If you’ve read our guide to the biggest spring and summer fashion trends of 2024, then you’ll know that there are certain colours that are set to be huge this year. From snow whites to metallic finishes, there’s plenty to choose from, but as someone who favours a subtle pop of colour, I’ll definitely be opting for the sky blue trend. If you didn’t know, this soft, blue hue was seen all over the runways at the likes of Stella McCartney, Fendi and Versace, paired with soft cream shades and silver accessories. After seeing all of the outfits, I have fallen in love with this chic colourway, and have already purchased some sky blue items to add to my wardrobe.
One look on Instagram and you will see this trend everywhere.
However, as a beauty editor, I’ve also been thinking about how to add this shade into my beauty routine. Although I won’t be opting for blue lipstick anytime soon, I’ve decided that I’m bringing back this nail colour for spring and summer, and after seeing the pictures below, I’m thinking you might want to do the same. This shade was pretty big last year, with celebrities such as Sofia Richie Grainge and Sabrina Carpenter jumping on the trend, and if the runways are anything to go by, I think it’s going to be back and bigger than ever come March and April. So, if you want to get ahead and give sky blue nails a go, keep on scrolling for all the inspo…
