Various shades of blue were seen on the Spring/Summer runways this year


With summer almost in full swing here in Australia, it’s time to visit our favourite colour of the season: blue. This season saw many designers showcase variations of the hue on their runways. Instead of playing it safe by using menswear standard colours like navy and prussian blue, the runways were awash with vivid and bright takes on the shade. From cobalt to electric blue to peacock blue, here we’ve selected some of our favourite items this season that bring a dose of summer blue into your wardrobe.
