Fall Fashion: Styling Cobalt Blue

Cobalt Blue


Mercedes-Benz Fashion week kicks off in New York tomorrow, so I’ll be bringing you a few posts — and Polyvore collages — on looks I love for fall. (Polyvore is weirdly addictive. If you have any looks to share, let me know! Or follow me at prairiestylefile on Polyvore, if you like.)

The Look: Cobalt Blue
I think most blues are boring, but I love cobalt. It’s strong and sexy and it works equally well with summer brights and more subdued fall colors.

How to Wear It:

  • Try it with jewel tones like emerald and amethyst.
  • Make it sporty with neon accents like highlighter pink or bright yellow.
  • Pair it with a neutral. White and cobalt is a classic Mediterranean-inspired combo for the last days of summer, and black is edgy and mysterious.
  • Try it with chunky gold jewelry. Gold is huge for fall and it looks cool – and¬†vaguely nautical –¬†when paired with cobalt.

Do you love it, or are you into a more subdued blue? What colors are you into for fall?
