50 Shades of Blue: 12 Venue Pieces that Prove Blue is the Color of the Season

Is there anything better than a clear blue sky on a summer day? Or the beautiful blue water that cools you off when the sun is beating down? In fact, it may because blue is so often found in nature that psychologists say the color emotes feelings of serenity and calmness. So why not add a little to your closet? In this post, we’ll show you Venue’s favorite blue shirts, skirts, dresses, and accessories that illustrate why a pop of blue may be just what your wardrobe needs.

1 + 2. Striped Tank & Denim Skirt

This look is perfect for a hot summer day. The striped tank is a great way to incorporate stripes into your outfit (see this post, explaining why stripes are on trend right now), and the denim skirt is simple and classy. Plus, you can adjust your accessories to dress this look up or down.

Both the COA Royal Stripe Tank and the Liverpool Pencil Skirt sell at Venue for $59.

3. Fun Romper

The romper takes away all the hassle of having to pick out a top and bottom that work together by giving you an entire outfit in just one piece. This one even incorporates two prints, another big trend this year. Another benefit? The waist cinches in to ensure the piece flatters you in the best possible way.

The BB Dakota Navy Printed Romper is available at Venue for $88.

4. Flowy Dress

The only thing as easy to throw on in the summer as a romper? A dress! This floral maxi dress is not only gorgeous, but super comfortable, even in summer heat. Pair it with a pair of cute sandals, and prepare for the compliments to roll in.

5 + 6. Two-For-One with Elegant Earrings

Is it a shirt? Is it a skirt? It’s both! This navy polka dot piece can be worn as either, and the ruffles make it fun and flattering either way. And no matter which way you wear it, pairing it with some lighter blue earrings is the perfect way to accessorize.

Pick up the BB Dakota Polka Dots Skirt/Shirt Nany for $68 and the Cecelia Blue Earrings for $25.

7 + 8. Teal Tank & Denim Shorts

This top combines two shades of blue in a cute and casual striped pattern. There are endless options to pair this top with, but we’re quite fond of wearing it with a simple pair of denim shorts. It’s the perfect way to pull of not one, not two, but three beautiful shades of blue.

If you’re ready to rock blue on blue on blue, pick up the Free People Twist Stripe Tank for $48 and the Liverpool Trouser Shorts for $59.

9 + 10. Loose Tank & Bralette

A loose top paired with a bralette is one of our favorite styles for the summer, and this double blue combo is no exception. The tank is nice and breezy, and could even be worn as a workout top. The lacy bralette looks fabulous with this tank, but would match just about any top you have!

We love the Free People Movement Tank, which sells for $48 and the Free People Bralette, which goes for $20.

11 + 12. Graphic Tee & Leather Bracelet

Want a new shirt to pair with those denim shorts from number 8? How about a classic graphic tee? This light blue one is the perfect way to show off that Michigander pride. Throw on a cute leather bracelet to accessorize, and you’re ready to rock.

This Michigan Awesome Tee sells for $28, and the bracelet price can be found in the store.
