Midnight Express


Which colours spring to mind when conjuring up a typical spring/summer wardrobe? Pastels, all ice cream edible and scrumptious, for sure; whites, absolutely; and vivid brights definitely. Tick them all: these are standard fashion summer colours. But for those of the more, shall we say, gothic persuasion have you considered the deepest, darkest, inkiest navy? Almost black but more a heavy midnight sky. Like the sort of sky at midsummer, after dark and in the countryside, complete with piecing yellow stars a-twinkling.

The biggest plus of navy is that it looks striking both with a tanĀ andĀ worn with the classic spring colour palette. So mix with your whites and brights to keep contrasts clean and striking.
