Blue on Blue on Blue Plus A Metallic Skirt Too- How to Wear the Trend -Bold & Bright!

Blue on Blue on Blue Plus A Metallic Skirt Too- How to Wear the Trend -Bold & Bright!

It’s  “Go Bold” or “Go Home” in your face COLOR!  FOR WINTER!

How to do it?

The Trick-

Metallic on the bottom half

Cotton Fabrics in a Bold Bright Blue on top.

It’s the same effect as wearing a light color pant with a dark top.  The Metallic Blue shoes do two things.  They Neutralize the skirt (they are both metallic) into one statement enabling you to make it a “day look” with cotton fabrics. The Bold Blue shoe will also tie in your color top.

The v-neck does draw the eye down but the bold blue brings your eye back up.  It’s a creative visual trick.  A boxy Retro inspired coat in the same color blue begins to take the outfit from a spring/ summer statement into a fall/winter mode.  Why?  The box coat adds bulk & swing to slim sculpted look.  A scarf at the neck in black will pick up the dual tone leather bag & move your look into the “A Game” level of pulled together City Chic.  Add Blue tinted Shades & a watch with the band in the same shade & you are ready to go!

The Fashion & Getting the Look
Denim- Boyfriend Fit – Eddie Bauer $26
T-shirt- Ellos.se 99 SEK  (They are a fabulous Swedish Company but unfortunately they have not expanded beyond Scandanavia 😦 )  However, all is not lost if you like the unique cut and fashion affordable price.  A similar shirt is also available at ginatricott.com.  Gina Tricott is now spreading throughout Europe & recently opened stores in Italy and France (thankfully !)  A small word of warning at Gina Tricott, it’s very hard to walk into a store and not want 1 of everything in every color.  In the USA, the hunt for basic tee’s with a bit of extra detail at a $12 price point has been trickier.  H&M, Mango, TJ MAXX, & Marshall’s have been recent success stories for me with this.
The Sequin Jacket
This one is on sale $341 at theoutnet.com  it’s by Faith Connexion
Fit is important if you are going for the sequin trend this Autumn.  Wherever you find your jacket, loose fit is important.  Something with more structure is not going to work well for a casual denim daytime look.  It will also look too stiff and formal for styling with a tight black wiggle dress when you want to jazz up a club look or show off at a holiday party. For the most versatility you want it cropped and slightly loose fit.  It has to drape well for it to work & not turn you into a fashion “don’t”.

How to Update Your Classic Wardrobe - Look 2

Complimentary Colors work well together otherwise they would not be complimentary.  Do try mixing and matching cool tones.  Brighten up a Denim Shirt & Black Leather Pants with Purple Accessories. Pull the look together with a bright blue shoe.  Make the look more sophisticated with a dark grey princess coat.
