It’s fair to say almost every color has had its day. However, things seem to have settled down and gone back to basics, with blue garments. In fact, few days ago we talked about incorporating a blue denim piece into your wardrobe, unlike today which is about reinventing another way to wear royal blue shade for a casual style. This summer, embrace colors of a more vibrant nature such as the electric royal blue that helps to breathe life into any often monotonous classic or formal wardrobes. It means you’re allowed to inject this pop tone into your style, which is instantly reinvigorating your look. This doesn’t mean you need to reject other colors though, but this humble blue is one of the most versatile ones you can wear.
How to balance between statement and casual smart look ? Well, the blue color pop will add an instant relaxed feel to your outfit. For a more adaptable but still an edgy casual look, opt for a feminine touch at the top such as the Oroblù lace bustier I’m wearing and play with textures, patterns or fabrics such as trying a leather bra top, a long sleeve lace up top, a silk crop top, the choice is endless. If a relaxed aesthetic is what you are hoping to achieve, team your royal blue top with a simple bottom such as a tight loose pant in the same tone or try on a softer shade. Therefore, whites will suit all blue shades especially that electric blue color, but you can also experiment your royal blue piece with brighter or color block accessories to add dimension to your outfit. Maintain an understated look with sneakers, particularly in classic colors to contrast with your blue outfit in a subtle, but effective way.
Alternatively, if you want to make more of a statement, you can try mixing up key pieces to create an edgy outfit -anything goes, bold shades and even patterns are fair game! You hear it, don’t be afraid to mix up patterns, styles and textures to express aspects of your personality.To create your own outfit, try pairing your new royal blue shift dress or skirt with an unstructured blazer when heading for a night on the town, switching for a turtle neck and high waisted royal blue trouser combination for lunch with friends. Finally, in terms of color, you can’t go wrong with this timeless blue, especially as it is still underused for outerwear in comparison to other neutrals. Why not look to make more of a statement this summer ? Be just bold.
