Navy can sometimes be unfairly categorised as the colour of school uniforms, Nurses uniforms and the lifeblood of bankers. But navy is truly a very chic and adaptable hue. Add it to a breton stripe and hello sailor! Wear it on a blazer, and tip your hat to preppy style. And make like Lea Michelle and wear it on a shimmering evening gown and look outstanding. It's smart without being dull, and is a nice break from the safety of black. A dash of sheen works well as do great big knuckle dusting jewels and metallic accessories. Tally ho.
