AW14 Trend: Blue Notes

Somewhere between blue’s big debut at the shows in February and the onset of Indian summer, it became the new black. From cobalt to cerulean, and periwinkle to navy, a spectrum of modern, wearable blues have been popping up 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. And what’s not to love? It’s cool, fluid and unlike red, makes a statement without being brazen – it’s no wonder it’s dominated this season’s colour palette. Here are three ways to work tone-on-tone blue notes:

For a casual look that’s on the smart side of off-duty, we pair a stylish blue boyfriend tee with tailored trousers. Top with a relaxed navy cocoon cardigan for an elegant touch. In case you haven’t noticed, trainers, are still a super hot footwear trend that we hope that’s here to say. Accent with a chic,  oversized gold watch.

A vest and wide-leg trousers are the perfect combo for after-dark. We love the simple, loose silhouette of this Warehouse double-layer cami paired with these classic navy crepe tailored trousers. Blue stone drop earrings add a dose of glamour, while this gold clutch from J by Jasper Conran (coming soon) enlivens the moody ensemble. Miss KG’s suede cobalt court shoes complete the look.

A strong blue outfit at work conveys a steady, reliable personality (read: we’ll believe and say anything to work this trend). Nevertheless, this grid-pattern dress is a standout choice for the office and stylish enough to make a strong impression at dinner. J by Jasper Conran’s cluster stone necklace adds just the right amount of dazzle and keeps the outfit from being staid. A trapeze style tote bring it bang up-to date and black slingbacks save this look from being too matchy-matchy.

One thing’s for sure, the concept of ‘being blue’ is likely to become a misnomer. Thanks to this sublime autumn/winter trend, you won’t be able to feel anything but elegant and self-assured in these royal and deep-sea shades.
