Don’t let winter get you down. Blue skies ahead! According to Pantone, the softest, prettiest shade of blue, sky blue, is trending for spring, the world predictor of color. It’s a color of calmness and relaxation.
Sky blue has always been one of my favorite colors! Think of blue skies and blue oceans, and you can already feel a laid-back mood drifting in. Take a look and get an early bird to start on this fabulous spring shade.
Blue on Blue
Blue on Blue, or any one color, looks especially elegant when you can mix in some texture. For example, pair light washes jeans with a pretty sky blue blouse with raised clip pin dots. Marbled blue earrings also provide the look of texture. The cute tote adds a dash of print to make this look pop.
Sky Blue, French Blue
Sky blue isn’t the only blue predicted to be hot this spring. French blue, which Pantone calls “a stirring blue hue that awakens a vision of Paris in the Springtime,” is also having a moment.
You’ll see it mixed a lot with sky blue and white, or in this case with other colors too. This chic graphic front tie shirt with blues, whites, and touches of brown is a great way to transition into these lighter shades when it’s still cold out.
Sky Blue & White
Sky blue is a simple color to wear when you visualize puffy blue clouds on a summer day. Just add some white, and you are all set.
If you are warm-skinned with golden undertones, try a creamy white. If you have pink/cool undertones and more ashy hair, you will look great in pure white or ivory mixed with sky blue. A gorgeous blue and white scarf is a feminine way to tie together a jeans/white top look.
