How To Wear Cobalt Blue

For example, take the neon trend. We love neon colors. But for some, this color just is not a versatile or practical color to combine in with their other color preferences and wear.  Further, that would explain why neutral colors have most people prefer and pick neutral colors to their wardrobe pieces for it’s versatility to look perfectly polished and chic with any other piece, regardless of season or weather.

With the cooler upcoming months, many of us would be pulling out the darker colors of mostly blacks and greys. The days are slowly losing it’s vibrancy and warmth so why should we let our outfit be as gloomy and dark?

    I just bought a colbalt blue dress and nude shoes to go with it for a formal event. I also want to get some sort of colorful clutch to go with. What colors would you suggest if I were to buy a clutch bag to go with the outfit?

    • Hi Liz,
      What a fabulous choice of color for your dress! Matching your handbag/clutch to your shoes is a classic fashion practice so if you were to purchase a nude clutch, it would look pretty spectacular with your colbalt blue dress. A silver clutch would also look beautiful with colbalt blue. Depending on the embellishments you have on your dress, a rhinestone encrushted clutch would really make your dress dazzle!

      Hope this helps and let us know if you have any more questions! 🙂
