If you’ve been shopping recently, you’ve surely noticed this gorgeous hue in nearly every storefront. From dresses and skinny pants to shoes and handbags, cobalt blue is everywhere this season! Whether you tend to stick with neutrals or love to play with color, this gorgeous jewel tone is a breath of fresh air from the pastels and neons floating around the fashion world as of late. While this color isn’t exactly “out there,” it can be easily overdone. Below are some great tips for wearing the cobalt blue trend — and pulling it off, too!
Aren’t sure this look is for you? No matter what skin tone or hair color you have, a cobalt blue dress is a perfect match. Try pairing a dress, like the flowy beauty shown above, with white or nude shoes during the day. For an extra fun look, go one step further and opt for a brighter set of kicks in shades such as yellow or aqua. Planning a night on the town? Take this look from day to night by pairing it with black heels or gray suede wedges.
Some of you may be wondering if this trend is safe for the office. Albeit bright, cobalt blue can be properly added to your office attire for a refreshing look this summer. This drapey tee looks polished with white skinny jeans (another trend you should be wearing this season) or trousers and accented flats.
For a more casual ensemble, be on the lookout for great accessories to pair with your favorites this summer. For example, a simple black tank and comfy denim shorts are given a makeover when paired with blue sneakers and a cheetah and cobalt blue scarf. In addition, these jeweled bangles and the Molly patent crossbody bag are perfect additions to outfits that just need a little “something.” Available in varying shades from bright to dark, cobalt blue is a sure winner this summer and is easily paired with neutrals, brights, and even pastels. Add a few of these colorful pieces to your closet this season for an on-trend and fashion-forward look!
