When it comes to color palettes, it’s pretty hard to beat blue and white. It can be sporty, it can be nautical, it can be preppy, it can be chic, it can be just about anything you want it to be. Whether you’re swapping out throw pillows or giving your closet a spring update, chances are you could use a little more blue and white in your life.
Go full nautical with a perfectly striped navy-and-white tee, whether it’s Everlane’s boxy cut short-sleeve, a skinnier long-sleeve stripe from J.McLaughlin, or AYR’s signature French Fry with a light blue.
A striped shirt adds instant elegance to any outfit, and this Veronica Beard one also comes with a frilled collar. Alex Mill’s shirt comes with a scalloped collar and sleeves for a femme spin on things. If you’re feeling more a floral vibe, this & Other Stories shirt or this Intermix shirt will soften any outfit.
Of course, you can always throw on your regular favorite pair of jeans. These Mother jeans with an extra-wide hem or these high-waisted flares from Paige denim bring a little bit of drama, but not too much for everyday.
A navy pant or chino can feel a little more dressed up than jeans, and I love the crisp cut of these Maeve Pants. They have a certain French girl flair. And of course, when in doubt, you can always rely on the Frank & Eileen Wicklow Chino. But in case you want to switch some things up, why not go for a printed pair of jeans in a navy-and-white floral?
A weekender always looks more chic than a roller bag, and if you have any road trips on the horizon, toss all your things into Alex Mill’s The Perfect Weekend tote in a deep navy. Have you been hitting the courts lately? How about a monogrammed navy bag with white piping to pop your racket into? For a spring-y tote you can wear all summer long, this Pamela Munson tote comes with baby blue-and-white gingham detailing.
