When it comes to fashion, silhouettes and cuts often dominate the landscape with people paying less attention to trending colors and sticking to time honored palettes. But with the changes in lines and silhouettes someone stagnating over the past few seasons and in the absence of new items of clothing coming into the picture, fashionistas have nothing but colors to differentiate clothing from one season to another.
For the sensible shopper, this translates into digging into the back of the closet and pulling out items that they have owned forever and using them to create the most fashion forward looks for the season. Judging by its overwhelming presence on the runways and in the streets, ‘navy’ is undoubtedly the must have color this fall and the regal shade is expected to be used in every aspect of an ensemble. From leggings, jeans, trousers and skirts to evening gowns, shirts, tees, tops, cocktail dresses and even bikinis, the color navy is expected to the be the stand out star.
Even though dominating color palettes hardly ever make a difference to the predominating trends in shoes and accessories, navy is expected to the be the exception to the rule and we would see navy boots, pumps, bags, earrings, bracelets and even the occasional ring and pendant also using the color to perfection. Being a shade of blue, navy often gets a bad reputation as being hard to be paired with contrasting colors but this season, navy would be paired with bright oranges, sunny yellow, earthy browns and even greens as long as the tone is kept complementary to the deep and somber navy hue.
