Cobalt blue for fall 2013 and resort 2014

Cobalt blue is a well-loved color. This bright shade of blue appears in seasonal collections almost every spring, summer and resort. We occasionally see designers use pops of cobalt for fall and winter, but it is not as common as in warm weather seasons.

For fall 2013 cobalt blue is hot. It is almost as hot as purple, and fall’s most important color, red. Cobalt is bright and is turning out to be the most cheerful color of the season. Love this!

Not only is cobalt blue important for fall 2013, the hue dominated the resort 2014 runways throughout the globe. This means cobalt blue is the perfect color to invest in right now. As summer sales are starting to hit final markdown, look for pieces in cobalt blue. You will be able to wear them now and well into 2014. After all, resort is a snapshot into spring, and if cobalt is hot for resort, it may very well have a strong place in the spring/summer 2014 collections.

Look for cobalt blue on everything from apparel to accessories. This hue is even popping up in beauty products. Nail polish, eye liner, eye shadow and mascara in cobalt blue are hot right now and can be toned down to carry your blue beauty look into fall. Watch for the hue to pop up again in beauty for resort 2014!
