Inspiration on how to wear blue on blue this season
Is your favourite colour blue? If you own several items of clothing in this colour, but they’re all varying shades (baby blue, navy blue, denim blue, washed-out blue, blue-black), you might have thought to yourself “no way will any of these look good together”. Well, it’s quite possible to match shades of blue, you just have to keep in mind a few things.
- Keep it simple: You can pair a lighter shade of blue with a darker shade of blue if you keep things simple. Don’t create optical illusions with sophisticated prints – stick with block colours. A pair of dark denim jeans can look very good with a light blue blouse. Similarly, a pair of washed-out denim jeans can look good with a dark blue blouse.
- Play around with different fabrics: Making sure that each of the pieces have different textures will create more of a distinction between the two shades. For example, pairing a denim skirt with a pastel blue silk blouse.
- Accessorise: It’s fairly easy to tote around a blue bag or strut around in a pair of blue heels when your outfit is also blue – but if blue is not an option, or if you want to tone the ensemble down a bit, stick to neutral accessories. Accessories in nudes and blacks and whites can highlight your outfit.
