You're About to Be Obsessed With This Colorful Trend

If red was the color of fall, blue is that of summer. We’re so totally obsessed with the hue that we’re wearing it from head to toe—and no one can stop us. A less vibrant tone than the monochromatic looks of previous seasons, it’s a more accessible take on the full-colored outfits that even the most stylish of girls might have been wary to try before now. We’re dressing in navy instead of black, mixing tones for an allover blue look with a little added dimension, and fully immersing ourselves in the powder blues and dusty gray hues that make summer the season that it is. Not to mention that we’re loving blue looks for work, date night, and weekend brunch plans.

Color it might be (technically), an all-blue outfit is understated enough to allow you to play with textures and materials. The world is your oyster. Mix denim with silk, tweed and cotton, and chiffon and cashmere. We quite literally cannot stop trying new and interesting ways to wear blue and don’t see our new style love going anywhere anytime soon.

From skirts to suiting to dresses and jean shorts, here are the all-blue outfits we can’t wait to try this summer.

Dress up blue jean shorts with the addition of a navy blazer. It’s the youthful take on your parents’ preppy ensembles.

Try a matching top and pants. Whether pajama-style silk or a crisper cotton, it’s tailored and totally chic in head-to-toe blue.

Mix tones of blue with elegant midi skirts and a combination of blouses and sweaters. Add a little pop of red here and there with shoes or accessories.

Suiting has never looked better than it does in blue. Try a pastel tone in an oversize shape for a modern take on the tailored trend.

Grab a one-and-done dress that mixes blue tones all on its own. Keep your accessories bright white for summer for a nice contrast to the bold color.

If you’re seeking a more relaxed fit, consider a suit to elevate the slouchy feel.

Mixing prints is worlds easier when you’re sticking to one classic color like blue. Go all-out when it comes to your silhouette as well, as the hue almost acts as a neutral.

When opting for a suit in this bright tone of blue, ground your look with a T-shirt in a bright white tone.

Don’t shy away from blue when seeking a topper for your denim. Go for a slightly brighter tone in a sporty sweatshirt shape.

Turn your workwear look into a more after-hours outfit by opting for a suit in silk or satin. Consider going without a shirt, instead choosing to button up the jacket and reveal a more skin-baring neckline.

Meet the sophisticated take on the three-piece suit. With a bold look like a crop top, high-waisted pants, and a blazer on top, it’s just the time to try out a cobalt tone.

In transitional weather, layering is a must. Go for varying lengths in your silhouette as well as slightly differing tones of blue to keep everyone on their toes.

There’s nothing like a dress that’s already wrapped, gathered, or cinched before you even put it on. Especially one that’s made of a patchwork blue fabric that takes shirting to the next level.

Don’t forget about your accessories when opting for head-to-toe color. Grab a bag and shoes in a similar tone, though slightly varying color, to add that pop that isn’t too jarring.

With jeans as your base, you can do anything. Reach for a statement top in a differing shade of blue from your denim for an effortless outfit that will wow.

Keep it classic—with a twist. Instead of an oxford button-down, go one-shoulder or similar and pair it with your favorite pair of skinny jeans and block heels.

Sometimes you just want to keep it classic with a gorgeously tailored suit. Consider a slightly brighter shade of blue instead of your go-to navy or black this summer.

With a printed silk skirt in a bright shade of blue, try a slim-fit navy top that will take you from work to cocktails afterward.

A silk top and high-waisted trousers are almost as effortless as a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. Style them with heels for work and sneakers on the weekend.
