Color Crush: The New Blues

Blue is always a classic; it’s tried and true.  But that doesn’t mean it’s boring.  Lately we’ve been seeing two trends to spice up your basic blue:  shibori and cobalt.

Shibori is a Japanese technique of tie-dying that is suddenly everywhere. We first spotted this trend in Rebecca Atwood’s beautiful hand-dyed pillows.  Now you can carry her designs wherever you go with her zippered clutch.  Shibori dyeing is popping up on everything from sweaters to custom-made tiles to iPhone cases, all shown below.

Another way to punch up the classic blues is to add some cobalt blue to energize any room in your home or your neutral wardrobe essentials.  This Bottega Veneta crossbody bag adds a pop of color to any outfit, and I always receive compliments when wearing these cobalt d’orsay flats from J Crew.  Cobalt blue pairs especially well with gold accents, as evidenced by the fantastic Greek-key inspired legs on this Worlds Away table.
