This winter make sure you don’t commit S.A.D - sins against dressing – by not wearing the seasons key hue. Whether it electric and bright or dark and rich, Chelsey finds out about how this winter’s fashion is turning to the blues...
The colour blue has always been effortlessly cool in fashion, but is usually most popular during the summer months. But not this year – winter sees the hue burst through the tough economic times that inspired last year’s tones of dark, deep and nature-inspired tones. It is cheerful, uplifting, and features strongly in most designer collections from the likes of Mena, Ketz-ke, Silverdale, Sable & Minx and Doosh.
Sable & Minx uses blue throughout the winter line, with dark navy for chic and cosy merino dresses to silk garments in eclectic patterns punctuated by electric blue. Also right on trend, Doosh has given this great colour to our winter wardrobes in the form of true and sky blues in everything from dresses to knitwear.
Silverdale goes downright nautical, using navy for those who have no love for extreme and absolute colours or as a classic black substitute for refined during the day and elegant in the evening sporty-chic allure. (Trivia time - the name ‘navy blue’ originates from a particular type of blue, very dark, used for the uniforms of the British Royal Navy since 1748 and later adopted by almost all Navies the world over. This is why navy blue is also called “bleu marine”, instantly conjuring up a picture of the sea and summer.)
For their first winter collection ever resort label Mena incorporates a range of blues into their traditionally floral patterns, while Ketz-ke features a nice ice blue sure to set you apart from the crowd.
Even makeup is having a blue crush this season, but use the numerous options available only as a highlight, so you don’t look like you’ve arrived back from the 70’s! Think of a modern twist on the classic black cat eye flick with navy eyeliner or mascara and subtly applying rich dark blue eyeshadow for a smoky sultry look straight off the runway.
There is nothing like blue for a casual but refined winter look. It’s just as chic as black but less demanding: in the day it’s always elegant, in the evening it’s instantly ladylike. It evokes the feeling of peace, cool and calmness, so serenely saunter to the shops and discover your new winter wardrobe or it will be blue without you!
