There is no colour combination that evokes summer more than blue and white - we think of summer skies, and the dazzling blue and white plaster houses of Greece, pretty blue and white pottery, and nautically striped deckchairs. With summer just around the corner this colour duo is perfect for a stylish seasonal look.
This summer there is a blue for everyone, from deep navy through to the softest baby blue – pick the shade that appeals the most, and team it with classic white. On a hot summer’s day, there is nothing that looks and feels cooler than a crisp cotton shirt, teamed with three quarter pants, or a breezy summer dress – keep cool when the heat is on.
This combination works with most skin tones, from the palest alabaster, right through to bronzed goddesses. Blue and white is softer than black and white for the summer, and is often more forgiving when put against a slightly more mature skin.
Silver is another accent that will accessorise this timeless combination - a statement necklace or shiny earrings will dazzle against any shade of blue, and the cooler tones are made to complement each other.
Care tip – to keep navy looking as good as the day you bought it, wash your garment inside out, with a colour preserving detergent, and air dry out of direct sunlight.
