Into the blue

07 October 2013

This season we’re all for adding a pop of colour into our AW wardrobes and blue is just the colour to do that. From runway to the red carpet, hints of the shade are everywhere and the deeper the better.  This trend is super easy to transfer to your everyday look, opt for bright oversized coats and boldly coloured skinny jeans for a new twist on the winter blues.

DKNY led the way at New York fashion week featuring a full cobalt blue trouser suit paired with bright orange suede boot heels, a killer combo. A similar look was seen on Valentino’s runway with a stunning strapless jumpsuit complete with matching clutch and pumps. Other designers such as Chanel teased with smaller injections of colour. We love the fluffy trapper hats featured on a number of the models imitating hair, a fun take on the trend.

The colour has rubbed off on a whole host of celebs who have been spotted not only on the red carpet, but on the streets too, proving the versatility of the trend. Fearne Cotton is a fan of royal blue outerwear while Girls star Zosia Mamet sports a similar shade in the form of a silk blouse.  Zoe Hardman’s tailored blazer is the perfect finishing touch to an ultra-chic monochrome outfit and model Coco Rocha’s navy blue cut out dress creates a sophisticated and mysterious look, perfect for any important events and occasions.
