Falling Into The Blues
June 21, 2011
Summer fashion has had many neutrals, pastels, and sudden bursts of color. There has been a lot of watermelon and coral colors apparent, but what about the blues? This cool color livens up any outfit in an instant!
Take for instance these fabulous studded shoes from KVOLL. The wedged heel mean comfort when walking about in the heat, and the studs are all for attitude. Girly buckles in the front are paired with a darling little peep toe give you that extra bit of charm.
When it comes to colors like this brilliant blue, it can be fun to add a strong color somewhere else. One of my favorite ways of adding color is with make-up, and especially with the lips. I love doing a very natural clean make-up look and then adding a really brilliant color to the lips- like a bright coral or hot pink. Nail polish is another fun way to play with color- think of a canary yellow for instance. Go out of the ordinary and make an editorial look. Think of something you would expect to see “walk out from the pages of a magazine” and have fun with it.
With shoes like these, a white blouse and pair of shorts can be a simple base to start off with. Accessorize your look- throw on the bracelets, mess up the hair in that controlled “accidental” kind of look, and own your style. With summer here, curls that aren’t perfect give you that beach hair look. A messy bun done in the right fashion looks stunning. Just be sure to keep everything else polished if you are playing with messy hair styles. Keep it chic and keep it playful.
Little note: On these, if you are a half size or normally fit between different shoe sizes- this particular pair runs slightly smaller. Keep that in mind if you are unsure and go a size up!
