Over the summer season this year shades of blue were massively on trend, with the colour most often seen paired with white or yellow for a summery feel. This autumn/winter the trend for blue continues with navy being the most popular shade. As the weather starts to get a bit colder it is time to add some warmth to your navy look, pair the colour with some classic autumnal hues to bring your favourite navy and blue clobber up to date. Here we have selected some colours that we think are navy’s best friends for the winter season; with a bit of outfit inspiration to kick start your autumn/winter wardrobe.
Burgundy will without doubt be one of the most popular colours this season and with brands such as Fred Perry, Farah, Lyle & Scott and Lacoste Live working the colour in to their latest arrivals it couldn’t be easier to keep your look up to date. This popular autumn/winter shade works perfectly with navy making it really easy to incorporate the burgundy colour-trend in to your already existing wardrobe of navy jeans and jackets. We love this colour pairing and seemingly so do some of our favourite brands.
Brown is definitely the colour of choice when opting to smarten up your navy look, brown leather and suede accessories such as desert boots, belts and bags are the perfect finishing touches to your smart-casual navy outfit and make a welcome change to black accessories. Brown might not be the most appealing colour on its own but when paired with shades of blue the often dull colour is given a lift, making your autumnal brown knitwear and jackets stand out.
The best way to wear red with navy is to bring in some denim, touches of red have always looked great on denim (think red stitching on jeans and the classic red Levis logo on a denim jacket) and this season you’ll be right on trend if you go for this classic combination. Simply pair red with navy or go for items that bring the two colours together such as the Barbour jumper and Armani tee we’ve selected here. Numerous other brands including Fred Perry, CP Company and Paul & Shark have combined red and navy this season – making the trend really easy to get right.
