Men’s style tips: how to wear ocean blue

Blog, Men’s Style Tips, News • 04 March 2024

Cool, calming, contemporary, Ocean is ready to be your new favourite blue. This attractive bluey green is all about subtle sophistication – beautifully vivid but not overpowering. Think of it as poppy turquoise’s more world, slightly wealthier cousin. Ocean always looks modern while remaining timeless. Read on to find out how to incorporate this versatile azure sock in your wardrobe, whether you are dressing up or down.

Confidently casual

Ocean blue is one cool customer. For a real ‘contemporary casual classic’, pair with khakis and similar military greens. They look great together. Ocean blue will also effortlessly lift all blues: light blue, navy, denim. It is a companion for your casual co-ords. Naturally, your box-fresh white trainers are a failsafe.

What colours go with ocean blue?

Wondering what ocean blue’s colour wheel companions are? This is that unique kind of colour, in that it is eye-catching and rich, but still manages to feel stylishly subdued. This makes it the perfect colour to pair with brighter pops for a bit of a statement, without feeling garish. We’re talking yellows (lemon is especially great) and even coral pink. A merino or cashmere jumper in soft pink or coral, charcoal trousers or just your go-to denims, a timeless grey or salt and pepper woollen peacoat, and Simply Sartorials in Ocean? Thumbs up. Snap up this shade and other complementary blues and hues with Dash of Class in Ocean.

Coral and pastel knitwear and Ocean blue Simply Sartorial socks– a match made in heaven.

Ilaria Urbinati’s Ocean Diamond from The Spotlight Collection

Add a bit of flair and fun with some patterned ocean blue socks. The Spotlight Collection, our collaboration with Ilaria Urbinati, features a couple pairs that combine ocean with cool checks and vintage motifs. They look dapper with classic tailoring and will make your business attire make the right kind of statement. But they also add some personality to off-duty looks, when paired with jeans or darker chinos.

Feeling Formal

This is a fantastically rich shade that looks great colour coordinated with black and dark navy, lending itself well to being properly ‘dressed up’. Your trusty black suit? Navy tailoring? Black tie? Three strong yeses. For an unexpected but entirely elegant formal switch-up, try to style them with a pair of black trousers and a velvet jacket in a wine or burgundy. Really smart – as you can see above. Especially great for wintery weddings.
