I like wearing black and blue together. I also like wearing black and brown. I think as long as there is enough of a separation between the color and the non-color, it works.
For example, I wouldn’t wear a midnight blue with black as it could look like I just couldn’t tell the difference between the two. But a navy blue, a royal blue or a cobalt all look great with black because they look like a deliberate pairing as opposed to looking like I got dressed in the dark. And I definitely prefer to stick with mid-tone blues when pairing black and blue. Just as going too dark with the blue can look off, so can going too light; black with baby blue can be too jarring and looks less deliberate.
As for the leopard, well, leopard goes with everything. It’s a neutral, dontcha know.
