This season’s colour palette has been dominated by blue like never before. From Periwinkle to White Smoke and Flint Blue to Dusk, modern and wearable blues were seen in every sartorial form. Although it’s not a hue that’s ever really out of style, this season’s statement-making head-to-toe blue looks are uniquely revolutionary. It’s cool, fluid and (unlike red) makes a statement without being brazen – it’s no wonder blue has become the new black.
With this new-season palette, opt for a tonal look by working in different shades of blue into your outfit. If you’re unsure about trying this head-to-toe look or are more of a neutrals lover, just work this bold trend in with smaller proportions by introducing it through accessories, such as a blue tote or court shoes. Wearing bright colours this winter is all about embracing and transitioning your summer shades to make them work for you.
Blue was seen all over the catwalk for autumn/winter ’14, particularly at Roksanda Ilincic, Richard Nicoll, as well as interesting combinations of various shades of blue with navy at Stella McCartney. Whether you go head-to-toe in a catwalk-esque blue look or decide to colour-block with black for a sharp, modern adaptation, we have plenty of options for you to channel the trend.
