Trend of the week: Mid-season blues

MAYBE, BABY: Say 'Hello!' to the mid-season blues.
Trend of the week: Mid-season blues


Mid-season calls for mid-tones – the shapeshifters that can double down rain or shine with the help of a Pantone partner.

Take baby blue – a stalwart of spring/summer and an unsung hero of the autumn/winter calendar, especially when paired with huskier hues like maroon, mustard and forest green.

Labels from Giorgio Armani to Balmain have segued its softness into the season ahead – the perfect antidote to a dip in degrees.


? Colour block your favourite baby blue wardrobe staple with a soft neutral and a darker hue for catwalk-worthy kudos. Top tip? Camel and brick (very Marni) or light grey and forest green.

? Colour shy? Use bright shades as thoughtful accents in a shoe, bag or scarf.

? Invest in layering pieces like a polo neck for pairing with slip dresses now or as companions to chunkier knits when the mercury drops.

? This season's chambray denim and blue shirting trend continue well into 2017. We love a rollover!
