There’s one color that I’ve been into more lately- Navy Blue! It is timeless, versatile, and can give black and run for it’s money. Here are some ways to wear it.
Listen to this episode:
There are certain colors we are drawn to wear. I’ve done posts focused on colors here and here. For me, I sometimes limit myself to whatever colors are available in a store. I have been able to branch out with respect to my color palette since I have been shopping online more. However, there is one color I have recently rediscovered: Navy.
Here are some dresses similar to mine:

What does Navy Blue Symbolize?
Navy is known to convey a certain sense of authority. Similarly, wearing it can give you a boost of confidence.
Additionally, according to a piece in Lifewire Navy can communicate “intelligence, stability, unity, and conservatism”.
Timeless & Classic
Also, you can wear navy blue last year, now, or next year and it would still work! Although I will wear some trends here and there, classic pieces are still good to own. Similar to another dark tone, Black, Navy is sophisticated.

This is a color that can worn throughout the seasons. All you have to do is pair it with different colors. For example, I like it with a neutral like a camel color or nude. Likewise, adding something white makes navy pop. Finally, if you are in doubt, just adding it to a denim outfit works too.
Flattering on Different Complexions
It is nice when a color looks good on pretty much everyone. And, you don't have to worry if it is going to be a color that won't work for you.
Wardrobe Essentials in Navy Blue
Here are the items you are going to want to have in your closet:
- A Peacoat - This is a classic item you can wear year after year
- Pair of Pants - I think a pair of stretchy pants always work
- A Blazer - I like a nice knit blazer for work and weekend
- A Trench Coat - This is a nice departure from black or khaki
- A Dress - A nice substitute for the usual black dress

Puede usar azul marino el año pasado, ahora o el próximo año y aún funcionaría. Aunque usaré algunas tendencias aquí y allá, las piezas clásicas todavía son buenas para tener. Similar a otro tono oscuro, el negro, azul marino es sofisticado.
