There’s no doubt about it, the go to colour for men is blue. Why? because it’s easy to wear and goes with most things and makes life easier. From dark blue jeans to a classic, navy sports jacket, we explore how you can wear navy successfully.
How to do blue
One of the most important aspects to consider when wearing all navy/blue is to contrast textures. For example pairing mid blue jeans, with a navy, flannel sports jacket; adding rough with the smooth looks more thought out. Texture in clothing looks more chic and elegant and always opt for the best fabrics or navy can look dull.
A dark blue pair of jeans are an ideal way to look smart while still looking and feeling a little less formal. Our exclusive, lightweight jeans are available in three shades of blue and look great with a variety of shirts, with or without a sports jacket. Ideal for your smart/casual looks or a less formal meeting.
A chambray shirt is the perfect shirt for those wishing to look a little more casual. Our denim chambray shirt works perfectly with our smart, lightweight jean range, with or without a classic sports jacket. You could choose a checked or plain jacket for this look.
Why blue is so flattering for you
Navy is a better option than black. The colour black tends to suck the life out of your skin tone thereby flattening it and making you look older. Where navy/blue does quite the opposite and warms up most skin tones.
If you’re paler you may want to opt for a navy with a little more vibrancy to it to lift the skin tone. If you’re tanned or more olive skin then you can go to the darkest navy.
Caring for your blues
Clothing doesn’t look especially great when they fade. Navy does need a little more care. For example, you may want to:
- Turn your clothing inside out when you was them
- Take your clothing to the dry cleaners if the fabric is delicate
- Don't over wear your items and have enough so that you can put them into rotation easily
