Along with floral prints, pleating, and color-blocking, a significant trend of the summer season is also electric blue. Universally flattering, a color equally bright in the afternoon sun and in the midnight haze of a night club, eclectic blue plays an irreplaceable role in a fashionable wardrobe this season. Blue is everywhere – from the skinny stretch jeans to elegant, blazers, from mini-shorts to flowing summer sundresses, from wide-brimmed hats to the beach outfits. Needless to say – Katy Perry dyed her bright hair in eclectic blue! Even most of the cosmetic products of the season come in the blue color, because there is no other shade more positive and soothing than the color of two elements – the sky and the sea.
Catwalk and Hollywood
Many summer collections of the world’s leading fashion designers are filled with a wide variety of ideas and advice on the application of blue: exactly this color is featured in the noble trapeze dresses by Stella McCartney, Jil Sander and Victoria Beckham, and air doll dresses of Chanel, and flirty cropped jackets signed Proenza Schouler. Moreover, on various red carpet events, witnessed famous celebrities sporting elegant gowns in this eye-popping shade.
Wholly giving in the eclectic blue trend is not recommended. It is enough to add some color to your look, some blue spots and your wardrobe will sparkle with new colors. For example, light blue touches will give an edgy flair to a casual-pair of jeans and a white T-shirt, while an eye-popping blue-colored trench will add a fresh touch to your usual business suit. A cobalt clutch will become the necessary trendy bar in an evening sharpened look.
The smallest details of the new season are able to change the overall impression: the black cocktail dress will get a new elegance, if supplemented by a narrow belt or bright blue clutch, envelope, while a wide satin headband in juicy blue will make your evening hairstyle look noble. You can also try to sport the eclectic blue trend in makeup. Try the newly fashionable bright blue mascara, for instance. Shadows of indigo and azure will get the party started: these shades look particularly striking against the backdrop of blue eyes.
