Blue is very possibly my favorite color. I’ve yet to meet someone wearing blue that I thought, hmm, that color does not suit them. Blue, generally, does not clash with people’s skin tones, matches all colors of hair, and basically, is God’s color. Ok, I made that last part up, but the sky IS blue. Where blood type O is the universal donor, color blue is the universal “I’ll look good on you” color.
If you look at color meanings, or color psychology (because yes, that is apparently a thing), the color blue has a majority of positive meanings or connotations. So if you believe that what you exude and what you see can impact your attitude or general well-being, go blue! Rich blues and gold plated jewelry are probably my favorite outfit combo, and I’m definitely guilty of repeating this duo, maybe one too many times (if that is possible). While specific colors will have a moment, or be the “it” color – ie. mustard yellow, millennial pink, just to name a few – blue is always fashion forward and a popular, “you probably can’t go wrong” (because in fashion, anyone could go wrong) choice.
So if you’re like me and you find almost all clothing and accessories you own are some shade or combo of blue, you find yourself needing a statement piece to stand out. In fashion there can be that one accessory that can transform an outfit. Find that one piece to make any outfit unique and stand out amongst the crowd. Recently for me, I found that statement piece in a silk neck scarf. I’ve always admired the look of a silk neck scarf, particularly conjuring up images of trendy 1960s style outfit wear (I’ve always romanticized some aspects of 60s & 70s wear).
I’ve been a little too timid to wear one out, but recently, I’ve YOLO’d a lot of my outfit ideas and added one to a very colorful 90s style graphic tee from Anthropolgie. The color combos were great and I loved the outfit.
Not that everyone needs a silk neck scarf (but seriously, give them a shot), but find that one unique or unusual piece that can be the focus of an outfit. By simply addeing a statement piece, a seemingly boring (or, “I’ve worn this top 1000x”) outfit can be elevated in an instant.
