Shades of Blue for Every Occasion
At Connected Apparel, we love every shade of blue. From cobalts to periwinkles to sky blues and navys, there is always an occasion for you to wear a blue dress or jumpsuit.
The color blue has not always had the best association with well-known quotes like “feeling blue” to represent sadness. But, in psychology, blue is actually known to represent trustworthiness and have a calming effect when in nature. We’re fans of the latter description, and if wearing a blue dress or jumpsuit can help you feel comfortable, confident AND calm, we’ll continue to create styles in every shade of blue, season after season.
The 9 to 5 Blues
There’s nothing more motivating on a Monday morning than wearing a new outfit to work. Whether it’s the excitement of power dresses or knowing you can hit the snooze button a few times thanks to the ease of a one-and-done outfit, dresses are a must-have for work.
Estelle is a modest bodycon dress with feminine detail in a lux navy blue, creating executive aesthetics at any level of your career. For something that has more coverage but is just as sophisticated, Lana is a go-to choice. She's a cobalt blue work dress with front-knot detailing that you’ll wear year-round.
Blue Skies, the Weekend has Arrived!
After conquering the work week, it's time to plan the weekend which could include anything from, rest and relaxation, running errands, to fun outings like date night or brunch! However you choose to spend your weekend, blue is still the perfect color. With a variety of shades, your blue attire can dress up or down your overall look.
A cute day gathering like brunch with friends is the perfect time to wear a lively shade of blue like aqua. Aqua is known to give off a youthful and energetic feeling which is perfect for socializing on a happy occasion. Our Suzie dress is an example of this, with her floral print, aqua layers, and matching sheer shrug. For an occasion like running errands, our Terra dress in calming Periwinkle blue is similar to sky blue, which gives mellow, leisurely vibes.
Blue Vacation Bliss
Blue Bliss is an excellent way to describe summer destination vacation wear. Think clear waters, tropical reefs, and blue skies, because rain on vacation is a nightmare! The Melissa jumpsuit is great when sightseeing and taking on new adventures in a new country, state, or even a new side of town. One of the best qualities of Melissa is its blue and black leafy print that easily can match with your denim jacket, sweater, or cardigan when hot summer days turn into chilly nights. Another great choice for casual resort wear is a maxi dress. They are easy to wear and comfortable. Our latest maxi dress addition, Kelly, is available in turquoise! Turquoise is known to represent healing, protection, and serenity, which aligns with a recharging vacation holiday.
Wedding Bell Blues
Brides are likely to hear the saying “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something new.” Believe it or not, this Victorian Era rhyme is rooted in deterring evil spirits and protecting the soon-to-be bride's fertility. Something old signifies protection for the couple's future kin, something new was a representation of an optimistic future, and something borrowed was a symbol of “borrowing” happiness from another couple. Something blue, as previously stated, does not represent sadness on this joyous occasion like a wedding. Blue in this instance conveys purity, love, fidelity, and wards off evil spirits.
If your duty is to give the soon to be bride something blue, or even if it’s the required theme of the bridal party, we have a few options for you. The Tina dress is a sky blue cowl neck sequins cocktail dress, fit for a wedding or a plethora of special occasions. If you need something floor length, Grace will instantly elevate your look with her alluring navy blue sequin and lace.
