Black and Blue


This dress is actually black and white, but I feel like it could also pass as white and navy. If I were to pair it with something navy, it would trick the eye into thinking it really was navy instead of black. I like to use this little trick to my advantage. It also makes the dress that little bit more versatile. Today, I chose to stick with a black shawl and went for pops of colour with cobalt accessories. I sort of used the same principle as the navy, but opted for a brighter shade of blue, to really make it stand out. I would not have chosen to mix black and navy elements with this dress because I feel it would all look mismatched. Navy and black are too close to one another to be cohesive when both paired with this dress. By choosing cobalt, I made sure that the blue was very distinguishable from the black. I am not, under any circumstances, saying that black and navy never go together. It all depends on the outfit!
