Black is a staple in all of our wardorbes.
We dress it up, we dress it down, and the best part is that matches with everything.
Of course nothing will ever replace that LBD, but black is our go to colour no more.
Instead of relying on black, try mixing up your outfit with a splash of blue.
For a night out, replace your boring black heels with bright blue pumps. You’ll be surprised how easy blue is to match and how much more playful your outfit will be!
For work, try wearing a navy blue blazer instead; navy is softer and less harsh than a sharp black blazer. It’s also fun to change up your traditional power suit with a blue blazer paired with khakis or a beige skirt.
Or if you’re still a student like me and you just need to throw on a quick outfit, pair that navy blue blazer with jeans, then you’ll look smart and fashionable at the library.
Once you realize the power of a great blue piece, you’ll stop relying on your simple black items. Right now my navy blue blazer and my bright blue pumps are two of my favourite most versatile pieces in my closet.
If I haven’t convinced you to jump into the sea of blue just yet, then take a peek at the photos below and I’m sure blue will become your new favourite colour.
The shoes are from ALDO, the shorts are from Aritzia, the top is from Urban Outfitters, the bracelets are from Aldo and Pandora, and the lipstick colour is Eden Rouge by MAC.
