I'm not the one to make sweeping statements, especially when it comes to fashion, but I have never met a man who doesn't like blue. I don't entirely understand the fixation - maybe it's a gender marketing thing or maybe it's a universally flattering colour. From corporate offices to the gym, blue is the new black and that works just as well because black is boring. As a blanket term, blue spans across the shade card and covers light versions likes powder blue to deep inky tones. Forget 50 shades of grey, this colour should have you covered all year round. Here are the best blue pieces to include in your wardrobe now that they are on sale. Scroll down and add these to your cart now.
Jack & Jones Navy Cotton Full Sleeves Shirt
A blue dress shirt is a workwear staple, but a deeper toned textured shirt like this one is for when you're hitting the party circuit in the evening. It's slim cut and flattering enough to be paired with beige chinos and a pair of slick shoes.
Levi's Navy Mandarin Shirt
Store racks are flooded with indigo like Mumbai's streets are in the rains; and this colour obviously warrants inclusion in your closet ASAP. This mandarin collar shirt has all the true makings of a classic - it is minimal, sleek and will last you for seasons to come.
Levis Blue Regular Fit Short Sleeves T-shirt
If you're not the one to be swayed by the fickle winds of fashion trends then this classic cerulean blue T-shirt is made for you. Made from the softest cotton, it's basic design and vintage lettering is timeless. I'm sure James Dean would approve.
Mufti Blue Textured Shirt
Instead of a run-of-the-mill chambray shirt, a textured version like the one above is a great addition to your closet, especially if you want to try pulling off the denim-on-denim trend. The contrast between the shirt and your favourite pair of jeans has a definite cool vibe.
Mufti Light Blue Solid Jeans
Denim trends may come and go but a pair of light blue jeans is forever. Like good wine, cheese and George Clooney, it only gets better with age, so go ahead and buy another pair.
Nuon Men by Westside Indigo Solid T-shirt
Henley shirts are a good compromise when you don't know how to do Friday dressing. This one is slick enough to pass off as office appropriate but has the whole cool blue thing going for it that makes it stand out in the crowd.
Nuon by Westside Blue Slim Fit Shirt
Another micro trend that cropped up everywhere this season was patchwork; a tricky trend to pull off if you are not a millennial. This adult version in chambray however is your ticket to being on trend - it is subtle, well-fitting but packs a punch enough to be on an Instagram #OOTD post.
Nuon by Westside Navy Slim Fit Shorts
Never thought I'd say this about a pair of shorts but gentlemen, this is a statement piece. The navy colour goes with all your T-shirts and the quirky print will have you thinking of an endless summer.
Westsport by Westside Indigo Slim Fit Polo T-Shirt
Can a man truly ever have enough Polo t-shirts? Add this one to your cart while you ponder that question.
Jack & Jones Dark Blue Printed Slim Fit T-Shirt
This t-shirt is a classic example of how the dark side doesn't always come dressed in black. Add it to your closet and show your allegiance with Darth Vader.
