Fall is officially here everyone, even in Houston! Between the comfy sweaters, dark colors, boots and layers, fall is by far my favorite season to dress for. One of the hottest colors for Fall 2017 is a color that continues to gain importance with each season.  The color is Navy, which has definitely earned it’s place in fashion as the ‘new black’.   It’s Alyssa here and I’m chatting about whats hot with Navy this season, which includes some styling tips as well!

Navy is a universally flattering shade, not only for body type but skin tone too! It’s a great alternative to black (a shade that I love so much!) and is a color that makes any outfit look  chic and effortless. The shade Navy Peony was also part of Pantone‘s Fashion Color Report for Fall 2017…proof that this color is as awesome as we think!

The Navy that’s trending this season not only applies to classic sweaters and pants, but to fabrics like velvet, accessories, home decor plus the chicest way to wear Navy, which started as a European idea that has taken on great strength here as well.  That is wearing this deep shade of blue with black as well!

Navy is certainly a color I plan to buy more of and you should too! Check out some of my style inspiration below.
