With the magic of Christmas officially over for another year and the thrills of the festive season long behind us, life may seem a little dull in comparison to all of last month’s sparkle. We’re all wondering what there is to look forward to for the next few weeks and with January being notorious for feeling extremely long, it really feels like there isn’t a light at the end of this tunnel – or at least not for the foreseeable. 


There has never been a truer saying than the struggle is real right now!


We get it! We feel your pain girls, lack of inspiration, motivation and money means we are all in some serious need for cheering up. So, in true OTL fashion, we’re here to provide you the ultimate quick fix that will be sure to lift your spirits. We’re talking about a style switch up. Whilst we associate January with feeling blue, we’re choosing to take inspiration from its biggest trend. Instead of giving into the sombre mood, instead we are incorporating brilliant blues into our outfits instead. From cobalt colourways, azure hues and effervescent indigo – here’s how to beat the blues the OTL way.

If your plan was to keep a low profile in January, then this outfit isn’t for you. The cobalt colouring of this silky, sensational duo is exactly what the doctor ordered and is sure to turn heads for all the right reasons, thanks to the flattering ruched detail. Instead of hiding under layers, strut into the new year with serious sass and brand new attitude, by pairing this dreamy set with sleek boots and circular bag.

Incorporating blue into your wardrobe is a sure-fire way to brighten up your look. If you enjoy keeping your overall look minimalist and usually opt for black, this look is the ultimate way to up your game for 2019. A longline coat in azure blue is an easy way to stay simple whilst exuding brilliance. Feeling daring? Team with a scarlet red bag for extra flamboyance.

Much like the Baltic weather, this look offers an icy edge. Although baby blue is the most tonal of the hue, don’t be fooled by the calm colourway – it will create just the right amount of impact to ensure you get noticed this January. Thanks to the combination of powder blue and white, this look oozes sophistication that will take you from desk to an after-work date!

An easy way to look well put together with very little effort is to opt for a jumpsuit and this periwinkle version is the perfect way to turn the blues on their head. This fun style is laid back and effortless – everything January should be. Whilst this jumpsuit keeps the overall look casual, by accessorising with snakeskin heels and a slogan necklace you can give this look new dimensions, making it not only daytime appropriate but also evening attire!
