Navy and green summer outfits – some for quite warm weather, and others that I saw in the more spring-like transitional coolness a couple of week ago. All of them were fresh, pretty, and stood out in the crowd.
I don’t know if anybody noticed, but if you liked the way these colors looks,replicated a few of these outfits in your own wardrobe, and were a little bit rigorous in sticking to one shade of green, you’d have a pretty nifty capsule wardrobe, or a pretty organized suitcase full of clothes:
earlier than normal post. for some reason these greens give me more an impression of winter than summer.

Maybe because there are a lot of sweaters here? A lot of these sightings took place a couple of weeks ago when the weather was cooler…
i agree !! we live in a hot climate -we wear sweaters only in winter. no long sleeves
during summer neither cardigan.but its still lovely!!!

I LOVE navy and green…anytime of year…but I seem to like it better for the warmer weather months. Great combinations. Have a wonderful week, Janice!!
I don't know why my mother always told me that you should never wear blue and green together, but I really like it. In my fifties now, and I still feel like a an obnoxious teenager when I do.
I was told the same thing! Also pink and orange!

Love these particular tones of green I don't often see. Your combinations are even more striking.
These are lovely combinations. For me, the challenge would be to find the same shade of green in a number of items. I did see a lovely pair of flat by Arche that were green the other day. I bought them in black, but can see that they green could be useful.
Even though I live in a warm/hot climate, I can use these examples for my climate. For example, I have a navy viscose jersey Eileen Fisher dress (actually two of them–one long, one knee length) and could wear them with green shoes and a scarf like the Brooks Brothers scarf you used here. I also have a gold/jade bracelet that is seldom worn.
Wow, I love this combinations.. green and navy.. many thanks for the inspiration
I love checking your posts first thing every morning! The color combos and scarves are inspiring. I wore bright green and navy with a scarf today and got a compliment for the first time in quite a while!
I wore green and navy to work yesterday because of this post and found that I really liked the ensemble that I put together. Thanks again for helping me shop in my own closet.
