Most women’s wardrobes include dark blue colours, which is a wardrobe staple along with black, white and grey.
Navy blue is a great colour to have in your wardrobe because of its versatility, working well with everything from formal workwear to partywear to beachwear.
It is a good idea to ensure you have jewellery that will complement blue clothing for all types of occasions.
Jewellery for navy blue evening wear
A dark blue maxi dress can be accessorised with gold for a glamorous look. This could include big statement pieces of jewellery, such as a necklace, earrings or bangle. However, it is important not to go over the top. Less is more when it comes to jewellery.
Another option for a glamorous look is silver. In much the same way as gold, silver jewellery can be used to give a classic and timeless look to a blue maxi dress, with 1950s-style vintage jewellery working particularly well.
Used in combination with either gold or silver, blue gemstones, such as sapphire, are another option. According to the Gem Society blue is one of the most popular colours of gemstones for jewellery.
The understated look
If gold and silver aren’t your style, bronze jewellery could be an option to add a touch of elegance to your outfit. Bronze jewellery worn with a simple dark blue dress will give an antique and interesting look that you can be sure will set your outfit apart from others.
The casual look
If you are looking to inject even more colour into your blue outfit, turquoise jewellery and accessories will stand out and work well for a fun, summery or informal event.
Yellow is another great contrasting colour that is often coupled with navy blue. This look is another one that’s just right for summer or spring. Another option for a glamorous look is silver. In much the same way as gold, silver jewellery can be used to give a classic and timeless look to a blue maxi dress, with 1950s-style vintage jewellery working particularly well. You do not need much yellow for it to stand out against a dark blue outfit. A splash of yellow in your earrings, a necklace or bracelet will complete the look.
Always on trend
For a timeless look, you could opt for pearls, which can be worn as earrings, a necklace, a bracelet or in a brooch. You can opt for large pearls or small strands or clusters of smaller pearls. Pearls can lend themselves to both formal or casual wear.
