Yellow and navy blue is an unexpected color combination for me. But since I have been in love with sailor pants it is only natural that I would explore all the possible nautical permutations. Yellow and navy blue is not something that comes to mind first when you think of nautical. Blue and white is the classic pairing. However, red and yellow are also a part of the colors you see on the high seas.
As you may know, I love these sailor pants. I have and wore the white version here and just couldn’t help getting them in blue. The white buttons stand out against the blue linen fabric and highlight the sailor design feature.
Yellow and navy blue combine well provided the yellow is bright, almost fluorescent. The brightness makes an otherwise warm toned color appear more cool and appropriately paired with another cool tone.
Even though I don’t have many yellow items in my wardrobe I recognize a growing trend with this color so I will be adding some in the near future. From neon and pear, lemon and citron, to mustard and turmeric – yellow is popping up all over the place and I’m noticing a food and spice trend too. I am specifically looking at shoes and sandals at this time, so stay tuned!
For now, I hope you enjoy and are inspired by this yellow and navy blue combination!
