"The New Black" for Fall

Royal Blue

— August 23, 2008 — Fashion
It’s time we all aspire to be royal…: Royal Blue, that is. In case you haven’t discovered, Royal Blue was the hottest color to hit runways this summer season, and it is not yet ready to give up its reign, in fact, it’'s leading us right into the fall fashion frenzy in a super-sexy way.

Fashion designers from all over the world are clued in to Royal Blue’s intrigue, so it’'s not hard to track down. Ultra-glam celebs and wealthy fashionistas can'’t seem to resist including at least a hint of this amazing color in each outfit they show off. This hue is so “IT” right now that you can find it in the shiny glass display windows of almost any truly fashion-trendy shop.

So what is the intrigue of this madly desired color? Royal Blue is dark AND bright at the same time, which gives it’s wearer a very rich and classic look, (like white, crème, and black provide,) but at the same time, it also shimmers with the exciting look of glamour and mystery.

Yes, trendsetters, you will be BOTH classy AND glamorous, and Royal Blue will take you there.

So the next time you’'re out quenching the need for some serious shopping, make sure to grab yourself some of this incredible color. Pair an everyday outfit with a Royal Blue clutch, belt, or jewelry accessory for a truly chic look. Treat your bod with a soft sweater, shirt or skirt in a Royal Blue hue. You won’t be sorry. (Wait until you see all the heads you’'ll turn.) And the best part? Royal Blue is definitely for YOU. It looks incredible with (literally) ANY skin tone and ANY hair color.

Our beloved Wikipedia says that this magnificent color was termed “Royal” in history because it was so loved and revered that people were asked to wear it when wishing to welcome a King. Well then, ladies, what are you waiting for? Go get on some Royal Blue and snag yourself a King (or two.) I won’t tell.
