When it comes to wearing blue this season, it’s all about balance.

Blues are set to dominate in menswear this season, creating a seamless transition from warm summer days to crisp autumn nights. From classic navy, to striking cobalt, to deep indigos, the new palette will offer a hue for every occasion.

While the colour has long been a menswear season staple, this year is all about pushing the colour to new heights, experimenting with tones and adding depth to your look with rich, contrasting textures.

Keep reading for three ways to get on the blue bandwagon this winter.

Embrace the versatility of a classic blue denim jacket by paring it back with contrasting textures – soft wools and cotton shirts make great options for brisk autumn days. For colder conditions, embrace this season’s quilted trend, as seen on the international runways of Paris and New York, with statement blue outerwear pieces by the likes of North Face

For those days where one statement piece just isn’t enough, you can always rock blue on blue. Nothing says confidence like a complete tonal takeover, as seen on the runways at NY Fashion Week. To try out the look, start with a pair of classic dark indigo jeans, teamed with tailored button down shirt and casual low-top sneakers.


IN THE NAVY

We can’t talk about blue without mentioning navy. Restrained, sophisticated, and as timeless as colours come, this shade can do no wrong. Make the most of navy offerings this season with statement knitwear – patterned or plain – and classic collared shirts.
