Outfit of the Week: Blue on Black


There are two things I thought I'd never do: wear silk (not since the 90s) and wear navy & black together. But 2011 is all about taking risks, right? And so this outfit was born.

  • Normally, I'd wear this silk blouse under a jacket/blazer but decided to let it be front and center.
  • Black skinnies (but black pants would be an excellent choice for work)
  • A chunky, chandelier necklace or two
  • A soft pink lipstick
  • Navy smokey eye (here's a great tutorial)
Would you wear blue and black?

  5. Honestly, I wouldn't just "decide" to do it. LOL
    BUT if it's style and others are doing it, and I could pull it off like the above outfit (love it) then, YEA I WOULD!

    Happy Tuesday Toots!

  13. Love your blog! I'm a new reader as of right now. :)

    I do navy/black since time immemorial. I have blue eyes with a black line around them so it always flattered me, but I always felt super awkward doing it too since these colours are *supposed* to clash.

  15. I love the idea of pairing this with a basic nude lip or a pale pink shade, it's a good way to not be overpowered by the outfit.

  16. These days I try hard not to give my opinion on things because I know that one day I will be hypocrite. For example: I always use to say don't wear black and blue together because you'll look like a bruise, and now of course I love it!

    Cute outfit!
