Is it a “do” or a “don’t” to wear navy and black together? I have a pink blazer with navy trim and am always debating whether I can wear black pants with it!

I’ve never been one to abide by the sartorial rules. White after Labor Day? Try and stop me. Bare legs in the winter? Do it all the time. Navy and black? Often and (gasp) by mixing prints and patterns.

Navy and black is a surprisingly perfect match, and one of my favorite color combinations. The key is to choose a brighter or lighter navy to pair with black; by creating more of a contrast, you make a bigger statement. Adding a third color into the mix — like your pink blazer — helps balance the dark combination and keeps it a little more interesting. Throw in a metallic bag or shoe, and you’re good to go!
