Frugal-nomics Inspiration: Cobalt Blue Crush

By  | 

We know that colors like emerald green have been on heavy rotation this year, but as we hunker down into fall cobalt blue has found its way into mainstream fashion. We saw Sandra Bullock wearing all blue to the premier of her new flick The Heat. And it’s not just celebrities doing the blues, Victoria Beckman, DKNY, Moschino, and Lacoste all had cobalt blue crushes in their collections for their Fall/Autumn 2013 shows. You will soon see cobalt blue everywhere, cosmetics, interiors, clothes, and accessories, so get ready!

It is easy to adopt the cobalt blue trend by simply looking at thrifty stores for royal blue accessories or a simple pair of royal blue jeans will do the trick. What about grandma’s old earrings with royal blue in it, they will be a perfect addition to your outfit for that pop of blue crush color. Cobalt blue is defiantly a classic choice and is super easy to wear. Mix creme, a metallic, or gray with cobalt blue and you will have a striking combo. Philo at Celine is a cobalt blue advocate and believes it looks fresh, yet so strong. And we can’t forget the Issa dress Kate Middleton wore for the announcement of her engagement to Prince William. You can’t deny it, cobalt blue is the colour everyone loves!
