It's Electric: Cobalt Blue

I think cobalt blue is such a dynamic color - I am so glad its one of the big color trends for fall - its such a bright pop of color for a season that is usually filled with neutrals, browns and muted color palettes. There was some variation of it on literally almost every single runway at the fall shows over the past few weeks...

If you plan on trying the bright hue, its a good idea to keep jewelry and accessories minimal. Simple gold or silver jewelry is perfect. If you're a little wary of wearing such an eye-popping color, try pairing a blouse in cobalt with cream or black slacks to keep things from becoming too overwhelming.

Cobalt is also a great choice for dressing up - I am loving the dresses like the Duchess of Cambridge's - definitely a bold look. Her sister Pippa's blue blazer is pretty fabulous too - so chic and classic paired with white jeans.

So much pretty cobalt blue to go around...personally, I think the flats are the perfect choice for my fall wardrobe...
