Blue: Casual Color That’s So Much More Than Denim

Our color focus for the week is blue, and we wrap up with our favorites for the easy days of Summer. And we're not just talking about jeans – though, yes, a great denim wash will win us over every time. The versatility of blue expands way beyond that. It’s one of those colors that always stays strong, not just as a color trend but also as a staple in our wardrobes. From punchy pastel versions to vibrant shades as beautiful as the Mediterranean Sea, these are picks that will accommodate any happy day.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our work (on Tuesday) or after 5 picks (on Wednesday), check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

Splendid’s easy ombre dress is just right for a casual day of brunching. The contemporary fit has a relaxed shape, with a self-tie belt providing shape to that makes it a great fit for most body types. We often recommend replacing a fabric tie with a leather one – this skinny braided one looks great – but the back loop detail doesn’t make it a style necessity (click through the ‘shop it’ button to see what we mean). The lyocell fabric has beautiful drape and is super soft, but is substantial enough to hold the finishing details on this dress – like the cuff along the sleeve and pleated shoulders – and show off the fine quality.

While Eileen Fisher has a relaxed fit, the broad range of sizes (Petite XXS – Regular XL) has even the smallest and youngest ladies in the office falling in love with this linen tee. The fabric is beautiful, substantial enough to elevate a basic to a more polished look that is still perfectly casual. The shorter length hits at the hip so it can be worn untucked without looking sloppy (layering something underneath, as shown, is optional). It is still long enough to do that off-handed half-tuck, where you tuck just the front of your top in, that we love so much. Besides this beautiful shade of blue, there are a few more colors to choose from through the ‘shop it’ button – you may just want to stock up.

It’s always hard to pass up a Vince tee, and this one is no exception. The elevated quality and modern designs make them worth every penny, in a relaxed fit that will work for your figure – even if it changes from one season to the next. And this color blocking is especially timeless, using navy with black and white, to create a modern look that will go with everything. It can clearly be worn on its own with shorts, yet the jersey fabric and coloring means it can work under a blazer with dark jeans for a casual day at the office, too.

In talking about blue this week, jeans are an obvious choice. And as the weather continues to warm up, these Level 99 chambray pair of wide legs pants are an ideal alternative to a heavier denim. Chambray is basically a version of denim, just being woven in a different way for a lighter weight with more movement. They are just as versatile, can be worn with anything, and are so, so comfortable. The modern fit of these Level 99 pants comes in petite too, and the fit is really great. The mid-rise sits at the waist/slightly below, depending on your torso length, and balances the wide leg perfectly. Wear a simple tank or tee for a relaxing day or add a stylish blouse for a night out. Flat sandals or cute sneakers look just as good as a stylish wedge, so you can really play with these and get a lot of use out of them.

Sanctuary’s casually stylish aesthetic makes them a great resource for a pair of shorts. These navy shorts are an interpretation of your favorite drawstring pants, in a linen fabric that is light and comfortable. With free shipping and returns, you can try these on with confidence. And if your size is already sold out through the 'shop it' button, you can get the same service through Amazon with a Prime account. They look great with your favorite summer tops - a simple tee and a cute pair of white sneakers is an easy choice, as is a linen button down or gauzy blouse with beaded sandals.

Lanston makes stylishly comfortable knits, and they often use this lightweight French terry for their dresses. It’s one of our favorite fabrics because it’s super soft and just thick enough to help keep things looking smooth. It has the lightweight feel of a tee, but none of the cling that a thinner material can sometimes cause in a dress. The racerback style creates beautiful definition for your shoulders and is still bra-friendly with a coordinating bra. The drawstring can be pulled as tight as you like for added comfort, and to ensure the waist hits exactly where it looks best on you. Any casual shoe, sandal, or flip flop works.

Ginghams, plaids and denim are style must-haves this season. This amazing soft top takes care of them all, yet it doesn’t have that trendy feel to it, so everyone can wear it with confidence. The modern fit is easy and the lyocell fabric makes for a beautiful drape. The shirttail hem can be tucked in to your favorite casual pants or shorts, but looks just as good untucked or just partially tucked in the front since it has an interesting pleat detail in the back (click through the ‘shop it’ button to check it out). The cuffed sleeve is one of our favorite details on this top, giving the short sleeve a stylish finish that still flatters your arms.

Splendid’s semi-sheer linen sweater is the right way to layer up on a cooler Summer evening. Over a simple tank, it has that effortless beachy feel that makes you feel like you’re on vacation, in a contemporary fit that is loose and easy (XS – XL). The solid white back creates a clean finish that works perfectly with jeans, shorts, linen drawstring pants, or a great pair of joggers.

Madewell, J.Crew’s sister company, gets better and better, creating easy casual styles in a modern fit that works for any age. And in XXS-XL, this split neck linen tank top looks good on most everyone. The dusty blue works wonderfully with the nubby texture, and is neutral enough to pair with color or your favorite jean shorts. The split neckline flatters without revealing, so you don’t have to worry about it slipping down too far if you are doing chores or cheering the kids on at a game.

Banana Republic’s fedora style hat has a chambray printed band that just makes it. Sure a hat is practical in the sunshine, and this one is equally good-looking. It’s such a fun and stylish finish to any breezy summertime look – whether you’re headed to the beach or a day of window-shopping. The rim isn’t too broad, so it really works on most face shapes.

Soludos - Wren x Soludos Batik Medallion Platform Espadrilles
With the return of the espadrille, comes the inevitable reminder that they don’t provide much support – but they are super comfortable. This pair from Soludos – one of our favorite espadrille manufacturers – doubled up the jute bottom for a subtle platform style that is not only a little more structured, but holds a little more shape to keep them looking good longer. The blue batik pattern is crisp with denim, pops of color, or white, so you’ll reach for them all Summer long. Note: They are made in whole sizes only, so we suggest sizing up if you are between sizes.
