If you have been following me for any length of time, you know my obsession with black. You might have the same infatuation. If you are a woman, you typically fall into the black group or the bright prints group. Very few of you straddle both sides equally. If you look at your wardrobe, black is most likely the dominant color for most of your shirts, sweaters, jackets, and shoes. Do not apologize for it; black is incredible for so many reasons. Yet, navy blue is black’s kissing cousin and usually goes under-appreciated. Well, not this year, navy blue is having its heyday not only in women’s fashion but also in home decor.
Navy Blue Benefits
- Navy blue contracts and conceals, verses lighter colors that expand and highlight. This approach holds for your wardrobe, as well as the design elements of your home.
- If you want something to look smaller or make it disappear, add a dark color or accent. Check out Black is the Ultimate Slimming Color for more information.
- Navy tends to be more gentle on the eye than stark black.
- Darker colors can also create a dramatic effect both on your frame as well as in your home. So even though most of us consider navy blue a neutral, it is also a striking choice.

Navy Blue Trend in Fashion
I have pulled together different hues of navy blue options to supplement your wardrobe. Moreover, do not shy away from wearing black and blue together. Some of you think it is an urban legend to wear them together. Yet most fashion experts disagree entirely. It is a subdued pairing that elevates an outfit. If you can not endorse the navy blue trend wholeheartedly, just add a few sprinkles into your ensemble.
Navy Blue Trend in Home Decor
Both Pantone and Sherwin Williams maintain deep roots in navy blue as their color of the year for 2020. Pantone’s color of the year is Classic Blue, and Sherwin Williams’ is Naval. After both of these announcements, there was no doubt that versions of navy blue would dominate the home decor category. You will find navy this year in almost home furnishing and decor brands.
