Is it just me, or is there a navy fashion explosion on the streets at the moment?
There is literally navy gorgeousness catching my attention, everywhere I look.
I’m seriously happy. Because I for one, ADORE Navy.
Dear old navy can sometimes be overlooked though – Getting passed by, because it’s a touch on the Nanna side.
Not in my wardrobe. I’ve noticed big changes on the Navy front. BIG changes.
It might be time to move over Ms. Monochrome (which is the current obsession) it appears you may have yourself some hefty competition on Bev’s rail space – Ms. Navy seems to be moving in on your turf and pushing you out BIG TIME.
Navy is the new colour kid on Bev’s block.
Now let’s relinquish in this gorgeous hue for a moment or two and list a couple of reasons why I love you so…
- Softer and gentler alternative to black on most skin types.
- Navy is friends with so many fabric types.
- Think colour / Hot pink / Orange / Yellow / Red / Green – it just works… & that’s without even mentioning pastels!
- Or plain old white or cream – match made in heaven – yes?
- How about Gold or Silver?
Now I sometimes prefer to keep my style classic, with a touch of individuality served up on the side for good measure.
The good measure on this occasion is my stripe linen scarf.
*Confession time* no style know how with this addition, I just threw it round my shoulders just because… I added a sprinkle of fashion fairy-dust and the magic happened 😉
You can never have too many stripes, Right?
Make that stripe navy and you have me… give that a bit of
sucker-in figure hugging ponte and *Bham* – Boy my heart just skips a beat!
Navy for me, oozes classic sophistication and there is no way it should it be overlooked.
Just picture white jeans, stripped tee and a navy jacket for a touch of Nautical/Hello Sailor.
Or imagine your favourite black cocktail dress or jumpsuit in dark navy for a touch of Ooo-la-la French chic – Ah-mazing I tell you!
Now before I go, can we just talk about the wide stripe on my large ass and thighs?
It can be done.
So many gals shy away from a tube skirt, especially if they are striped.
No need my lovelies.
As with everything – DON’T GIVE UP AT THE FIRST HURDLE.
Stripes can work for you, as well as against you.
Firstly, make sure you are wearing the right size – too tight and all sorts of distortion starts to happen – which in turn emphasises your lumps and bumps!
Wavy stripes are not good on anyone.
Balance the stripe off with something plain.
If you are not in love with your tummy – wear a top long enough to cover it – it’s that simple.
Just make sure the top is not too long- think dumpy short legs…
I combat this by adding a heel or a wedge – ALWAYS the icing on the cake for this pear-shaped girl.
One last thing…don’t forget your Bridget Jones knickers 😉
Remember Navy can be all types of awesome…you just have to give it a chance.
Is Navy your Black or do you avoid it at all costs? Would I find a tube skirt in your closet?
