Yes. I think as long as the colours of the pieces aren't faded at all and are rich, deep shades, it can look very sophisticated.

Sometimes but generally not.

Generally not.

Yes, very chic if everything is in good nick

no, well not for me - I can't even wear black opaque tights with navy.

But other people can pull it off well I think

I would have previously said no but I just bought a navy and black dress from Warehouse and the combination looks really great.

It is very now. A super chic work colleague wears a beautiful navy jacket with a black outfit and looks gorgeous so I have been tentatively trying it out myself.

Yes navy&black are good .
And I like brown&black

I never claimed to have any fashion sense though blush

I used to get up at 5.30am and left my clothes out the night before. Got dressed in the dark in the morning. Got to work on day with navy trousers and a black top on. I was horrified and the receptionist had dressed the same. We got complimented!

Most definitely.

I can’t actually see a reason why not and have a lovely navy satin dress with a black lace overlay . BUT I hear my long dead grandmother in my head every time I put it on. Never wear navy with black, never wear gold and silver together, never wear diamonds with pearls. In my personal circumstances, that last one is the easiest to achieve!
