Navy is one of my favourite colours. Not only is it chic, elegant and less severe than black, but it suits every skintone and hair colour. Best of all, navy comes into fashion so regularly, some would argue that like leopard print , it is a mainstay and therefore never out of fashion. In my eyes, this spells go forth and invest !

This season, in keeping with the 70s theme, there are ways to wear navy that will keep it current and on trend. Ofcourse, navy always looks great with white or black but have you tried it with tan, orange or camel ?

Above :Pop your navy with some 70s orange hued shearling, round sunglasses and gold for an instant seasonal update ( Zimmermann jumpsuit, Coach jacket, Sunday Somewhere sunglasses, Tiffany T bracelet, Cartier bracelet


Try navy in a bell sleaved jumpsuit with some tan accessories ( Zimmermann jumpsuit, A-esque bag, Topshop platforms)


Jump on the bell sleeved and fluted skirt bandwagon – it’s all the rage this season ( Ellery top, Sportsmax skirt, Aquazurra sandals from Net-a-porter )


Keeping it simple : turtlenecks and maxi skirts are a match made in fashion heaven ( Zimermann turtleneck, Michael Lo Sordo skirt, Mode collective sandals

Green is one of those colours that has a pretty bad reputation as being an unflattering colour, but is it true? The autumn/winter '14/'15 runways from Gucci, Balmain and Isabel Marant were awash with green in multiple shades and the colour worked. Whether khaki or jewel-toned green, the palette looked beautiful paired with burgundy, brown, cranberry and dark yellow. I especially loved the way it brought back a modern '70s flavour into little A-line skirts and coats or the military cool it evokes with black. It inspired me to have a little play with pieces available now to get a head start on the trend.

Culottes + green = two awesome new trends put together! I love the shape and elegance of culottes. Here, the burgundy  perfectly offsets the green while the tan pops the tones further.
