How to Style a Blue Top

February 13, 2017

I really love the color blue. If you asked me my favorite color, I would probably say blue. Mainly because black, white, grey, and tan don’t really seem like acceptable answers. Ha! But…I often shy away from buying blue tops. It’s not because I don’t love the color or think it is flattering. It’s because I am never really sure how to style a blue top. Does anyone else have this dilemma?

That leads me to the topic of today’s post: how to style a blue top. Banana Republic sent me this gorgeous blue sweaterΒ and the prettiest taupe/blush colored tote. They always have the best, classic pieces.Β It is really my go-to store when I need a chic piece to move my wardrobe from one season to the next or from one level to the next. The tailoring and quality are always on point. The sweater has the prettiest scalloped neck and is a great weight for spring. It gave me all the feels, and I basically needed to wear it as soon as possible. I came up with several styling options and even took to Instagram for your feedback (thank you!).

My main tip on how to style a blue top is to pick a contrasting color on bottom. Whether you pick a skirt or pants, select a non-blue color. The options I considered were a blush midi skirt or white jeans. I think I will wear the blush skirt to work soon, but since I was wearing this on a casual day, I oped for jeans. White trousers would be gorgeous. Black works just as well as I recently didΒ here. A printed bottom or skirt would also be great. I also think you can wear a blue top with denim. Just pick a pair that isn’t quite the same shade like I did here.

If you are looking for more inspiration, clearly I have a thing for blue tops with white jeans as evidenced by previous posts here, here, and here.

  • I’m loving this blue shade on you, girlie, and the way you’ve styled it here is perfection, I love it paired with the white jeans and camel accents. Banana Republic is one of my favorite stores, too. The quality is absolutely amazing and they always have a nice range of classic and trendy pieces. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!
