lf the fans of navy blue will be especially delighted this season, as it is coming back into the fashion world, big-time. Navy blue looks classy and sophisticated, but not as classic and formal as black, which makes this colour an ideal solution for both day and evening outfits.

Even though navy blue outfits are wearable and appropriate for various occasions, many men are in doubt how to combine them with other colours and clothing pieces. So, if you are among those who can’t wait to fill the closet with navy-coloured items, check out these suggestions on how to wear this ultra fashionable colour:

#1 : Combine navy with pastel earthy tones

Excellent colour choices which go well with navy blue are warm, earthy hues, especially the colour of sand, khaki nuances, caramel and various shades of brown.

Even though many people think it’s a big fashion mistake to wear navy blue and black together, the situation is actually the opposite, those two colours can work well together, but you need to know a few tricks. For instance, it’s great if you refresh any black and navy blue outfits with an accessory in a different colour, such as charcoal.

Also, if you decide to wear a navy shirt with a black suit, it would be ideal to repeat navy in accessories, such as a navy blue belt or even a stylish hat. For an eye-catching black ‘n’ navy effect, fashion gurus recommend matching clothes with different textures, such as denim and leather or silk and wool.

#2 : Include navy blue in casual and formal outfits

If there’s a piece of clothes every man should have in his wardrobe that would definitely be a modern cut navy blue blazer. It’s greatly combinable with various styles and colours, except with navy trousers (you don’t want an old-fashioned office look), so you can match it with khaki pants and achieve a trendy country style, grey trousers or, if you like a bit of an extravagant look, go for a navy blazer and modern maroon trousers.

Guys who are fond of the casual street-style are free to combine navy blue custom jeans with a well cut white shirt, stylish caramel moccasins and a belt and a classic navy blazer. When it comes to pairing a navy blazer with shirts, a white button-up one is always to safest choice, but if you don’t want a classic look, opt for a white shirt with navy stripes or make a statement with the light salmon one.

#3 : Stylize your outfit with navy accessories

Navy is unbelievably stylish when included in accessories, especially if you prefer matching this colour with black, or when brown, khaki and caramel prevail in your outfit. For a laid-back urban-style look, pair a navy blue scarf with a brown cardigan, or a casual navy hat with the same coloured baggy pants and a grey shirt with a modern print.

Men who prefer classic and more formal outfits can choose anything from stylish navy ties, belts and glasses with a modern navy blue frame to leather navy blue shoes and briefcase.

According to fashion experts, navy blue is the synonym for style and sophistication, which should be the reason enough to trade your black clothes for modern and classy navy blue pieces.
