While solid colors are often the default for monochromatic styles, prints offer a unique way to add depth and individuality. The key to crafting ensembles with patterned pieces is to ensure the colors in the print complement the other shades in your outfit. A floral jacquard knit top featuring subtle navy accents pairs perfectly with a navy pant, while a floral dress can be worn with either navy or pastel blue accessories. The subtly matching shades draw the outfit together, creating a unified look that's effortlessly polished.
Discover a subtle version of blue fashion by exploring the limitless inspiration of accessories. Accents offer an opportunity to play with any element of the trend, from monochromatic and contrasting colors to eye-catching textures and prints. Pair subtle pastel blue heels with a pastel top, or layer a cerulean scarf over a deep navy dress. A delicate sequined clutch or velvet handbag draws together the blue elements of your outfit for a chic, modern style.
While summer blues offer a perfect palette for monochromatic ensembles, they also pair effortlessly with other colors. Wearing blue designs with a neutral foundation highlights the focal piece while lending a contemporary feel to your outfit.
Explore lighter neutrals, like tan and white, for summer daytime wear, and transition to evening by mixing in darker grays and blacks. Your neutral palette can accentuate a primarily blue ensemble or act as the foundation of an outfit to draw attention to a single blue piece.
