Fashion Over Reason: So Close, Yet So Far

So Close, Yet So Far

Black & Navy Balenciaga skirt COS navy peplum

Have you ever pondered what makes people's aesthetic points of view so different from one another? The thought functionality that sends the message from the eye to the brain is extremely complex, I'm sure of it, but what makes it a positive or negative relay? Certainly, it's a process dependent of a person's environment and a lifetime of what they've been exposed to, but what encompasses diverging opinions? No matter, the world would be a sad, dull place without them, but it remains great food for thought.

I am indeed guilty of going a little deep (perhaps a tad too deep) while ruminating on color pairings. It's a well-known thing to shun certain hue couplings, like the one I'm wearing here: black and navy blue. But why? Because they are too close a match, yet too different from one another? Bullocks. While they are a clash by certain standards, it happens to be my number one favorite color match of all time. There is something so chic and elegant about it, I cannot understand how some people would not be able to appreciate it. Maybe it has something to do with inner wires? Again, too deep...

What are your thoughts on black and navy worn together: yay or nay?

Definite yay! Why not? It's like white after labor day or no miniskirts after 35 - if you like it, then rock it. Besides, they're both neutrals and neutrals always go together.
