Princess Beatrice Makes Mixing Black And Navy Look Easy (PHOTOS)

Ah, navy and black -- it's one of the most challenging color combos in our closets, yet the most rewarding when we pull it off right.

And leave it to Princess Beatrice to make it look easy. The British royal ditched her conservative black dresses for a trendy nighttime outfit on Thursday for the Reuben Foundation Dinner, posing for photographers in a velvety blue top with an embellished collar, a black and blue checked skirt, black tights and black heels.

We shouldn't be surprised anymore, given that the 25-year-old princess has proven her style prowess since that memorable misstep at the Royal Wedding. She loves a good print, can pull off a leather jacket and has been dabbling with the bold accessories.

In other words, she's no Duchess of Cambridge. Check out Bea in her adorable going-out look -- we might just be copying it this weekend.
