Is Navy a Neutral?

Updated: May 13

Spoiler alert: I say yes, navy is a neutral.

It's perfect for occasions when black is too dramatic, and brown is doesn't fit the bill.

Neutral, indeed. You can wear it with matching dark blue accessories, as well as black ones.

The navy newsboy

Speaking of bills, this newsboy cap has a feminine bill that's firm yet flexible.

I don't care for large, stiff brims on newsboys. I find they look too masculine, especially with no hair showing.

This cap is a ladylike shade of deep midnight blue, and the outer fabric and lining are 100% cotton, which I appreciate.

The underlayers

To keep my hairline tidy, I'm wearing a black headband and nylon stocking cap underneath the hat.

If you have a small headsize, you might consider these cotton-spandex undercaps for reigning in stray hair and adding fullness to the crown.

My head size is an average 21.5" around my hairline (22.5" when measuring over my ears), and the cap fits comfortably.

The modest outfit

I've styled the cap with a matching navy cotton-blend duster cardigan, and a belt I made with foldover elastic. I made the necklace with navy glass seed beads from Fire Mountain Gems.

You can find a similar ready-made necklace here. These magnetic necklace clasps and closures are life-altering.

May everything fall into place for you today.
