The Amalfi Coast Royal Blue Blazer
Not Your Staid Old Navy Blazer.
If you look up navy blue you’ll find it defined asa dark shade of blue.
By contrast, royal blue will turn up as a deep, vivid shade of blue.
It’s the vivid that changes the game isn’t it?
Even the word navy, despite its distinction as a branch of military, sounds less attractive than royal. Royal is rich, opulent and shiny. Navy is, well, navy. Don’t get me wrong; it has its place. But this is not a navy blazer.
I found this on the Amalfi Coast years ago; wore it to a few weddings in a few different colors. This color, a deep and vivid shade of blue, always delivered. Paired with a pair of white pants, you might just take the story in an entirely different direction. Even ol’ navy would salute you.
