Today’s look is about combining light blue with a toffee shade of brown. Think gorgeous blue skies and salted caramels, or the Caribbean sea with stroopwafels. This might be a combination you prefer to sport in Autumn and Winter, which is probably how I’ll wear it. Maybe throw in some chocolate brown and cream for good measure. But there’s no time like the present, so give the combination a go in Summer if you have the pieces.

Pretty much any combination of a shade of light blue with a shade of toffee will do. Faded denim and chambray count as light blue, and cognac or tan counts as toffee. Throw in a light blue and toffee pattern, or use amber jewellery as the toffee component. Here are some renditions to get you started.

1. Light Blue Top & Toffee Bottoms

Combine a toffee skirt, pair of pants, culottes or shorts with a light blue top that works with the bottoms. Finish off the outfit with white, red, tan or cognac footwear. Feel free to make the look casual or dressy. This outfit is dressy, but wear the same top with toffee chinos and white sneakers and you’re good to go.

2. Toffee Top, White Bottoms & Light Blue Accessories

Combine a toffee top with white pants, skirt or shorts and finish off the look with light blue footwear and bag. You could sub the white bottoms for light blue jeans and throw in white or cognac footwear and bag instead.

3. Light Blue Dress & Toffee Footwear

Choose a light blue dress in a pattern, light denim or chambray and complete the outfit with toffee footwear and bag. Or wear toffee footwear and throw in any colour bag. A blue and white striped dress is an easy way to wear a light blue pattern.

4. Light Blue Top, White Jeans & Toffee Bits

This is the simplest way to wear the combination. Combine white jeans with a light blue or chambray top, and complete the look with toffee tidbits like a cognac or tan bag, belt and shoes. Or throw in metallic footwear and wear amber jewellery.
