It should come as no surprise that New Yorkers live in black. Hell, I’m one of ‘em. Even though I’m perpetually in need of a lint roller, dressing in all black makes coordinating outfits in the morning a cinch—and I’m always sure that what I’m wearing doesn’t clash.
But last week, Pinterest debuted its top 100 emerging trends that’ll be huge in 2017, and among them: Navy is the new black. (Well, Pinterest reports it’ll be big in home décor, but we’d wager a guess it’ll be just as huge in fashion, too.) While I’m a creature of habit who generally cowers at the thought of change, I’m pretty happy about the news. Before you shake your head and dismiss it, hear us out: Not only does navy complement black—seriously, it’s almost impossible not to look chic in the color combo—but it adds a slight depth to any outfit, especially if you mix textures. Navy is so versatile, in fact, that it’s basically a neutral.
Ahead, we found 21 dresses, sweaters, coats, shoes—you get the picture—in the brooding hue. Shop them all below.
