Whether you are rocking cobalt or baby blue, you can mix these chic hues with beautifully designed footwear. Instead of slipping into basic brown or black shoes, however, wear a pair of navy blue mules, sandals or pumps with your brightly-colored blue clothing. Welcome spring and summer with casual and work combinations appropriate for lunch with friends or an evening dinner date with the one you love.
Dress for Work
A simple cerulean white sheath demands a bright color to pump up the volume on this classic look. Wrap your shoulders in a white pashmina scarf or white cardigan sweater. Pair your white and blue look with navy blue strappy sandals and silver jewelry. Create shape at the waist with a thin leather white belt that will accent your curves beautifully.
Blue Pantsuit for Evening
Replace your basic black silk or satin evening pantsuit with a vibrantly-colored cobalt blue tuxedo. When paired with a white ruffled blouse and navy blue satin pumps, your look is undeniably sophisticated and chic. Accessorize your look with pearl stud earrings and a large silver and navy cocktail ring. Carry a turquoise satin bag for an unexpected pop of color.
Turquoise Pencil Skirt and White Blouse
Add a little wow to your crisp white blouse by pairing it with a turquoise-hued pencil skirt. For work, pair this with a white cotton blouse and silver stud earrings. Slip on your highest pair of closed-toe navy and silver pumps for a new twist on the basic office look. For evening, grab a clutch bag that mixes silver, white and turquoise and ditch the pumps for navy sandals for a look that will transition from work to evening easily.
Indigo Maxi Dress
Indigo is the rich, sexy cousin of navy and is a dark hue that mixes well with navy shoes. For a summer garden party, mix your floor-grazing maxi dress with flat, thong-style navy sandals. Slide four or five sterling silver bangles on your arm and carry a metallic silver bag to accent your deep-hued ensemble. You’ll look cool and comfortable whether you are attending a bridal shower or an informal gathering of your girlfriends.
