Navy/Black = Clash/Contrast?

today’s closetcast:  thigh high Image




The hint on my Facebook page as to my outfit post today was pretty much a giveaway. I love the combination of navy and black, although traditionally they were said to clash. I like how clean and minimalist it feels.

I bought this tent dress in Japan this past summer and still love it. It has such a modest shape, but the short hem keeps it flirty… sometimes a little too flirty on a windy day. I thought the short hem and thigh-high height of these boots made this look a little more unique than pairing with some simple heels.

What do you guys think?

dress: from japan, jacket: J. Crew, boots: Topshop (but really coveting these), necklace: vintage

  5. Really like this combo – you’re right it does feel minimalistic – for some reason the color combo reminds me of something Sofia Coppola would wear? I like that you added the necklace and boots though! Anyhow, great outfit – love it!
