Blue a colour that is now a winter favourite for many. This cold weather has made me get out all of my blue clothing. This colour is flashy, serene yet refined. No wonder blue is having a moment. In this article I am going to discuss an outfit I have purchased which is a favourite of mine.
Different shades of blue
In the outfit below I am wearing many different shades of blue. This adds dimension to an outfit and dressing in all one colour is super simple and looks really chic. It’s also a great look if you want to draw attention to an awesome statement piece in the outfit, like I want my snake print skirt to be noticed. I have written a blog about why snakeprint is popular which you can find here.
If you colour coordinate your top and bottom in a completely different colour, you’ll create the perfect canvas to show off your favourite statement. In this outfit I managed to find a pair of boots in a similar print to my skirt which is super cute.
Blue. Immortal elegance. Blue, a symbol of harmony, balance, peace; certainly and mostly a symbol of great elegance. Among colours blue is perhaps one of the most often employed colours in custom and art history though, comparing to red, yellow and other colours already present in prehistoric ages, blue appeared later.
Egyptians are said to be the first who obtained from lapis lazuli stone powder this particular colour which they used to decorate Pharaons’ tombs.
Due to this difficulty in obtaining it blue has always been considered a solemn colour and therefore it’s been associated to wealth as well as to dresses to be worn on very special occasions. This idea went on until, in the fifties, ‘jeans’ made its appearance.
At the beginning with this term it was intended a working garment made of a very strong and tough fabric but it quickly became something which completely transformed fashion concept up to the present days. Everybody knows how blue is a ‘passepartout’ colour, perfect on any occasions, smart without being striking; many elegance and style icons loved it, let’s cite one for all: Jackie Kennedy. We have seen class women of all times often dressed in blue. It’s not a hazard then if nowadays blue, including all its shades and hues, is the colour we can’t do without. A fact confirmed by recent collections showed in world most important fashion weeks.
Snake print and chain belt accessory
I have written a whole article about why the snake print is so popular which you can find here.
The snake print is so popular that most women and girls are purchasing this in almost every shade and blue is certainly no exception to this rule. I am wearing a racer skirt. This racer skirt is blue snakeskin PU mini skirt with chain belt detail.
Chain belts are cool versions trimmed with leather, adorned with charms, and even strung with seashells—and there are lots of amazing designer vintage styles that are on the market. The trend isn’t exactly new and actually has roots in the 90’s. Since pieces from the decade are making a resurgence in a big way, it’s no surprise that the trend is coming back into play. It just adds variety to my outfit and makes me stand out.
Ragged Priest Jacket
This blue jacket I am wearing from the Ragged Priest has been my favourite purchase over the last few months. It is super comfortable and really sweet.
