Our unexpected seasonal favourite (...or, why you should be wearing navy blue)

[caption id="attachment_2527" align="alignleft" width="343"]Image via Pinterest Image via Pinterest[/caption] Navy blue is the French woman's secret style weapon and one trend that's currently happening in fashion... And one of the things we love most about navy is how crisp and confident it is. You can wear it alone or with numerous other colours and it always stands tall and remains an elegant backdrop or centerpiece alike. While grey, black and white are totally on-trend, navy is a hue that works beautifully on its own and with other colours. In general, most of us wear less navy than we do black. Yet it's chic, minimal and timeless, and its hue frequently tends to flatter people more so than black. In fact, Jane Shepherdson, CEO of Whistles, said in an interview with The Guardian that:
When I see someone in navy, I think they are sophisticated, effortless, not trying too hard but with an innate sense of style...
Want to be a picture of elegance? Then take Shepherdson's lesson in chic sophistication!

It's a classic, timeless neutral (we'll always love it!), but it can be draining and harsh for some complexions. Similarly, a wardrobe without pink, or green, or blue can be expected... We've all got our preferred shades, after all. But a wardobe without navy blue is a mystery indeed: Coco Chanel loved it... So why shouldn't we!?
Not only is navy a mega flattering shade, it's also a fantastic alternative to black, which so many know and love. It couldn't look better with paired-back camels, crisp whites, or millenial pinks. It's demure, versatile and hugely underrated... Which is why, over her at The Shirt Company, we're championing its comeback in a big way.
