Blue is one of my personal favorite colors because it is so versatile. Blue can be worn literally thousands of ways, but because of space concerns, I will just show four takes on it. No matter what your style, you can wear some shade of the color in some way. Fun fact: feeling "blue" in Germany means that one is intoxicated. Read on to find some amazing blue pieces for prices that won't leave you feeling blue.
Dress it up:
If you want to feel pretty, girly, classy, and flirty, Campaigne is a great - and underrated- design brand to turn to. This one shoulder chiffon "Ariel" blue sundress is the epitome of all those adjectives. It will make you feel like a lady, but there's enough sex appeal there to keep you from feeling drab. The cut and pale blue print makes it perfect for going on vacation, or for a first date. It's 40% off at bluefly
Dress it Down:
You can't do a post on blue without delving into the ultimate blue piece of clothing: blue jeans. Blue jeans have transcended age, class and gender to infiltrate just about every wardrobe in the western world, but it's less common to find a pair of blue jeans that will flatter your body, and won't cost a fortune. These Victoria's Secret skinny jeans work best with smaller framed people, and will lengthen the legs. Pair with a flowy tank and heels for a breezy summer look, and look for them in the clearance section where they are $19.99, marked down from $59.99.
Dress with Class:
I ordinarily am struck by bright bold colors on shoes, often in knee high boot or sneaker form so that it creates an uncompromising block of brightness on the feet. As a result, it was a personal sacrifice to choose these demure Lumiani sapphire blue booties, but because they are so fabulous, I knew they were the right choice to include. You can wear them to class, to the office, to a club or to a party; basically you can wear them anywhere that doesn't require a lot of walking, and you will be the envy of everybody because they are hot and classy at the same time. They also happen to be 40% off at Zappos, which is pretty awesome, as well.
Dress Apart from the Rest:
So let me tell you why I love these Hanamiusa orchid earrings; they are made with real orchids! I stumbled across a street stall in New York last year who sold flower jewelry that was real flowers dipped in resin in some complicated way to preserve them for a long time, and I fell in love. They are beautiful and different; you can wear them for an off-beat artsy look with paint-splattered jeans, or you could class them up with a pencil skirt and pumps. They are fab for an affordable price, as well. Look for them at hanamiusa.com where they are $41.00
Happy Shopping, fashionistas :)
