Grey, black, white, it's easy to get stuck in the cycle of these tones because they go with pretty much everything. This doesn't mean you need to reject other colours though, and the humble blue is one of the most versatile ones you can wear. I mean look at how much goes with blue jeans.

Read on to find out how to incorporate this colour into your wardrobe, and see how it'll fit it into any style you're going for.

Casual Wear

Denim is one of the most casual ways to wear blue, and adds an instant relaxed feel to your outfit. You can go for simple jeans in a light tone, or try a denim shirt or jacket. It's best to keep to one piece so the look doesn't seem too overloaded, unless you're willing to try out the double denim look.

Try pairing a basic pair of joggers with a white t-shirt and light denim jacket, for a effortless but stylish look.

Smart Casual

There are of course other ways to add blue to your outfit other than wearing denim. For a smart casual look you can try mixing up key pieces to create a relaxed but uniformed outfit. If you're styling an item that seems more casual, like a jumper, just make sure it's well fitted and that there's minimal or subtle pattern.

With formal wear you have the choice to go minimal or bold with the colour blue. You can try out a full navy suit for a sophisticated over all look, or lighten up a dark suit with a pale blue shirt.
