Navy is the new black. Seriously. There are so many benefits to wearing dark navy blue. I’ve come to trust that navy will flatter me more than black. You can wear dark wash jeans, navy cardigans, navy dresses, navy blazers… you name it navy is in.
In terms of color meanings, blue is associated with loyalty, trust and stability. That’s why it is recommended to wear blue to an interview. Black can be slightly more commanding because it is associated with power and authority. As a result, navy blue can make you seem more approachable and friendly.
There are three simple reasons why navy is the new black.
Navy is softer than black
Black can be harsh against the skin, washing it out and making it look more lifeless. Navy blue can be more forgiving on all skin tones.
Navy can complement black
Navy goes with black perfectly. Navy also goes with pretty blends well with other colors. It is definitely one of top base neutral colors to own.
Navy is just as versatile as black
Navy can become your new “black.” Wearing the “little navy dress” is just as slimming and flattering as the “little black dress.” As a neutral color, navy blue goes with pretty much everything.
And there you have it! :)
