What’s not to love about cobalt blue

One of the “trend” colours for Summer 2014 is Cobalt blue. It is generally a fairly universal colour suiting both blonds and brunettes. It teams well with black, navy and grey and can also look very fresh with white as the season progresses.

    Great color at any time of the year. Reminds me of the Delft porcelain I collect. I love hats as well. If you do find out about something similar, please share!!! I will try to find something on my side of the pond.

    Beautiful colour. I wore it for my daughter’s wedding over 2 years ago. Managed to get a long line sweater in it this Spring from MnS.

    I LOVE that colour! It is so summery and optimistic and you do look lovely in your sweater. It makes me think of Greek islands. I had my colours analysed a few years ago and I came out as a Blue Spring. Great hat too!

    I love this colour too and was very happy to find a cobalt blue patterned top in a local shop recently. I’m now hunting for a cobalt blue necklace, as the one I had broke and can’t be fixed. I’m on a shopping trip to our local city tomorrow (Murcia in Spain) so hoping to be lucky. I may very well be tempted by other cobalt blue clothes, especially having read this post!

    I think it’s a great colour – and perfect when the sun is shining!
