I know, I know. Fall hasn't even officially started yet and here I am already talking about next spring. But focusing on upcoming seasons is the way it works in the fashion and design worlds, and between NY Fashion Week happening right now and Pantone's spring color report announcement a few days ago, I'm feeling all sorts of inspired. In my opinion, Dazzling Blue - the official color of spring 2014 - is actually a shade that works just as well for fall and winter as it will for the warmer months. It's kind of like navy's slightly more exciting, less predictable sister. It reminds me of a nice muted cobalt, and although it's admittedly not my favorite color in Pantone's report (I'm feeling the grey-toned Paloma myself), you really can't go wrong with blue in any shade.
What are your thoughts on Dazzling Blue? If you're a fan, would you wear it now, or will you wait until next spring?
