How to Wear Blue for Summer Getaways

As we move towards summer, sea-blue hues fall into favour, conjuring up visions of sun-soaked coastlines and long, languid days spent on the beach.  Here, we explore how to wear blue for summer getaways, focusing on printed pieces with a distinctly free-spirited feel.  

 

Bohemian Blues

 

Bohemian prints always have a place in our summer wardrobes and this season’s blue-hued iterations are no exception. Wind-blown maxis are the perfect pieces to transition from beach to bar, while boho blouses worn with white denim and wedges make the must-have ensemble for breezier days on the boulevard.  

 

Summer Stripes

 

Stripes can be relied upon add a little more structure to this summer’s blue-hued styles, taking them seamlessly from the city to sun-drenched destinations. Whether opting a midi skirt or a pair of shorts, the fashion formula is simple: wear with a tucked-in top and statement sliders.

 

Frill Seeker

 

From frills to ruffles, it is the tactile elements that instantly elevate single-colour silhouettes. For poolside allure, a printed blue bikini with ruffled straps makes a sought-after swimwear choice – and we love how the deep blue hue flatters every skintone. When it’s time to seek out the local sights, a ruffled sun dress worn with straw accessories is your holiday go-to.  

 

Tribal Beats

 

Navy doesn’t have to mean nautical. Reinvent the classic colour combination with white tribal prints on dark, inky tones, as seen on this sweeping summer maxi. For something a little more low-key, tuck a printed top into linen shorts, finishing the look with a pair of flat sandals.  

 

Tonal Tiles

 

Taking their inspiration from traditional Moroccan riads, tile-printed pieces were made with faraway places in mind. Take it to the beach with a bold blue bikini, or make your way to rooftop lunches with a tile-print midi, worn with pared-back palette of white and metallic gold.
