Colour matching


When it comes to finding the perfect colour earrings for your navy-blue dress, you’ve got a lot of options. As dark blue is such a neutral colour, the whole vibe of the outfit can be influenced by the colour of earrings you opt for.


While considering the colour of your accessories, be sure to also contemplate the style and setting which would best complement a navy-blue dress. Of course, the ‘correct’ answer varies in different settings and scenarios. Even so, here are some classic choices to inspire your accessorising…


Earthy tones


If you want to add earrings to your look, but you also want to keep your outfit understated (for the workplace for instance), any earthy and tonal accessories will go down a treat.

Tangy coral


For a brighter look that will seamlessly bring your blue dress into the summer months, choose a tangy, contrasting colour such as burnt orange or coral.


This contrast will draw eyes to your statement earrings, and the simplicity of a dark dress will accent them nicely.


For a look that you’ll feel confident in, yet is still simple and sophisticated, this is an excellent combination.


Silver glam


When the sunny days are over, and you’re looking to accessorise your navy-blue dress for a glamourous evening party, switch the bright or earthy studs for some glamourous diamond earrings.


As we’ve mentioned, dark blue dresses are often sleek and simple, so this gives you plenty of room to factor in a bold pair of earrings that will sparkle in the evening light and become the focal point of your outfit.


For this glamourous evening look, pair your blue dress with some diamond earrings set in silver gold. Sleek Art Deco drop earrings would go particularly well.
