The Solution to Transitional Dressing: Navy Pants

The Solution to Transitional Dressing: Navy Pants

With spring just around the corner, comes the perennial question: “How do I seamlessly transition my winter wardrobe to spring?”. To that, we present you a two-word solution: Navy Pants. While pants are a given with the unpredictable weather of March and April, the colour navy may have come as a surprise. We’re here to tell you that it’s the secret to dressing for this in-between season.

If you’re a capsule wardrobe owner (us too), you likely donned all black outfits this winter. Although the ebony hue is endlessly versatile and a staple for any minimalist, it can be too dark and sombre for the brighter, airy months of spring. Cue in navy. Sister to black in depth, navy's blue undertones add a freshness that almost anticipates the colourful blooms ahead.

The Meaning of Navy

In addition to being a dynamic way to ease the transition of winter to spring dressing, navy also does a lot of heavy lifting in its symbolism. Representing power, trust, wisdom and sophistication, the colour’s elegance (literally) speaks for itself, making it a must-have addition to your closet.

An Everyday Staple

While cheetah print is currently touted as a new spring neutral, we agree to disagree. Unlike the bold animal pattern, navy enhances the vibrancy of other colours, plays well with different textures, and adds a certain je ne sais quoi. Navy in pants? Well, that’s the ultimate French girl chic.  

Tips on Styling Navy Pants

If you are still not entirely convinced that navy pants are an elegant, timeless and versatile essential that will take your closet into the new season, these next 4 tips will give you the inspiration to try it out.

1. Moving on from Black

Model wears the Unblazer in Black, the Effortless Boatneck Top in Warm White, and the Wanderer Pant in Navy.

Listen, we get it. black has been the dark tone in your wardrobe all winter long so naturally it’s hard to let go. We’re here to say, you don’t have to. Black and navy compliment each other like PB and J so pair your tried and true black blazer with some navy trousers. To keep the outfit from being too heavy, lighten its visual weight with a white layer underneath. This look is refined enough for the office but once the blazer comes off after hours, it will take you right to patio season.

2. Grey All the Way

Model wears the the Luxe ShapeKnit Coatigan in Light Heathered Grey, the Scoop Neck T-Shirt in Olive and the Wanderer Pant in Navy.

Another way to smooth your transition to navy pants is to play with grey. Though grey like navy is a cool tone, there’s something quite crisp about the colour that lends itself well to matching with the deep blue. The slate hue of the Coatigan amplifies the richness of the navy Wanderer Pant, allowing it to subtly stand out while maintaining its elegance. 

3. Keep it in the Family

Model wears the Voyager Crewneck in Sapphire and the Dressy Sweatpants in Navy.

When in doubt, go tonal. Lean into the blue of the navy bottoms with a different shade of the hue on top. Although this is a simple ensemble of just a crewneck and pants, the monochromatic styling elevates both these casual pieces. Effortlessly pulled together, this will bring you from running errands to hosting game nights.

4. Are you Red-y for It?

Model wears the BeyondSoft Scuba Jacket Dress in Saffron, the Comfy Button, the Cloud Jersey Button Up in White, and the Dressy Lounge Pant in Navy.

Unlike blue jeans which can be too casual, or black trousers which can be too formal, navy trousers are that perfect in-between. This makes them an ideal canvas for a pop of colour and the best backdrop to experiment with patterns. If you wanted to test out winter’s colour of the season, pair your maroon scarf, burgundy sweater or wink wink saffron BeyondSoft Jacket Dress with navy bottoms. The midnight blue enhances the pigmentation of the red while simultaneously pulling it in to not overwhelm the whole outfit.
