With the range of pastels, florals and tropical prints dominating the runways, shades of blue — from Tiffany box to fresh hyacinth to oceanic — have become the “it” colors for spring. By mixing these colors with other coordinating hues (think whites, yellows and greens), color blocking and pattern mixing of cobalts, navies and ceruleans is a subtle technique to slightly enhance one’s look.
This Fashionista sports a color block à la Proenza Schouler’s spring 2012 collection by pairing mustard gold J. Brand jeans with a sheer blue floral Equipment blouse. By pairing two jewel tones, this Fashionista rocks bright, statement colors in the middle of the winter without looking too “springy.”
Accessorizing with a pastel blue cashmere rag & bone scarf, this Fashionista is seriously on point with translating runway-ready looks onto the streets. Perfect for these mild winter days, a scarf can serve as a great alternative to an outwear coat or vest when paired with the right foundation (think a long-sleeve blouse or sweater and jeans or leggings).
Spotted: Florals in numerous shades of sapphire brightened up the ready-to-wear collections of Alexander Wang, Band of Outsiders and Jason Wu. This nouveau blueprint for style, literally, combines blues and flowers for an element of fashion that is both chic and sweet.
