There was a time when pairing black and navy was considered a style mistake. But add a neutral such as tan or beige and this three-way colour combo is the epitome of chic style. To wear these complimentary tones in harmony, here's some street-style inspiration and great new additions to any wardrobe - hand picked by editor Trudi Brewer.
Head-to-toe black is a winter staple, however, the addition of blue (even a midnight-blue sneaker or navy handbag) will instantly add interest to this classic neutral.
An all-navy outfit will stray toward looking mumsy, and appear more like a uniform than a fashion statement. Add black and tan to give it a youthful edge.
Add texture by teaming navy cashmere, with black faux fur or leather. Also, a navy trench with a silk shirt over classic blue jeans, are perfect options for work and the weekend.
Doubling up your denim looks best in clean washes and classic shapes, such as a straight leg jean or a man-style shirt.
