Kind of Blue: Blue Accents

Hold the phone- we don’t mean blue in that weepy, tear-soaked way. Blue gets a bad rap for being depressing, but some of the happiest things on Earth are blue- a cloudless sky, for one. Don’t sing the blues, embrace them in your wardrobe. A dash here, a spot there- blue is infinitely more versatile than we give it credit for. Not only does the right shade of blue flatter most complexions, it just makes you feel happier. (The Bluebird of Happiness knows what’s up.) Ranging from navy to turquoise to cerulan and all the shades inbetween, blue is going to have a big impact on summer fashion. Get a leg up on the season and start incorporating pieces into your wardrobe that will leave you feeling good and looking blue, in the best possible way.

    Make friends, not enemies, on crowded sidewalks during rainstorms. The beauty of the Blunt umbrella is that it doesn’t have any sharp, poke-y bits. A rounded shape keeps you protected from the rain and fellow puddle-jumpers safe from being jabbed.

  • Marc By Marc Jacobs Sportif Stud Ring

    Ka-Pow! A giant hunk of deep, dark blue makes this silver-plated ring attention-grabbing. The chunkier the better when it comes to cocktail rings, and Marc Jacobs certainly agrees. Enemies beware: the raised pyramid shape of this knockout makes it a mean fighting weapon.
