3 Reasons You Need Blue in Your Closet

I’ll get right into this – the color blue rules my closet.  Hands down, it’s the color I wear most frequently.  If you’re not seeing me in a feminine shade of blush pink, chances are, I’m sporting anything from turquoise to indigo, and this especially holds true in the chillier months of the year.  While I may have my fair share of summer blues, the color really speaks to me during the autumn and winter – especially the darker shades.  Why is it that I think you should include blue in your closet year-round?  Here are, simply put, my three reasons:

1. Blue looks good on everyone

If you think about it, there are definitely colors that don’t work for some skin-tones.  Orange is a color I will never ever be able to wear, and yellow is very challenging for me.  Sometimes even gray makes me look a bit zombie-like.  But blue flatters anyone and everyone – especially the deeper tones, like this navy, lace camisole from Chicwish (which has built-in padding, I might add, allowing you to easily go braless.  Major win)!  I’m not sure I’ve ever encountered someone who didn’t look spectacular in blue.

2. Blue is incredibly versatile

While some individuals still preach that blue cannot be worn with black, I highly disagree.  The color is magnificent paired with nearly any other color.  Navy and gray, sky blue and brown, even denim on denim is an example of how two shades of blue can work in harmony with one another!  There’s also a shade of blue that’s suitable for every season, making it absolutely timeless.  You can nearly consider it a neutral.

3. Blue is classic

Whether it’s a navy pantsuit, a powder blue party dress, or even Tiffany blue (about as classic as it gets 😉) blue is a truly respected color.  It’s the shade that represents the NYPD, the Navy, the Air Force, and even the President of the United States.  It’s a color that instills a sense of pride and respectability, and it is also absolutely beautiful.

I went full-on royal blue from head-to-toe for this outfit.  If you’re looking for a versatile top to wear year-round, then you must get hold of this cami from Chicwish.  While the sun is still hot, it can be worn alone.  Once the temperatures cool, a cardigan, leather jacket, or even a sheer sweater could be layered on top!  It’s only the first of many blue items I’ll be adding to my wardrobe for the rest of the year.  How do you wear blue?

    This is such a beautiful camisole! Navy is one of my favorite colors, and I think I now have more blue pieces than black in my closet! And you’re right, it does look good on everyone!

    The pictures are all so beautiful. I love this outfit. Blue is one of my favourite colours to wear. I think it’s a great neutral alternative to black.

    I have been loving blue shades lately, especially navy. But surprisingly, I don’t own much clothing in that color…
    You look great girl!

    Blue is so gorgeous on you! I admittedly don’t have a lot of blue in my closet (it’s mostly neutrals), but this post is inspiring me to get some blue pieces for fall!

    These are all gorgeous photos and I do want to add more blue into my wardrobe now! You’re so right that it’s flattering as well, I don’t think I’ve actually ever seen blue look bad on someone…

    I agree, it’s a good neutral! Though I tend to wear more black than blue, I do love a good navy or cobalt 🙂
