I hear a lot of the hosts saying black with navy looks good - what do you Ladies think? I have nice black silky cardi and tank but cannot seem to find midi length black skirt - did see a nice kind of dark navy skirt which I do not own yet but am thinking about it. What do you Ladies think. I would pair it with black hose and shoes. Thank you.

Re: Black top with navy skirt

I heard Jill say that to one of the designers (don't remember which one), and I felt like he cringed. I wouldn't do it, but if it were styled exactly right it would probably look okay. I wouldn't feel like I'd be able to put the two colors together properly. I've seen it that looked good though.

I don't really think they look good together, but that is just me.

Navy and black look hideous together. I don't own anything in navy. I consider it the worst color. I don't consider it a neutral or a stand alone color. Just god awful.

I wear navy and black frequently - love the combination.

Fine with me too. Not a common combination, but goes well together.

All this over navy?

You post frequently about your wardrobe of jeans. Do you wear dark denim jeans?

Re: Black top with navy skirt

I wear black tops fairly frequently when I wear navy denim jeans, medium or dark wash. I think black with navy in other fabrics looks like a mistake.
