MCLV Style: Black and Blue

Black and blue is one of my favorite color combinations. Right after black and white. It’s a great way to add a pop of bold, eye-catching color without feeling like you’ve dressed up like a highlighter.

I have a tendency to default to head-to-toe black on a regular basis, especially on weekends, and then I feel boring. Or I feel guilty because I have closets filled with colorful and printed pieces, just hanging there, sad and neglected.

So when I’m not in the mood for anything too over-the-top, I’ll reach for black and blue.

What’s great about this color combination is that you can find whatever shade of blue works best for your coloring – Anything from navy to royal to baby blue!

MCLV Style: Black and Blue

There are a few color combinations that I return to time and time again. Next to the oh-so-classic black & white, black and blue is a favorite of mine.

Why?

Not only is it infinitely flattering, but black & blue is easy to style since you can combine any shades of blue from sky to cobalt with your favorite black pieces!

When I saw this flirty little dress I knew it would be easy, and fun, to style. It’s incredibly comfortable and will be equally flattering with my favorite Loeffler Randall ballet flats during the Summer as it will with my Nine West Over The Knee Boots and layers for Fall and Winter.

Versatility can’t be beaten!

For its inaugural outing I paired it with an easy Rebecca Taylor blazer, my favorite ankle boots, and the new love of my life – This gorgeous Givenchy Antigona Satchel.

Don’t worry – I’m going to devote an entire post to her! <3

Do YOU like black and blue as well?
