Pantone Color Spring 2014: Dazzling Blue
Well, it’s official! The top color for spring 2014 is “Dazzling Blue”. My first thought was the little speech by Miranda Priestly about cerulean blue (seen here) in the movie, “The Devil Wears Prada”.
My second thought was this dress worn by Kate when she got engaged to the Prince.
Considering how old these references are, I was surprised that such a well known and in my opinion, kind of played out shade of blue was trending.
Then I came across the above image on Pinterest and realized that dazzling blue has always been in style! No seriously, the color is everywhere. From painters tape to garbage cans, I swear you will now be uber aware of how often this color comes across your eyes. With that said, I think the color can be gorgeous under the right circumstances.
For example, isn’t this dress stunning? I especially like the sweetheart neckline. Very flattering. (here)
Here is another lovely frock. I am a sucker for a floral print, and I think the color combination of pink, gold, and turquoise with the bright blue is unexpected and yet it totally works. (here)
Speaking of patterns, check out this polka dotted dress. I have this dress in a few different fabric and I think I might have to add this to my collection. (here)
What about the scalloped hem on this sheath dress. Isn’t it a fun touch to an otherwise simple dress? (here)
Of course this is my favorite of the bunch. I would totally wear this if I had a ball to attend. (here)
Now some of you might not want to dress with so much color. I mean it is a lot of look. The good news is, dazzling blue looks gorgeous in smaller amounts as well.
You could try dazzling blue on your feet! Aren’t these new heels by Miss L. Fire perfection? (here)
Here is a spectacular necklace that reminds me of the Deco era. The turquoise and dazzling blue are perfect together. (here)
Here is a similar color combination in earrings. (here)
This beautiful blue bag is a perfect counterpart for an otherwise conservative outfit. (here)
I leave you with a few more dazzling blue options:
