Inspiration: baby blue menswear
This week I’ve posted a LOT of menswear (from the incredibly ugly Moschino collection to modern and antique embroidery and the perfect macaroni outfit), so let’s begin the weekend with this little selection of baby blue menswear very much in the mood of the pink menswear post.
Baby blue is a nice colour elegant and easy to the eye, is somehow discreet and offers a nice contrast with gold and yellow embelishments and a cold and similiar background to grey and silver.
And of course we must add that pastel colours rule.
