Navy-The New Black in 2013

The color Navy Blue is becoming very popular in 2013. It happens to be one of Pantone’s Spring 2013 colors; they call it Monaco Blue! In doing research for today’s post, I wanted to know more about the color Navy Blue…what does it mean? When I wear the color, what does it say about me; what am I projecting to others when I wear the color Navy? Here are a few descriptive words:

Trust
Balance
Faith
Value
Depth
Freedom
Calmness
Power*
Tradition
Reliability

I love colors that project Power, there’s just something to be said about a woman (or man) in charge….love it!
Whether you wear Navy Blue to work in the form of a business suit, as your choice of Nail Color or taking on the Nautical Motif during a day of shopping, you won’t go wrong with Navy this Spring!

So without further adieu, let’s take a look at some of the nights Best Dressed!

The Designers

Charlize Theron stole the night with Couture Dior gown, not to mention the haircut that completed her overall look!  She was my Best Dressed choice of the evening.

Halle Berry looked radiant in Versace, but doesn’t she always look amazing?

Anne Hathaway was classic in Prada.

Jennifer Lawrence, the Best Actress winner also wore Dior and looked like a princess.

What a night for all things fashion!

Mixing Prints

mixedprints4For as long as I can remember, it has always been a huge fashion No No to mix prints when it comes to fashion. Everything had to match in order for one not to come across as a fashion nightmare.
Those days are long gone. Here you have a simple example of how you can indeed mix prints and be trendy at the same time. The key to success here is to find one thing in common, most likely it will be the colors, and make those work. In doing so you will be sure to pull off a great look!

My favorites are Monaco Blue, Emerald and Nectarine. Each of this season’s colors in my opinion represent power and confidence.

Try adding these colors into your current wardrobe-pairing them with some of your staple pieces; I’m sure you will come to love the color choices just as much as I do.
