It’s a colourway that has become a hallmark of stylish interiors in recent years as well as remaining a firm fashion favourite on catwalks around the world. Today, we want to take a closer look at this subtle but beautiful pairing and discover just why it works so well. Forget black and white, navy and grey are the modern neutrals you need in your wardrobe right now.
Why do Navy and Grey Work So Well Together?
Navy and grey are so appealing because they behave like neutrals while remaining vibrant unique colours. You can pair navy and grey with almost any other shade in your wardrobe, without worrying about a clash of colours. In fact, they can help other colours shine even brighter. Yellow, green, and even red pop beautifully against navy and grey. Another important benefit of the navy-grey palette is its universally flattering nature. It suits every skin tone, every hair, and eye colour. Navy and grey are some of the hardest working colours around, feeling both effortlessly modern and timelessly classic. In other words, you need this colour partnership in your life.
How Should I Wear Navy and Grey?
Navy and grey sit against each other beautifully, so you can channel this look simply by picking up more navy and grey pieces for everyday wear. But to really make this look pop, try to combine clothes and accessories that have different textures and styles. For example, inky navy knitwear looks sensational against grey tailoring. You can also make both navy and grey shine brighter by adding an accent colour. Gold or mustard accessories are both great at bringing out the deeper tones of these new neutrals.
