Come Fall, give me the blues…

February 15, 2011

Normally Fashion Week for the fall season gets me all excited about neutrals and warm tones and cozy sweaters and oversized jackets. Well, now that I live in New York where all those are not only commonplace, they are necessities, I’m overlooking my eagerness for any of those due to the blissful thoughts that come to mind as I look just to spring.

Nevertheless, despite all the gorgeous, deep reds and beautiful, rich browns and camels gracing the runways currently for the upcoming fall season, I couldn’t help but notice that really beautiful cobalt blues were popping up all across the collections. I adore this color for being so timeless and elegant, yet perfectly punchy without being obnoxious. I guess it helps that I’m a blue-eyed gal, too, don’t you think?

Here are some of my favorites so far. As to be expected, Diane von Furstenberg (read about when DVF and I hung out here, btw) and Rebecca Taylor both showcased some pretty amazing pieces in the color du jour.
