Years ago when shoulder pads (remember them?) were in style I had a gorgeous blue wool blazer that rocked the house. I wore it it until it wore out or perhaps it was no longer cool to wear shoulder pads but it was always a favorite because of the color. I’ve got a new favorite item in my closet in this awesome bold color that makes even a cloudy day seem less blah.
Royal blue is one of those gorgeous colors that looks great on many skin tones and is the perfect vibrant color for transitioning from summer to fall. I’m a huge fan of this versatile Cape Verde Cargo Dress from one of my favorite online boutiques, Humble Chic. I’ve worn it twice this week and received so many compliments on it that it’s on my go to list for client meetings and car pooling.
I’ve been wearing this dress all summer with wedge heels and a statement necklace but now that fall is around the corner, I’m looking for new ways to style it. I’ve paired it with a waffle knit infinity scarf, also from Humble Chic, and brown boots but I’ve stalked Pinterest for more inspiration on ways to wear royal blue this fall. Some of these are expected looks but many of these are outside the box ideas and color combos that have me rethinking royal blue. What’s your favorite look?
This versatile Cape Verde Cargo Dress from Humble Chic for $39.90 is my new go to dress for fall.
