel, tan brown, and reddish-brown. To add more navy blue to your existing wardrobe, play around with other clothing items like a sports jacket with a slight sheen, overcoats in a fine combination of leather and wool, and a double-breasted dinner suit in a classic velvet finish. Don’t forget to pick up those chic navy blue wallets, belts, and suede shoes.
So, get ready to jump on the navy blue trend wagon, boys. It’s going to be a fun ride.
