Cobalt Confidential

From opulent brocades at Stella McCartney to street chic looks at Balenciaga, the Fall 2012 fashion runways were filled with cobalt blue clothing. Perfect for work or play, the color flatters almost every skin tone and exudes power.  The sleek cobalt blue pants from Prabal Gurung have rock royalty written all over them and the colored *fur at Lanvin is a work of art (*shhhh, don't tell PETA).

Now: Blouse- Robert Rodriguez , Bag- Rebecca Minkoff, Jeans- MiH, Sandals- Zara Later: Blazer- Smythe, Jeans - Rag & Bone, Earrings- Lulu Frost, Pumps- Jean-Michel Cazabat

This summer, pair cobalt with crisp white and pops of neon. I'm usually not one for lace, but this Robert Rodriguez blouse has a bit of edge in the bright hue (the dress version is also fab). For fall, I plan on teaming cobalt clothes with other jewel tones, black, and gold accents to create a luxe look. Modern tuxedo inspired pieces turn heads when updated in this current color.
