Colour Me Happy, Colour Me Blue

Winter to Spring is always a difficult transition for me since my wardrobe predominately consists of black, grey, navy and green. But one of my resolutions this year is to be a lot bolder with colour and an easy way of easing into the new season is through it's most talked about shade; blue. 

It doesn't even really matter what shade of blue (though it obviously does if you subscribe to Miranda Priestly's views in The Devil Wears Prada) as blue was apparent in every hue on the SS14 catwalks from periwinkle and cobalt, icy aqua to classic navy. Particular kudos to Diane von Furstenberg who used my favourite shade of Moroccan blue which shall ever remind me of last year's trip to Marrakesh and the Jardin Majorelle. There was also denim, lots of denim. So much it may deserve a post of its own which is why you'll see none of it in my edit below. 

What you will find is a splash of green to contrast with strong, bold colour-block blues in good quality fabrics, plus holographic heeled sandals (just because I love them OK) and one 'if money was no object tee' with beautiful azure geo print. 

If you're not convinced, blue make-up is also experiencing a come back as seen at Derek Lam and Marc by Marc Jacobs. A slash of electric blue eye shadow or a corner flick with an eye pencil will do the trick. Style Note: For a high fashion look pair cobalt blue outfits with an orange lip for a high-impact colour contrast.
