Get The Look: In The Navy

With all of the trends that last five whole seconds, it’s nice to see a designer working with classic color and creating something totally fresh. Giorgio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection was a sea of navy in many different shades and textures. He mixed chiffon and lace with patent leather, crochet, satin and twill. It is such a wonderfully refined way to subtly play with silhouette that we decided to use one of his looks as inspiration for an outfit you can wear this season. A great thing about a look like this is all of the pieces are ones that can be worn in a myriad of ways. Plus, you probably have half of these garments in your closet already so it will be really easy to reproduce. Don’t like navy? Try this styling idea in browns or grays, using texture and opacity to create interest.
