Forget your navys, duck eggs and indigos. A primary shot of cobalt is the colour injection your spring wardrobe needs. Worn as a colour block, striped or patterned, the rich sapphire hue conjures up images of Santorini summers and Yves Saint Laurent’s Majorelle Gardens in Marrakesh for some sunshine-inspired dressing.

A versatile shade, it looks great worn with fresh whites and cream neutrals, finished with sharp black and gold accessories for a clean and minimal look. Opt for linen shirts and dresses, lightweight knits or just a splash in your accessories.

Here are fifteen buys to help you head into the blue.
