Blue is the way to go as we played up with the
Pantone’s Colour Of The Year. Whether for workwear,
date nights or casual wear — there’s always a
fun reason to wear this trendy hue!


More is more

Double up on the neutrals up to and pair bright blue Bermuda shorts over jeans. Tie everything together with strappy heels and lace ups.

Denim daring

You can never go wrong with full denim but make it phresh with a lightweight hoodie and a pair of kicks. Sling on a nylon fanny pack to bag style points.

CYA(N) Later

Shine like a champ in the most lustrous metallic button down you own. Make it pop with a sheer striped long-sleeved top worn under and flaunt your bling.

Weeknight Dates

Mean business with a crisp white shirt, and throw on a Classic Blue dressy top over it and you’re desk-to-date ready by 6pm.

Blue Your Mind

Push boundaries with a plunging neckline but make it SFW with a collared shirt inside. Go chonky with accessories to elevate the look.

Spo(r)t On

Athleisure is chic when a cropped denim jacket goes over a mesh top. Get comfy with your fave gym pants.

The Cobalt Elixir

Wednesday Addams would love something like this. Try it by dressing a frilly frock down with a fun polka dots top underneath.
