One of this fall’s inspirations is the tried and true blue of denim. Break out your blue jeans Baby! Denim for every day is back but not just for your favorite jeans. Denim dresses, shirts, skirts and jumpers have taken center stage too. The amount of stretch fabric incorporated into denim today makes it more of a comfort wear than ever before. Try dark wash denim for a dressed up look for work or after hours.

Plus, blue is the hue of the season. Practically every shade of blue colored the New York Fashion Week catwalk earlier this year in anticipation of fall/winter 2016. Think 50 shades of blue! Pantone declared the blue color family the anchor of its fall 2016 color report released during Fashion Week.

Here are a few illustrations to capture the denim and blue inspiration!

Details like side seam studs on jeans and the lace-up look on dresses add new dimension to denim.

I surreptitiously took this picture of a stylish traveler on a flight this summer but got permission to use his photo! Kudos to him for his premium dark wash denim paired with checked blue shirt, colorful blue and grey striped socks, brown leather watch and suede Oxfords.
