As a young girl I remember being told you can never mix certain colours together such as pink and red or even different patterns together, this was a complete “no no”, and I always wondered why? But who was I to question this rule it must have been there for a reason so I never dared to break this rule, not even a sneaky try behind closed doors. Someone once told me in a professional capacity “once you know and understand the rules, rules are there to be broken”. How correct was this man, once you have the knowledge why not experiment!!
Now here is where the problem lyes, it is instilled in us as human beings not to break the rules whatever they may be. So when I suggest you should wear a navy blazer with those black trousers the look of sheer horror on their face, it would almost seem like I told them to wear a bikini to a black tie event!! I have found some amazing examples to show you and to prove that this is not a wacky trend that will be gone in the morning that in fact it very sophisticated … It begs the question “why has it taken so long for us to diminish this rule?” Frankly it would take too long to even find where it derived from. All you need to know is yes this works and it works exceptionally well… Happy braking of the rules!!
Black and navy.
