Welcome back to our High Fashion series! Here we review runway trends, show you which influencers are rocking these hot trends, and explain where/how to get these trends for yourself.
Last week we went over the monochromatic matching neutrals trend.
This week, we will look at another color trend: Baby blue. This trend is perfect for Spring and Summer, so get ready for your latest fashion inspo.
HIGH FASHION TREND: Baby Blue
This on-trend color was seen across many 2019 Spring/Summer runway shows. Many fashion influencers are also loving baby blue lately.
Marc Jacobs is one of the biggest names in the fashion industry and he used quite a bit of baby blue in his SS 2019 collection. The design below is baby blue almost head to toe, with some medium and navy blue details.
Ph5 took baby blue and applied it to their latest collection. I particularly love this chic dress with an asymmetrical cut.
Tibi also loves this hue and designed two amazing dresses with a soft vibe. These casual, loose designs are perfect for a breezy spring day.
This design takes the laid-back dress and layers it over beige pants for a more professional ensemble.
Influencers in Baby Blue:
The runways aren’t the only place that you can find this baby blue hype! Influencers and stars alike are loving the color right now.
Taylor Swift brings a light and crocheted cropped baby blue sweater into her pastel style. She pairs the sweater with a romantic flower and high-waisted floral shorts.
Another sweater-lover, Dua Lipa, rocks her cropped sweater with white chinos and sunglasses for a casual day out.
Fashion influencer Danielle Bernstein takes a more monochromatic approach to the look with a baby blue fuzzy jacket, light denim cropped jeans, baby blue kitty heels, and a baby blue handbag!
How to Buy the Baby Blue Trend on a Budget:
Baby blue is a classic color, and incredibly versatile — almost like a neutral. Baby blue goes well with other spring colors but can also be used as a color pop for otherwise neutral or dark-colored ensembles.

Affordable Baby Blue #1:
Product: Wrap Tie Top; $33 – Revolve
This cropped wrap top looks lovely with the model’s cropped white pants and handbag. You could also pair it with a super high-waisted khaki pant and blazer for a professional look.
Alternatively, you could match it with your favorite summer skirt and nude heels for a casual afternoon out or for a coffee date.
Affordable Baby Blue #2:
Product: Off-the-Shoulder Top; $42 – Revolve
This off-the-shoulder top is flirty and could be paired with black cropped pants and heels for a date.
Otherwise, consider wearing it with your favorite boyfriend jeans, sandals, and a simple necklace for a laid-back stylish look.
Affordable Baby Blue #3:
Product: Bardot Romper; $47 – MissGuided
I love this romantic romper because it’s surprisingly versatile. You can rock it with gladiator sandals and a crossbody for a shopping trip or you can dress it up with white strappy heels, some statement earrings, and a summer handbag for a wedding.
Affordable Baby Blue #4:
Product: Midi Short; $35 – American Eagle
These light blue shorts are great for a day out in the sun with friends. Pair with a white top or tee and sneakers for a relaxed outfit. You could also pair it with a lightweight button-up blouse, layered necklaces, and flats for a cute but simple day at school.
Affordable Baby Blue #5:
Product: Off-the-Shoulder Midi Dress; $42 – MissGuided
This midi dress is a great option if you have any summer weddings to attend! The length is respectful, the shape is flattering, and the asymmetrical ruffled neckline adds some details.
Add a neutral toned heel and clutch for a classy touch.
Affordable Baby Blue #6:
Product: Low Rise Boot Editor Pants; $80 – Express
These baby blue pants are a professional and on-trend option for work! The clean cut is traditional and safe to pair with heels or flats alike.
I like the simple tee on the model, but other options include peasant blouses, button-ups, or bodysuits.
