1. Classic Blue Outfits with Baby Blue Layer Clothes
Of course you can wear classic blue only, such as a classic blue jeans and an upper outfit in the same blue. However, if you want to have some fun and create a more chic look, we suggest you try to pair classic blue with baby blue which is a little unexpected but harmonious color pairing. Vivid baby blue makes calm classic blue look more chic and vibrant, these two colors are the perfect complement to each other.
We highly suggest you try to pairing a baby blue shirt underneath a classic blue suit for a totally unexpected and gorgeous look this season or in cooler months, trust us, you will find a new world of possibilities!
2. Classic Blue Outfits and Brown Bags
Many people are big fans of blue and red. However, when it comes to classic blue which is a little dark, it’s difficult for most people to handle this color pairing in daily life. By contrast, we suggest classic blue and brown which is a safer choice and easier to try.
Classic blue is elegant and peaceful in its simplicity, as well as brown. What’s better, classic blue can break the sense of heaviness which brought by brown and make brown looks younger.
If you are not confident of wearing brown outfits or you think brown outfits are difficult to make a statement for people in dark complexion, we suggest you try to pair classic blue outfits with a brown bag which is a popular choice among street stars. You can also go for a caramel bag which will look brighter. Remember that, accessories are always the perfect way to try out a new color pairing.
3. Classic Blue Outfits and White Shoes
White is an all-purpose color without a doubt. Under normal condition, if you don’t know which color to pair with another color, going for white can be a smart choice. When white meets classic blue, everything becomes so fresh and clean! However, a large area of white and classic blue is a little ordinary among street stars and lacks of fashion sense.
We suggest you change your mind and reduce white of your look, such as change to some patterns of white and classic blue checks(such as a skirt or coat), or only wear a pair of white shoes to match your classic blue outfits. White sneakers can make people look younger and more vibrant, while a pair of white boots in cooler months can make you look chic and keep you warm at the same time.
