I have to admit that I am a bit of a fashion rule-follower, and I was very hesitant to try out one of the more daring fall 2012 trends-black and blue. However, upon experimentation I have concluded that this combination doesn’t have to be a fashion “don’t” but can actually be very sophisticated and sexy. I would recommend sticking with a brighter, matte navy color that more dramatically contrasts the black. That way, your eye is not totally confused by the similarities in color. If you do go with a darker navy, keep the black more subtle by working in some sheer black tights. Don’t forget to add in silver or gold accessories to boost the shine-factor!
