7 For All Mankind Skinny in Blue/Black Techno Weave,
Blue is one of the essential colors this Fall season; it has easily transitioned from the world of “haute couture” into “ready-to-wear” and is now represented widely in stores with more mass appeal.

|GUESS? Tara filter flower trouser, $89|
Offering a vast range of shades from bright cobalt to dark navy, designers suggest mixing and matching them in one look in order to create complex texture and depth. Black and blue is another “winning” combo which was all over the runways this Fall 2012.

Strongly incorporated in both clothing and accessories, blue is elevating its status from being a “neutral” to the “new black” of the season. Don’t hesitate to throw on a pair of azure suede pumps with an orange dress or to add a bright blue bag to your business suit ensemble – they will enhance the main features of your look without competing with it.
P.S. Make-up is another way to integrate blue into your style! Blue eye-shadows, eye-liner and even blue mascara are all great tools to do that. Use one at a time or all three (like I did J), the only rule is to have fun!
