OOTD: Styling Shades of Blue

Shades of Blue Image

Blue is one of my favourite colours ever. There is something so cool about the colour blue. I can’t quite explain my love for the colour but I am so in love with it. There is something clean and clear about the colour blue. Many pieces and accessories in my wardrobe are blue in colour and I like it that way but I have to start to reduce the amount of blue items I do have for the sake of variety and options.. In these photos, I also have a few shades of blue in the background. Can you spot them? Lol..

I find blue so easy to style, and that is 1 reason why I wear a lot of it. Here are 5 ways you could style your blue pieces and accessories this summer:

 

Pair with White

You can pair your blue piece with white like I did in this outfit post. A blue top paired with a white skirt or pants always look good.

 

Add Pair

Or you can team up your blue piece with black for a better contrast. Denim paired with black always looks spot on.

 

Wear Stripes

Summer fashion is all about stripes, and the colour blue always looks amazing when paired with stripes. So go for it! You can draw inspiration from my outfit here.

Matchy Matchy

You can always go matchy matchy with blue. Denim on denim always looks fabulous. Just add some black pumps and you are good to go.

 

Prints

Blue always looks good paired with prints. Blue prints on a white base looks effortlessly chic.

Eyeshadow Shades

I keep talking about various eyeshadow shades and it occurred to me that most of my readers may not quite understand what I mean by highlighter shades, accent shades, contour shades and blender shades so am breaking it down right here.

HIGHLIGHTER SHADES

Highlighter shades are generally applied all over the eye area to begin with. This is usually the first step when applying eye makeup. Highlighter shades can also be applied in inner corners and brow area of the eyes. Here is an example of a highlighter shade:

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow for £17.50

ACCENT SHADES

Accent eye shadow shades are simply contrasting shades. For instance, if you have brown eyes, you can accent beautifully with green or blue eye shadows. You cannot accent with brown because you have brown eyes already, you need eye shadow colours to not blend with the colour of your eyes. The same rule applies for the blue-eyed, hazel-eyed and so on.

Here is an example of an accent shade for the brown-eyed girl:

MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow for £17

Green

BLENDER SHADES

An eye shadow blender shade is used to blend all the eye colours together. This M&S Diego Dalla Palma Duo Eyeshadow for £18 is a good example of a blender shade:

CONTOUR SHADES

Contour eye shadows give eyes definition and the ‘pop-out’ look. This is usually the darkest shade in your eye shadow palette. Here is an example of a contour shade:

“Our spring/summer campaign is a celebration of style and accomplishment,” said Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, M&S executive director of marketing and business development. “These dynamic leading ladies represent the unique and diverse women of a modern Britain. They are united in their extraordinary achievements but confident in their differences. Marks & Spencer is a democratic brand that is relevant to women of all ages and strands of life; it is therefore natural for M&S to celebrate women in this way. M&S is extremely proud to have convened such an extraordinary group of exceptional women; this campaign is the embodiment of true British style, quality, diversity and success.”
