The spring/summer 2018 runways were filled with a riot of colour, but one hue in particular stood out: blue. From bold shades and gorgeous trims to accessories that’ll elevate any look, here are our favourite ways to wear blue this season.
1 Updated pinstripes
Usually found dominating the wardrobes of business professionals, the classic blue pinstripe is now making waves in the fashion world too. Go for thicker stripes for an updated look and opt for oversized shirts and dresses for an androgynous aesthetic.
2 Flower power
From irises to hydrangeas, draw your outfit inspiration from the beautiful flowers in bloom this season! Depending on your style, you can make a bold statement with dramatic florals or go romantic with dainty daisies.
3 Denim is the new denim
Denim has been elevated from a comfortable convenience buy to a fashion statement. Look for structured pieces with great tailoring and you’ll be able to take your denim from casual streetwear all the way to the red carpet.
4 Midnight magic
The elegance and allure of deep navy and royal blue tick all the eveningwear boxes. If you want to give your all-black wardrobe a break, try these stunning, understated colours for a night out on the town.
