Refining the Blues

Menswear designers are turning to the blues for comfort in these tumultuous times, presenting tailored suits and casual wear in a soothing and versatile palette that ranges from azure and turquoise to indigo and classic navy. In contrast to the somber tones and monotonous neutrals of winter, these harmonious shades strike notes of confidence and calm to welcome the new season.
