From deep navy to bright cobalt to pale sky, there’s a shade of blue for everyone this season. While Burberry and Gucci dipped their toes in the trend, adding just a splash of the color to their ensembles, Calvin Klein and Dior took the plunge, offering up monochromatic, head-to-toe suits in cool, vibrant hues. With the sun back in full force, reconsider blue as a sleeker, more striking alternative to black. But remember, when describing that stylish new blazer, be precise: In the words of the venerable Miranda Priestly, “It’s not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean.”
