If you’ve read any fashion mags or fashion-forward blogs, you’ve seen that cobalt is The Big Color for Fall/Winter. And it’s a lovely color, the color of the sky at times, the ocean some days, Paul Newman’s eyes.
And the color of gorgeous gems. I wouldn’t mind a vintage necklace like this, for example:
|Via Etsy, a gorgeous 1920’s stone necklace. I wouldn’t care about cobalt being on-trend; I’d wear
this beauty any time.
Cobalt does my skin tone no favors, though, when worn near my face. I have low-contrast coloring, and vivid colors overwhelm me. So I’ll add cobalt to my closet via pieces like this:
|This is so my style, via Bloomies (sold out now). I’d add a neutral or maybe a plum knit top.|
|Awesome knit skinnies from ASOS. I’d wear these a lot.|
Or these smart cotton blend trousers from Banana Republic:
I already have awesome blue suede shoes from Sofft:
And I’d like a sparkly bracelet; I wear bracelets every day.
|I like the pretty-but-rugged look of this Etsy bracelet.|
So I think I am nearly complete with my cobalt-ness. And you? Is it a color you like to wear? Do you care very much which colors are of-the-moment?
Happy, happy Monday,
