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.

GET THE LOOK>> High Waist Tube Skirt, Colorblock Peplum Top (also loving Sequin Peplum Top), Carrie Exotic Peep Toe Pump, Linear Shoulder Duster Earring, Oversized Geometric Clasp 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.

GET THE LOOK>> Day: Power Knit Cutout Dress, Corset Stretch Metal Clasp Belt, Bow Frame Satchel, Zahara Leather Slingback Cork Platform Sandal, Stud Trio Earring Set. Night: Power Knit Cutout Dress, Sequin Rope Wristlet, Rosario Satin Platform Pump, Oversized Hammered Hoop Earring.

THE TOP

WHY WE LOVE IT>> We can pair it with any bottom our little hearts desire! This means we can dress it down or up.

HOW TO ROCK IT>> Go off-duty in skinny black denim, an oversized handbag and a pair of animal-print flat sandals. For a night out with the girls or a date look, try glossy leatherette shorts, black pumps and a studded clutch. Finish with a statement necklace.

GET THE LOOK>> Day: Sleeveless Flyaway Button Up Tank, Signature Stretch Skinny Jean, Whitney Woven Tote, bebe Logo Heart Animal Flat Sandal. Night: Sleeveless Flyaway Button Up Tank, Jeather Trouser Short, Rosario Satin Platform Pump, Quilted Pyramid Stud Clutch, Geometric Hammered Metal Disc Necklace.
