Three fashion rules to live by….
Navy blue and black, do they work? Yes, if it is light navy blue with black. Avoid dark navy blue with black.
Should you mix different patterns? It’s okay as long as one of them is understated and do not clash too much. For example, a polka dot blouse with a flora skirt is okay. But it should have one or two colors in common with each piece. That always freaks me out. Patterns on patterns, can’t pull it off.
And should you hide your full figure with loose clothing? The experts say oversized clothing tends to make you look bigger, not smaller. Wear something that fits and you are good to go.
