Celebrities Get Black and Blue for Fall

You may remember your mother’s fashion myth: Don’t wear black and navy blue together. Sorry mom, but there are some sartorial laws we just can’t support. The reason for this once outdated rule? The often ridiculed coupling was considered too close for comfort, as in they are both dusky hues that can easily be mistaken for one another. The solution? Keeping your navy truly navy, so that it instantly separates itself from the black upon sight. Even if it’s as simple as adding a pair of opaque black tights to a midnight blue dress, wearing black and blue is elegant and absurdly easy to achieve with the closet-building basics you already own.

Take a look at how these super stylish stars pair the colors together perfectly, proving that black and blue can be more than just a bruise.
