If you want to make a strong splash into the sartorial world of blues, look no further than Stine Goya. The Copenhagen label offers a masterclass in cobalt blue through its spring/summer 2023 collection, which includes this faux fur belted jacket made from 100% recycled polyester.
For a more subtle approach, Vogue Scandinavia's selection is Ennui's white gold earrings, dotted with cool blue sapphires for a sea inspired tone. The 8mm hoop can be worn solo or mixed and matched with others from your jewellery rotation.
As the base for a curated blue-hued look, Amendi's wide-leg jeans are Vogue Scandinavia's pick. Crafted from 100% organic cotton for low environmental impact, the brand's sustainable approach extends to all of the details including the recycled polyester zipper and chrome-free leather patch. The versatile 'black stone' wash is achieved with sustainable nano-bubble technology and water-saving lasers.
Take your dalliance with blue to new, unexpected heights with Stine Goya's platform-soled Chelsea boots. Crafted from durable glossy leather, these will serve you well through the transitional months of unpredictable weather, while the colourblock soles offer a perky pop of colour to brighten each day.
To counter the blues of your wardrobe, opt for this ethereal blouse from Finnish brand Teija. It is crafted from 100% opaque silk habotaie, with weightless, flouncy pleats and gathers through the body and with slightly A-line sleeves.
