Bet On Blue For Spring
Emerald has to share the spotlight. Pantone chose royal shade Monaco Blue as the color for spring 2013, and we're rounding up some great finds in this fab blue hue.
With spring around the corner, it’s time to expand your T-shirt collection, and we can’t think of a better way to do that than with this ultra-soft and comfy tee in vibrant Monaco Blue (anthropologie.com, $84). Wear this soon-to-be wardrobe staple with anything from maxi skirts to cut-off denim shorts when it’s warm enough.
Tote all your spring essentials in style in this versatile and timeless structured leather satchel (jcrew.com, $325). Not too big, but not too small, this sleek yet roomy bag is as ideal for the office as it is for a weekend out with friends. Brass-finish hardware adds elegance, and the removable shoulder strap extends to 16 inches, depending on how you want to wear the bag.
There’s no better way to say hello to a new season than with some bold, get-noticed denim. We love this pair of Joe’s Jeans skinny jeans in a vibrant shade of blue (bloomingdales.com, $126). Wear these get-noticed jeans with a pair of pointed-toe flats and an oversize tee for a sporty yet stylish springtime look.
Simple yet chic ballet flats never go out of style, and they seem to go with just about everything. We’re particularly intrigued by this super-cute pair in on-trend Monaco Blue (urbanoutfitters.com, $29). The lightweight construction makes them perfect for warmer weather, and the small bow adds a girly twist we love for spring.
Add a bold punch of color to your office wardrobe with this blue-hued boyfriend blazer (target.com, $30). Toss it on over a white or pastel tank top and your favorite jeans for an effortless weekend look, or wear it with skinny tailored trousers and some stacked-heel pumps at the office.
Belted sheath dress
Yet another way to spice things up at the office is to trade gray, black and beige pieces for something with a little more spunk. Turn heads on the way to your desk with this sleeveless, blue Anne Klein belted sheath dress (macys.com, $129). Pair the office-ready piece with a pastel or cream cardigan and some peep-toe pumps for a spring-ready, at-work look.
