Pop of Blue Accents SS15

Black and beige are the classic staple colors for sure, but I have always considered blue to be one of the top candidates to complement the staples. Blue, being the color of denim has a natural home in the staple closet and has always showed up in one tone or another on the runway.

Spring/Summer 2015 is no exception, and this season’s shades of blue range from almost turquoise (scuba blue) to beautifully saturated “classic blue” which surprisingly has made it feel updated and fun again (classic blue has a tendency to appear in a marine setting which I think has gone and come back one time too many). This inspires lovely new combos of blue where the shades can be mixed and matched in an endless number of trendy combos as well as worn as a pop accent on shoes or handbags.

Below we’ve collected a number of examples where these shades of blue can be found on the runway and on the high street. As you can see it pairs beautifully with darker shades of blue, classic white summer pieces, light gray and even matt deep red lip tones. So dont be afraid to pick it up in your makeup!

I’ll wear blue as a splash of color with a clutch, or in a funky t-shirt print with some black pants or jeans. I’m also keen to see if I can find a summer sandal with a dusty blue contrast color. I’ll keep you posted!

Long, flowing lace skirts and sheer, second skin like dresses roamed the runways around the world for fall/winter 2014. Although most of them seem more fit for the red carpet or a photo shoot, there’s no reason not get inspired by the vintage silhouettes,  romantic textures and colors. Fall/Winter 2014 brings earthy glamour and jewel tones as well as edgy patterns and soft romantic movement. We find this one of the greatest trends for fall and have put together a few suggestions on how you can take it to the streets.
