Rich, vibrant and utterly cool, cobalt blue is appearing in offerings head to toe come fall.


IND-Style_blue1Choose a single pop with a belt, handbag or chunky necklace or fully embrace this fall’s cobalt blue hue with a mile high wedge, bold denim or classically cut dress. Blue pairs beautifully with primary colors — we love a mustard or tomato red. And works wonders to bring neutrals a sense of panache — we love a simple white button down with cobalt skirts or denim.

Jeans always have been blue, and this fall cobalt takes your favorite weekend wear to bright places. Pair with a vivid print, or a simple white or basic black top. And don’t be afraid to add a bold scarf or pop of color with a vibrant shoe, contrasting necklace (mustard would be tasty) or more blue (turquoise and cobalt are divine). Hudson jeans, $146, are from Hemline.

Flattering for every complexion is blue’s brightest star in a dress that’s head to toe perfection. A leopard print shoe works great if you’re daring. And primary colored wedges create an instant color block. If you’re looking for a safer option, think simple black heels, statement gold necklace or even a warm brown boot. Viereck dress, $89, is from Vanessa V. Boutique.

Blue beauty in this supple Marc Jacobs from kiki. A blue handbag can easily become your everyday piece pairing seamlessly with a neutral palette and standing out if you lean more toward the heavily-hued options everywhere for fall. Marc Jacobs handbag, $1,295, is from kiki.

Cobalt and gold in this dramatic necklace pair for a look that can go luxe or boho. Layer with another simple pendant or go solo. Necklace, $42.50, is available at Jewelie’s. — AB
