How To Wear: Cobalt Blue

how to wear cobalt blue 2As I said in my previous post I absolutely fell in love with cobalt blue which is one of this season’s colours and will remain popular through autumn. It has been a runway hit in autumn/winter 2014/2015 collections, particularly during London Fashion Week. 

Some people are bit wary of wearing cobalt blue as they think it’s too bold and hard to match with other colours. But surprisingly to their opinion this vivid blue can be paired well across the colour palette – it is a perfect companion to pastels and adds even more vivacity when mixed with other bold colours.

Also it looks amazing on any complexion form fair to dark and you can wear it all year round. So give it a try! Start embracing this beautiful hue and you will love to wear it.

Have a look at my suggestions how to wear cobalt blue.

Blue & Yellow

Blue & Yellow is a very summery combination. Perfect for beach and holiday wear.
