Into the Blue:
New Neutrals for a Timeless Wardrobe

A neutral-hued wardrobe, featuring timeless looks made modern with novel geometry, unconventional details, and distinct personality, is enhanced by an undercurrent of blue. Vivid, natural blues—ranging from midnight, to navy, to powder—provide a counterpoint to more muted blacks and whites, providing a backdrop for the distinct angles, layers, and textures of each piece. Evocative and profound, blue sets the mood for an infinitely adaptable array of styles.

An air of sophistication echoes throughout these multifaceted looks, and the pieces that comprise them, ensuring that some of the most compelling elements in your closet will also be the most trusted. Accented with a selection of versatile accessories, this hand-picked set of fundamental styles strikes the ultimate balance of personality and practicality.

J.W. Anderson’s slim maxi skirt in seersucker-inspired jersey and a white scoopneck tank from Vince combine to create a statuesque silhouette, embellished simply with a black stretch toggle belt. Layering the wrap skirt at the torso over a pale denim-tone patch pocket shirt creates an inventive, enveloped look. Unbuttoning the shirt—cinching it instead with the toggle belt—over a pair of long-legged navy silk shorts by Christophe Lemaire makes for a relaxed, effortless ensemble, adorned with the luster of a simple silver signet ring.

Rethink the balloon dress as a top over wide-leg silk trousers, forming a cool, expansive monochromatic backdrop for the gleam of a silver ring.
Washed silk gives luminosity to Christophe Lemaire’s long shorts in midnight blue. At right, a long-sleeve wrap top joins its matching floor-length wrapped-waist skirt to make a pristine pairing as layered swathes of parallel lines trace and accentuate the body’s natural form from head to toe.
