Mixing it up for a change in a midi dress from one of my favorites, Shoshanna. When I put this outfit on Craig looked at me and said “black and blue together, really?” I thought it was kind of funny that he thought of that as a faux pas. I was under the impression that everyone knew you can wear navy and black together. I don’t wear a ton of black but it’s such an easy color to have in your wardrobe because it can go with so many things. The subtle contrast of navy and black together is sophisticated and chic, and both colors are for the most part universally flattering. What do you think about navy and black together? Chic or no?
