Rediscover navy this fall


Navy and Black is all the rage this fall

The blazer clad U.S. Olympic team’s entrance at the London game’s opening ceremony presaged the popularity of navy as the color for fall. Tagged by Neiman Marcus as the “new neutral”, navy commands an elegant and approachable image for men and women.  Fall fashion week featured the unlikely pairing of black and navy, as well as navy dominated prints with smatterings of other blues, like cobalt.

The psychological effect created by navy and it’s compatibility with other colors could explain its strong return on the fashion scene. Although navy epitomizes sartorial seriousness, it is less overpowering than black.  Because navy looks less severe than its color cousin, it softens the lines and features of those who wear it.  This fact partly explains why political candidates and business professionals gravitate toward navy. It also blends beautifully with a rainbow of accent colors such as red, grey, yellow and pink.

Navy minded fashionistas in Greenville, SC can find just what they want in this shade at Fab’rik in the shops at Greenridge. The boutique offers clothing, shoes and accessories that express “high style without attitude or sticker shock”.  Every distinctive item in this store, except for the denim, sells for below $100. Their navy feather print sheer chiffon long sleeve top for $52 breathes life into even the most sedate suit. When worn with skinny jeans, the top’s back exposed zipper adds sophistication to a casual look. Fab’rik’s navy and white contrast dress, styled in the color blocked tradition, fits the bill for an ideal summer to fall transitional dress. Wear it with flat sandals on the weekends or heels during the work week.  Known for their head turning jewelry, Fab’rik’s necklace collection includes an Egyptian inspired blue collar necklace, suitable for the likes of Cleopatra herself. This outstanding piece at an affordable price of $36, exemplifies the chic monochromatic trend of wearing blue on blue.
