Blue is THE colour for the new season, whether it’s in the form of various denim incarnations, pastel-hued wardrobe staples or cobalt accessories. High street hero M&S have jumped on the bandwagon with their blue-themed edit, allowing us mere mortals to get a slice of the shade that designers from Chloé and Gucci to Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney have been going mad for.
Combining the luxurious nonchalance of the seventies with a modern utilitarian spin, the pieces encompass all the major silhouettes for S/S – with cool jumpsuits, chic culottes, kimono-shaped cover-ups and tunic dresses in a rainbow of blues from navy to cobalt, cornflower to indigo.
We’ve already earmarked the jacquard-print jacket for transitional dressing, the denim dungarees for downtime and the pleated lace skirt to make a statement. Starting from £17.50, there’s no more thrifty way to embrace the blues.
