When it comes to selecting what colours go into your wardrobe, black and neutral shades like brown and grey are often the ones that  come to mind first. In fact, some of the most common colours that most of us would have when it comes to our everyday staples of shirts, pants and dresses would comprise of at least one of these three staples — but if you find these hues a little too basic for your liking, then we’ve got just the colour for you. When it comes to deciding what colour should be a must-have in every wardrobe, blue would definitely be our choice! 

Blue symbolises dependability, stability, and trust, but it can also represent consistency, authority, and strength. Plus, blue said to cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming and based on studies, blue has even been shown to increase intelligence and boost creativity.

Blue is one of the most popular shirt colours for both men and women, especially when it comes to professional wear. The aura of reliability it gives off certainly contributes to its rating as one of the most attractive shirt colours for both men and women. But how do you stand out amongst the sea of blues? You go for a batik shirt in blue! At Kapten Batik, we have various garments in different shades of blue  that will blend well with different bottoms that you own.
