My approach, when looking for these garments, was to find a range of shades of blue, and a range of moods from very dressy to quite utilitarian.

They should be in the same mood and family, so that your accessories will look good with them all. The only exception would be if you wanted to be able to layer your blue cardigan over your blue tops – that would then demand a whole new level of coordination! Possible, but much more rigorous and time-consuming.
