Personal Style


Growing up, magazines were filled with rules like "don't wear black and navy together" and "wear black with everything but brown".  I personally love pairing black with both brown and navy, but am always surprised at the amount of people that still don't mix.


Some of my favorite examples are above. 
Are you a mixer or do you stick to the rules?

I don't mind black and navy together, actually it's one of my fav combos! X

Ahhh I'm so glad it's so much more fun to break all the rules! Love these colors together!

I had a feeling all of you who read would be "mixers" ;)

I'm totally with you on mixing. I love navy and black, and brown and black together. I remember those 'rules' from growing up. I think it's all about intention though.

That's nonsense, I always wear black and navy together. My leather jacket is my staple jacket and I wear it with EVERYTHING!

I DO mix....and I'm *ahem* mature, shall we say {40's}. I get so tickled because people think I'm so kind of "style guru" LOL But, give me the mix over the match any day!!! :D

I totally agree! I actually hate it when magazines tell you what/what not to do, because I think everyone should have their own personal style and there are absolutely no rules on what to wear!! x

I just bought two beautiful navy and white print shirts and was thinking they would look good with black. Time to break "the rules."
