For most fashion girls, a head-to-toe black outfit is a sacred look because you always look good and it’s easy to put together. With the new year quickly approaching, however, we’re challenging ourselves (and you) to make some tiny style changes, starting with: wear a little less black and a little more navy. You’re probably thinking, “Navy? That’s random,” but if you’ve been paying attention to street style photos, you know it’s a shade It girls have always worn. Navy works as a base with everything from bold prints to bright colors and even pairs well with edgier pieces like leather. In fact, the street style shots ahead prove the neutral tone is as versatile and easy to coordinate outfits with as black. We even had to squint a few times at our screen to tell the dark hues apart. Although black will always be a safe and classic color, do give it a rest and give navy a chance in 2017. You may even realize there are navy items hanging in your closet already. But if there aren’t, we have it taken care of with some shopping ahead plus some tips on how to style the color.
