In somewhat of a sartorial surprise, spring’s hottest hue is a callback to winter — icy blue. You might be ready to forget the frosty season (and all its taxing accoutrements), but this cool colour plucked from sub-zero climates actually has countless wardrobe applications as the weather warms.

The proof? Gossamer-like dresses at Proenza Schouler, slinky slips at Jason Wu and a particularly compelling lineup of miniskirts and short shorts at Versace, all washed in the pretty shade. Here, we’ve rounded the best blue pieces that are shoppable right now.
