50 shades of blue

50 shades of blue

Blue is the colour of Autumn/Winter 2014, according to the fashion labels.

After a month of the fashion show circuit - New York, London, Milan and Paris - it is plain to all that colours are in play for Autumn/Winter 2014.

And blue tops the colour chart, being used in every way - from powder blue to cobalt, from head-to-toe to accents.


The all-blue look was shown by labels as diverse as Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, Tadashi Shoji (centre) and Moschino.

Just think of Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o's pale blue Prada gown and you're on track.

This is an easy way to wear the trend, just be sure to wear contrasting shoes.


Another way to add the blues: Keep it separate.

Louis Vuitton (right) (in its first collection by Nicolas Ghesquiere, the former Balenciaga designer), Issey Miyake and Tod's all showed separates in blue.


If you really don't like the colour, but you do want to be on trend, get blue accessories.

The bag from Anya Hindmarch or the heels from Emporio Armani should do the trick.


Consider wearing a print in blues, if head-to-toe is too much to handle.

Alexander Wang and Emanuel Ungaro keep it subtle, Dries Van Noten offers high contrast and Singapore-born Paris-based designer Andrew Gn does it with big and bold (left).


Blue is not a revolution for men.

Still, you can wear it in unexpected ways.

Perhaps a J.W. Anderson printed suit (left) or a Topman Design chunky sweater?
