ACCESSORIES REPORT: Cool As Ice

Often overlooked, a Fashionista’s choice of color is just as important of an accessory as choosing the appropriate pair of shoes. And if there’s one color that looks amazingly chic on everyone, it has to be the classic icy blue. A huge trend over the summer and extending into the fall, this simple understated hue gives your favorite shirts and accessories a cool update.

This Fashionista beats the heat by keeping her color palette cool as ice. She rocks a simple, soft blue button-down with a modern pair of navy scalloped shorts. While I typically tend to shy away from pairing such like color families to keep a look interesting, this Fashionista’s combination is far from drab.

To play off of that favorite cool shade, this Fashionista adds on a bright necklace with playful baubles. Colored in a mixture of clear crystal and sky blue, this statement necklace works to pull her entire look together. I love how the bright gold plating stands out against this Fashionista’s complexion and adds a little flirty fun to her traditional button-down.

Even this Fashionista’s boat shoes follow her color palette. Her simple pair of Sperry Top-Siders get a fresh update, with navy blue leather with soft blue laces.

If there’s one update you’re planning on making to your summer wardrobe, invest in a few classic blue pieces to stay cool all year round.

Spotted: Pastels aren’t just for the spring anymore; Carven’s fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection included pieces in soft blue, pink and blush. Just pair them with your favorite edgy accessories, like leather boots, for a chic fall look.
