Revamp 2015: Back to Black and Blues

Resolved – to step up my game.

Resolved – to be more adventurous.

Resolved – to try new things.

Sound familiar? There’s something about January 1 that elicits motivation. And then there’s something about January 13th that conjures fatigue. Most resolutions are well intended, but the clutter of life and disappearance of the holidays makes our resoluteness much less profound than intended.

So let’s talk fashion resolutions.

Want to be polished and put together, but not bland? If you want to be A-game chic with adventurous style, go back to black… with just a little bit of blue. Many women are scared to pair navy with black (almost akin to the fear of wearing two different shades of black). I tell my clients to take baby steps, add grey to your dark-neutral potpourri. Soon enough you’ll be captain of the navy and black team and without the end of January burnout.

 The below pictures were taken by my dear, talented friend, Ashley Revell. If you live in NYC and need a smart photog, look this girl up!

This month, look for pieces in deep shades of navy to wear with your favorite black jeans or work trousers. Top this with a grey boyfriend cardi and pointy heel. See? Baby steps never looked so resolute!
