It’s officially Summer in one week, which means it’s time to break out of your all-black rut and embrace color—and my must-have hue is blue! Nothing radiates on bronzed skin quite like beachy, oceanic shades, from aqua to turquoise to cobalt!
For the color-wary, I suggest adding blue into your wardrobe through accessories. Try sexy strappy heels with a sundress, ladylike pumps with your tailored work suit or simple d’orsay flats with your boyfriend jeans and a tee. Or add a blue punch to any look with a vibrant tote for day, and a bright crossbody bag for night. I also love the idea of incorporating blue into your summer jewelry. From a bold pendant necklace, to oversized statement earrings to a luxe hand chain bracelet these subtle hints of color will add instant impact to your look!
For the color-enthusiast (like myself), go bold by making blue the focal point of your outfit! Wear a short, silky dress—like the Jenna (already on my wishlist!)—with nude sandals for day and then kick things up a notch with shiny metallic heels for night. I also love mixing shades of blue for a chic, monochromatic look. Try pairing a pale blue top with a vivid blue bottom and heels for an of-the-moment look. Or break up the tonality of the group by adding a print to the mix with a feminine blue floral or graphic stripes.
So whatever your style preference, make sure you make blue a go-to!
