The entertainment industry worldwide has definitely got the blues! From Hollywood’s shining stars to Pakistan’s very own fashionistas, literally everyone seems to be indulging themselves in the charm of the bold, bright and uber-edgy cobalt blue.
Despite the sweltering hot summer season that often calls for calmer, pastel hues, this flashy colour seems to be ruling streets and red carpets. While some of you may not be fans of the risky neons, luckily cobalt blue seems to suit every skin tone. A head-to-toe cobalt dress will guarantee attention. However, if you aren’t the daring kind, you can simply accent your overall look with a cobalt blue accessory, wrap-around scarf or a pair of cropped skinny pants.
Keep it subtle yet eye-catching by wearing it as a top paired with white pants like Ayesha Omar or simply dazzle in the exquisiteness of the royal colour through a jumpsuit like Sanam Chaudhri. It’s playful, chic and picture-perfect. So dish out those old granny navies from your wardrobe and embrace this hot colour as your new BFF.
