Color Theory: She’s Electric…(Blue)


…She’s in a family full of eccentrics.  Or maybe just eclectics.  Been noticing alot of electrified hues of blue on the streets lately and was inspired to do this story during Fashion Week.  This shade of blue works well on many skin tones.  Perhaps if you were of orange skinnage, it would be too much.

From accessories to outerwear and everything else, this is the perfect color that can be worn from the more conservative person, who wants just a splash of color, to the more adventurous fashionista who wants the world know ‘I’m here!’.

The color is as varied in shade as it is in style, so it’s hard to pinpoint what is the perfect electric blue, but you know it’s electric, when you see it.  It kinda shocks your fashion heart with a mini burst of electrical gasps and palpitations.  (I hope that makes sense.)

So here below, I share with you some intense and brilliant pieces by people, just like you, on the streets of New York.

ZZZAAAP!

Okay, okay, so these heels are a darker shade of blue, and not electric, but I had to put them in, because they’re quite fabulous.  And it’s okay to wear open toe heels with tights.  Thank goodness!
