Shade to Crave: Bold Blue

I have been a fan of blinding shades of blue for a while now and my love is still going strong. This color is undoubtedly striking, but not in that overly loud, obnoxious, kind of way that can leave you feeling paranoid and self-conscious. Unlike most bright colors, this one is actually flattering on almost every complexion and looks phenomenal set against all hair colors.

Plus, clashing is close to impossible . Pair your bold blue with anything from basic black and subtle neutrals to other bold shades like pink, yellow, orange, or red to glittery metallics. Whether it’s an electric blue dress like the Jenni Kayne one worn by Jessica Stroup, a skirt like Lauren Conrad’s bandage style or Lily Collins’ micro mini (both by BCBG), a tank, blouse, cardigan, jacket, and so on- this color is always a standout statement-maker.

Read on for my top 10 electric blue picks!

Loeffler Randall Triangle Fold Dress, $350. Fuss-free, wearable, and super flattering.

Express Shoulder Snap Sleeveless Dress, $29.50. Dress it up with piles of accessories or tone it down with neutral basics- the high-octane color and sweetly slouchy fit makes this one fantastically versatile piece.
