Cobalt blue looks good when paired with neutrals. For instance; raw white pairs so well with cobalt blue and doesn’t bear a boring look while it still looks polished. As well, black is the ultimate pick for anyone caught up in a style rut. Just get a black match for your cobalt blue.

Opt for metallic accents to substitute neutrals when wearing the color. Metallic is the it-trend this season and has proven to be very much wearable and goes well with very many other colors.

But wait, you can also go for that monochromatic cobalt blue look. If you feel too lazy to get a pair for your color, then go monochrome.  You’ll see why that might be the best option…

ACCESSORIZING COBALT BLUE

When accessories cobalt blue, coordinate between nude, neutrals and metallic for finer looks . We know that accessories can make or break an outfit and if worn the wrong way, that can hurt your style. Well, accessorizing cobalt blue can be very tricky.

Nude, black or metallic goes will flatter your blue since they allow the dress to remain vibrant and dominant. Many are loving metallic especially silver when it comes to pimping cobalt blue. I too wore a pair of silver loop earrings and had a chain neckband still in silver.

HOW I WORE MY COBALT BLUE

With a full set of blues, my look was really going strong: from my cobalt blue shirt dress that I cinched with a blue belt , to my blue floppy hat and finally finishing it up with a pair of blue platform heels.

Shirt dresses and t-shirt dresses hit the streets hard in 2017 since everyone found them classic, wearable and very chic. I was also able to stock quite a number of them. I love how light this shirt dress is thus very good for hot seasons. Frankly, I’ve thrown this T-shirt dress over a set of black shorts and a black crop top and it more so acts like a light layer.

All blue! I’m really crushing over this, aren’t you?

Since cobalt blue grabs attention, wearing really bold makeup could bring out a clown-like appearance thus to approach it well, consider a more minimalist makeup. Nude makeup is always the best pick but if you want to experiment on color, you can go for softer colors like light pink, beige . But for me, nude was my thing today.
