I am actually sick with a dreadful, nasty head cold (blah, blah, and triple blah), but I decided to do a post today anyways... Instead of my weekly Friday's Favorites, I'm going to do another inspiration post on one of my favorite colors... bright blue :)
--- 1 BRIGHTNESS + CONTRAST---
This color is so vibrant and beautiful, and can add a ton to an outfit! It has that more fierce-brightness, which makes it so powerful and can add so much tang to an outfit!
The ensemble above has so much interest and color- but quite honestly, without the blue cardigan, it just wouldn't have half as much power or enthusiasm as it does with it.
Here are two more examples-
-the blue crops to the left can add so, so much flavor to an outfit, and makes for a fabulous "backdrop" for the rest of the outfit.
-In the second, the blue is used as a powerful backdrop, which causes the yellow to be all the more vivid and bright!
-- 2 SAME COLOR, PLENTY OF INTEREST---
Here we see this fabulous dress without an varying colored accents- yet it still has plenty of interest and flavor to it.
--- 3 LITTLE ACCENTS MAKE A WHOLE LOT OF DIFFERENCE ---
This is one of my favorite parts about this color... That a little dash of it can make all the difference in the world!
This blouse featured above (which btw- I just received in the mail yesterday, and am just dying to wear it!) would simply not look the same without the bright, pretty blue cuffs and collar (another note- the image of it totally misrepresents what it really looks like. The colors are so much more bright in real life.)
Here's another example- this darling print on the skirt is absolutely fabulous! But without those little blue accents on the bikes- it would just not be half as interesting.
And just a fun little tool for you all- I laid out a pallet of colors that complement the hue on which this post was about-
What do you think about bright blue?
P.S- Do you have a certain color in mind that you would like me to do an inspiration post about? I would simply adore your responses :D
