Ladies, cobalt blue is really huge this season, so it is up to you to know how to go about wearing it. We have seen blue in all aspects in the past, but this season it is all about the deep calming colors of dark blues that we can find down in the ocean water. So put away those pastels, and work in a darker blue into your wardrobe!
HOW TO WEAR COBALT BLUE: Light On Your Feet
When you find the best cobalt minidress, what shoes do you end up wearing with it? When we want to keep attention on our outfit, we tend to think that wearing black on our feet will be able to keep all eyes above. However, sometimes black doesn’t cut it, and a different neutral needs to be added, such as nude. A nude shoe worn with blue looks perfectly polished because it keeps the attention directly on the fascinating color of your dress, but it also appears to make your legs longer. Don’t have nude shoes? Opt for a pair or gold strappy heels or a shimmery gold pump if you want to really dress the look up.
Sure, wearing a dress in a color so sublime is a great option, but it is not the only one. A soft satin blouse looks absolutely amazing in a deep blue. For the best look, try and get a blouse that is a little looser fit and that hits directly on the hip line. The flowing effect of this blouse will allow you to look like a mere goddess. Pair this top with a cute skirt for work, a pair of slightly lighter jeans for play, or a pair of trouser shorts when you are heading off to your winter vacation. Add a little sparkle to your look with some flashy jewelry or a lot of large pendants in different shapes and sizes.
Want to have fun with your accessories? Then add some blues to your look with a cobalt small day bag or a delicious indigo pump. These are the best options to add a whole lot of color to your wardrobe in a very simple way. Wear a pair of boyfriend jeans rolled up, a slouchy tee and a fabulous pair of blue shoes and you have instantly transformed your look from relaxed and chill to hot and trendy. Instead of wearing your everyday dainty jewels, add a little color to your neck with a funky blue necklace. Have fun with this look by wearing it with a color opposite of the color wheel, such as an orange blouse with a large blue necklace.
Go ahead and get the hottest color this season. You know you want to feel the excitement of wearing such a passionate color.
