Every year we reach the third Monday in January and wherever we look the headlines tell us it’s the most depressing day of the year.
Originally the Blue Monday tag came from a marketing campaign by travel company Sky Travel. But with Christmas a distant memory, credit card bills for the festivities beginning to roll in, the weather less than inspiring and payday still a way off it’s no wonder this day has got itself a bit of a reputation.
This year though, we’ve decided not to be swayed by a title, and we are going to celebrate all that is blue instead!
From navy and royal blue through to teal, cornflower and cobalt, we have a beautiful array of blue pieces in stock at the moment. Read on to find out about some of our favourites. Then treat yourself to a browse around our online store to chase away those winter blues.
This deep blue crossover dress is one of the highlights of our latest collection. We love the intricate white diamond print and the tie waist which lets you celebrate your curves.
We all need a top we can turn to when we're in a hurry, something that’s comfy and will go with pretty much anything. And this dark blue stitched stripe top fulfils both of those wishes in bucketloads. It works equally well under a suit jacket as it does with leggings and pumps, making it a sure-fire wardrobe favourite.
In bold electric blue with stylish drop sleeves, this loose fit tunic will add drama to your look. The cut is comfy yet oh so stylish and looks fantastic with black leggings or trousers.
This muted blue wool blend jumper is so snuggly it has fast become a favourite with the Apples & Pears team. Also available in pink and yellow to help you make it through the colder months!
These royal blue leggings with lace detail at the hem are bold, fun and super comfy. Want to brighten your mood? Then team them with pink or orange on your top half. Alternatively, pair with white, dark brown or tan for a more classic look.
We are loving the current trend for teal, making this skirt a firm favourite. It can easily be dressed up or down, and with its swishy style we bet you won’t be able to resist doing the odd twirl every now and then to feel it flare out!
