Forget pastels, go dark this Spring and rock navy blue!
Spring has sprung, you can smell it in the air! Days are getting longer, warmer, and the energy is shifting! You're motivated to clean up your winter hibernation clutter. Maybe you're rocking a new haircut. You might even be making your summer vacation plans! Undoubtedly, Spring is the season of change and growth- metaphorically and also quite literally. As spring flowers bloom we follow suit. It's time to bring out our pastel pieces that have been collecting dust all winter. Does this mean you need to swear off all dark colors? Absolutely not.
There's a lot about dark colors to love, specifically a lot to love about navy. Navy is more diverse than blue and more vibrant than black. This makes it the perfect in-between color to keep in touch with your dark side this Spring. Here are some of our favorite ways to mix navy into our Spring wardrobe!
