Trend Alert: Black & Blue

Wasn't there a point in time when people didn't think black and blue went together? Seeing as how the most common colors associated with a bruise are "black and blue" I don't really understand how people thought these colors didn't complement each other. Together, they create a dark mystique that oozes cool and collected. I have spotted this color combo on several starlets as of late and I'm totally into it. These three looks in particular are all very different, but all work, proving that black and blue is pretty versatile. Blast those naysayers who said it couldn't work!

The common denominator in two of these looks is layers. All three decided to go with noir shoes - probably the best way to work it. As well, the blue is more navy and moody; although bright blue works and sequins do too! This trend will take you into the Fall and beyond - but kbella already knows this!

To see my black & blue outfit,

Lauren Moffatt Sleeveless A-line Dress, $273.


J. Crew Ella patent-leather T-strap flats, $118.


bebe Basket Shawl Cardigan, $80.

i still will not wear true navy with black - the navy that is so dark it is often worn with black on accident. i love midnight with black though. i think this old rule is much more like "black and brown don't go together" - when the brown is also very dark. midnight blue and camel/tan brown look great with black because there is enough contrast.

I've always liked pairing black with blue. But I think it should be saved for the winter. Right now I am pairing other colors, like cool dark brown with dove gray, and it looks so fresh! I never follow "rules" and just do what appeals to me. After-all, how you dress should be a reflection of your personality.

I remember that old fashion rule! My older sister used to chide me for wearing the two together but I think it looks great when done correctly. Out of the three celebrities picture, Reese pulls it off the best.

...i guess i'd have to check it out on me. i'm not sure i'm sold on the idea that black and navy go together. i've always gone with gray or muted brown. it looks ok here...

Actually very true, I too remember they were a no-no. But looking at these pictures, the colours are really wittily put together. Thanks for the tip, must look for some dark blue shoes next...
