There is something about summer and wearing color that go hand-in-hand – perhaps it is the warmer temperatures or notions of sunshine, clear skies or summer vacation that puts us in a positive mood. For this season’s summer color, we are taking inspiration from the deep blues and picked out our top picks for ‘day in, day out’ dresses in beautiful royal blue.
Well-known as a symbol of wisdom and (as the name implies) royalty, for a wonderful dash of color to your summer wardrobe that looks intellectual and modest in and out of the office, royal blue is the perfect go-to. For a versatile and classic short-sleeved style, we recommend a Royal Blue Gather Dress – easy to style for work or days off!
Our stylist recommends match with a clean white jacket for a refreshing contrast at work, or pair with a black cardigan for a modest style.
For a style that calls forth the true summer atmosphere, then wearing a print can do you no wrong. Choose a nature-inspired print that is both beautiful and refreshing to look at and wear, like our recommended royal blue print this season: the Blue Leaf series. With a stunning combination of rich blues and sharp whites to bring a breath of fresh air into the room, it is amazing to wear for the office, to celebrate a special occasion or at a stay at the resort this season.
Pair with a bright red cardigan for an extra dose of vibrant color, or for an even more refreshing business style, wear with a sky blue jacket. The color combination makes it surprisingly easy to style!
We all love the touch of knit in the colder seasons, but it is also possible to wear it comfortably in the warmer seasons too! For an elevated style that is sure to impress, we recommend our gorgeous Royal Blue Tacking Dress to stun at any special occasion. Designed with a square neckline to frame the face and neck and a peplum flare to add a feminine touch. Made from breathable, highly stretchy knit made in Kanazawa, and machine-washable to boot, it is an easy, low-maintenance dress that you can wear to work and make a lasting impression at any occasion.
For an extra layer of composed comfort in style, pair with a muted gray knit jacket, or wear on its own with pearls and a clutch for a sophisticated look, perfect for a night out.
