I, for one, am all about a head-to-toe tonal look. While some may find it dull and old-fashioned, I think tone-on-tone gives an elevated, modern twist to any outfit. But, I also love mixing different shades of a specific color to give an outfit some dimension. With all the different varieties of blue out right now, this option is an easy one!
While shopping with a friend in the Hamptons last summer, I ran across this gorgeous Fleur du Mal slip dress in a shade of blue I hadn’t seen in a while. The best way to describe it is to imagine the deepest blue part of a peacock. The color was so rich and mature, but still fun … I am daydreaming of how I would have accessorized it … a pop of teal in my shoe, a stunning aqua clutch or even a navy blazer. Ugh, I am kicking myself for not getting it! But, as I surf the web and browse through stores this week, I realize that I have plenty of other ways to incorporate that beautiful peacock blue into my wardrobe. And, it doesn’t just stop there … I’m seeing wild electric blue (my mind goes straight to Debbie Gibson for some reason), soft baby blue and more conservative navy. And, my personal favorite, a classic cobalt.
I thought it might be fun to put a few different outfits together for you showing how I would mix my blues. Hope you have as much fun checking these out as I did creating them! 🖤
