This fall, one of our favorite statement colors is the simple, flattering, and now ultra modern blue.

When it comes to wearing the classic shades of cobalt just remember, the bolder the better. 

How to wear it:  

-Think of blue as an edgy new neutral -- use it as you would black. 

-Layer different shades of blue-on-blue-on-blue for a bold, on-trend look.

-Contrast bright blues with nudes and whites to keep the summer alive (We are in SF, right?).

-If you're wearing a pattern, keep it simple and add a single blue accessory, like a bag or shoes.
