I love midnight blue as an alternative to black at the moment. It's a colour I've overlooked up until this point but it really is very classy, sophisticated and classic. I'm drawn to midnight blue because it's a good option for me to wear to work. As I said before, my personal style and love of bold colours and patterns doesn't exactly align with the fact that I have degrees in commerce and law and am working in those areas. From being a student, I'm so used to wearing exactly what I want whenever I want and I didn't desire to give that up entirely when I entered the workforce. So instead of dressing in conservative corporate wear, I tend to wear my usual style but in darker colours. For example, the outfit I posted here is what I wore on my first day. I also have a dark dress with a white peter pan collar and I like to wear my navy blue cardigan over a polka dot dress. As time goes on, I'm sure I'll push the boundaries more and more because lets face it; dressing in beautiful clothes will increase my motivation to go to work! Midnight blue pieces can make such a statement too; I'm especially coveting those Christian Louboutins. Oh wow they are incredible!
