Men’s style tips: how to wear ocean blue

Blog, Men’s Style Tips, News • 04 January 2023

Cool, calming, contemporary, ocean blue is our first colour of the season for the new year. And you know what? A better colour to stride into January would be hard to find. This attractive bluey green is refreshing, It’s beautifully vivid but not overpowering. It looks modern while remaining timeless. It is universally flattering.

Dressed up and dressed down, learn how to incorporate this versatile azure sock to your wardrobe for a ‘new year, new hue’ you.

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? Yes, yes, yes. 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 winter weddings.

Confident 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, box-fresh white trainers are a failsafe.

Colour wheel companions

Ocean blue 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 with The Ocean sock 3-pair gift box.

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