Bold Blues Fashion Colours for Spring 2008

The trend for blue has been slowly growing. Blue is back on the fashion colour palette and with a vengeance. In particular, manufacturers have worked on spring’s electric blues to produce a wide range of attractive tones. Royal blue is used for fashion parkas and jackets. This year the blue hues have taken off, and even if it is not your favourite colour a blue chambray shirt is a seasonal must-have for Spring Summer 2008.

The D&G bags look rather snazzy too.

Jeans of every variety, colour and style are in a mall near you, just waiting for a merger with your body shape. Beware though of mixing the best washed out pale denims with deeper dark denims. Choose pale or dark denim wear, but don’t mix the dark with light. For best pale effects let your jeans naturally fade by washing them yourself to get that softness only possible in the domestic environment. The memorable blue of the Aegean sea and of Santorini blue is hauntingly beautiful and your wardrobe is sure to hold some blue fashion styles in 2008. Kaftans have become even more popular as beach cover ups and have usurped the sarong as fashionable beach wear. Of course the Kaftan also acts a great relaxed, yet exotic, fashion top to wear over jeans or pants.

Kaftans will be a big summer fashion trend of 2008. Think of them lovingly in the same way you loved your old Boho skirt. Kaftans in all colours and patterns are a great way to wear strong colour, whether maxi, mini or short.

The high street fashion retailer Monsoon has a terrific range of Kaftans for this spring and summer. These turquoise rich blue hues left – and in these New Look patchwork shoes right, all recall Greek island seas and illustrate the spirit of the blues for summer 2008.
