Top 5 New Blues: Blue is the New Black

Top 5 New Blues

Don’t think of blue as a hue so different from black. Just think of the shade as jet-black’s more mellow, yet equally mysterious and often just as neutral sister. I am! This season, I’m trading my basic blacks for a variety of sophisticated blue hues, from navy (the ultimate classy no-brainer) to royal, a.k.a. cobalt (the trendy-turned-timeless color), to black and blue blends (the great compromise). True blue, indeed!

1. Diane von Furstenberg Sutra Foxy Muff Clutch:icon DVF is feeling decadent this season, as illustrated by her use of sumptuous fur (and warranted higher price point). And when Diane feels decadent, so do I. On MATCHESFASHION.com for $1,698.

2. Reece Hudson Bowery Small Bucket Bag:icon Black and blue make for the great give-and-take, especially in this brand’s increasingly capable hands. Coolly juxtaposing textures don’t hurt, either. Available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman for $675 (expect shipping by January 8th).

3. Roland Mouret Classico Leather Shoulder Bag:icon If anyone can make royal blue feel even more regal, it’s one Roland Mouret. His play on origami-inspired folds and geometry adds endless intrigue. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,050.

4. Gucci Diamante-Effect Leather Bucket Bag:icon I love Gucci best when they pay homage to their quintessential roots while injecting contemporary details. Throwback embossed navy looks fresh in a bucket shape. On MATCHESFASHION.com for $1,268.

5. Balenciaga Padlock Nude Work Mini-Crossbody Bag:icon Between the super-cute size, perky tote shape, and textural, contrasting top handles, navy and nude is a duo I’m rooting for. On MATCHESFASHION.com for $1,465.
