True Blue

7 Aug

Rich blue shades like the dress worn by Blake Lively to the MTV movie awards are now being seen in shirts, bags, jeans and dresses everywhere on the high street. I adore this colour it’s so bright and cheerful and is great for colour-blocking! This ASOS clutch would give a huge pop of colour to a plain LBD or LWD (little white dress) as would these leggings from romwe.com. I’ve also chosen this parka in royal blue it’s a lot more interesting than the typical beige or khaki parkas worn over floral dresses for festivals! Blue stones in bracelets and these blue feather earrings by Miss Selfridge really make a statement as do these amazing shoes from Office. (links below!)

Note: Avoid pairing more than one or two blue items together as people will think you are a promo girl for the smurfs movie.

    I am blue biased. It’s my favorite color. Love the pumps.

    Cobalt is such a fantastic and seasonless color; everyone should have at least one jewel-tone blue item in their wardrobe. I love the black and blue combo seen on a few of these pieces. Tres chic!

    I want all of those pieces…I’m going through a major “blue” phase myself. Check out my J Brand’s in this very colour here. Thanks for stopping by my blog! 🙂

  1. I would go out tonight but I haven’t got a stitch to wear.. « theglitterpost - September 12, 2011

    […] This first dress from Reiss combines lace AND metallic a clear winner!I also love this black long-sleeved dress with leather panel from Oasis which would look insanely good with either black shoe-boots or a colour block heel. Warehouse have gone sophisticated chic with simple navy and white but beading detail on the cuff and I could not leave out this blue number from lipsy such a great shade!(hint hint https://theglitterpost.wordpress.com/2011/08/07/true-blue/).
