I love tonal dressing and do it often. To me it’s much easier than colour mixing using contrasting colours. Maybe it depends on how much you enjoy contrast? At the moment I prefer low to medium contrast so I prefer to wear different tones of the same colour, or close colours on the colour wheel, rather than contrasting colours. But I tend to do outfits that layer similar colours, rather than a column of the same colour as shown in some of Angie’s photos. I note that when Angie does a column of colour she still includes lots of contrast (lots of white and light accents), which works well (very well actually!) and really increases the visual impact of the outfit. But it isn’t my style. I like the softness of similar shades. That’s why I like ombré so much.
As far as navy goes you could try searching “navy colour palette”. That might give you some ideas about what variations in blue you could use to put together a tonal outfit from your wardrobe or about what colours you could add to achieve a more satisfying result.
I searched and came up with this one, which appealed to me. It does include some gold for contrast but I would still describe it as medium contrast. Mostly tonal.
I don’t wear a lot of blue but when I do I pair it with other shades of blue, green, teal and black. As per the outfit in finds below.
Your outfits look great BTW!
