Or, not so much noir as navy…at least in my case. Although black-backed botanicals are popping up on the runways and have an extensive history in home decor, I find it a bit dark for me. Fortunately, fashion moves fast because this trend has already been interpreted in lighter and more wearable versions. I say that because I love the way navy can be both dark and colorful at the same time. And, I find that black never does much to make me feel prettier, whereas navy complements blonde hair and has the ability to bring out the pink in your complexion.
Not surprisingly, it was not hard to find other sources of this dark trend. One stop at Anthropologie.com gave me plenty of additional options including these three favorites.
