Hot Hue: Cobalt
If there’s one color we’re seeing a lot of this season, it’s cobalt. And we can’t get enough of it. It’s bright, it’s bold, and it commands attention! Whether it’s on a hip-hugging pencil skirt, glam cocktail dress or sexy top, one thing is for sure: there’s no better mate for this intense blue than sharp black. Here’s how some hot celebs rock it, followed by tips on how to make the look your very own.
Do you have a serious case of the blues too?

THE PENCIL SKIRT
WHY WE LOVE IT>> We can strut around our office in it and take it for cocktails later.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Pair it with a cute black and white colorblock top and finish with black peep toe heels. Come nightfall, all you’ll have to do is pop on a pair of statement earrings and bracelet.
THE COCKTAIL DRESS
WHY WE LOVE IT>> While it’s safe to say red is the go-to hue for hot winter cocktailing, blue is clearly the cool summer pick.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Try a black belt and handbag, add nude sandals and finish with a pair of stud earrings for a day look. For an after-dark outfit, reach for a pair of skyscraping satin pumps, a gold sequined clutch and a pair of oversized hoops.
