This summer is all about the cool blue palette. Jeans are an obvious way to play to the trend, but it’s more chic to give it a fun twist by wearing it in more unexpected ways. Here are some fun ways to embrace the shade:

Chambray ShirtdressChambray Shirtdress

Chambray is denim’s lightweight cousin, it’s perfect for the heat of warming weather. For summer, try a light blue chambray for a button front shirtdress. It’s incredibly versatile; take it to BBQs with flip-flops or bridal showers with wedges.

Boyfriend Button UpBoyfriend Button Up

Boyfriend button ups have become summer’s new beach cover up. In a striped classic blue shirting fabric, it even complements the waters crashing blue waves. Pair it with crisp white twill shorts to go straight out after a day on the sand.

Shrunken BlazerShrunken Blazer

Bring deep royal blue into summer with a sleek shrunken blazer. It upgrades a simple T and cuffed trousers into a look. Roll the sleeves to show off layered bracelets and statement watches. Top it off with a set of printed flats and a pearl necklace to bring it up another notch.

Pencil SkirtPencil Skirt

Pencil skirts are perennially chic. In a saturated blue twill, the staple gets brought even more into right now. Pair it with a printed blouse, cardigan, and minimalist heels to bring the look to the office.

Pleated Midi SkirtPleated Midi Skirt

Midis are this summer’s “it” skirt. To make the breezy piece even more summer-ready, try it in a cool blue linen. Pleats give added texture and volume without added weight, and allows for hidden pockets (always a win). A navy shade can also be paired with a cotton long sleeve and scarf to bring it into fall.
