Black and Navy

 By now the alleged fashion faux pas of simultaneously wearing black and navy together has been deemed undeniably antiquated, and completely inaccurate.  Pairing the two creates a fresh, and modern contrast of color, and brings an element of the unexpected, which can prove invaluable when picking your pieces; they don’t need to be detailed or intriguing, simply because the dark disparity of color does all the work.  Subtle, yet effective.  Part of what has been so exciting about fashion recently is the breaking of rules and the license for creativity and expression.  There are not too many sartorial laws that are still applicable at present, and the trends seem to be turning towards a cleaner, unhampered approach to getting dressed.  We are editing our wardrobes to make ourselves happy, rather than to fit a certain mold or style du jour.

I wore this outfit for a Sunday at Barnes & Noble with my kids, and it provided a perfectly comfortable and chic ensemble to chase small children in a teeming bookstore.  The whole outfit felt very 60′s, so I wore my wig with bangs and round oversize sunglasses.
