Cobalt is one of my favorit colors. Most of the cobalt I have is royal blue - a little bit lighter and softer. Here are three outfits inspired by Angie’s great outfit formulas.

The first one is inspired by the cobalt with black and dark denim. I don’t have a pair of dark blue jeans, so I used a pair of black jeans (Escada). Black merino V-neck (Ilse Jacobsen), royal blue satin blazer (Escada) and semi polished black Chelsea boots (Tod’s). The necklace is a thrift store find. The sunglasses are from Missoni. None of the items are particularly new, some are really old workhorses (the boots and the blazer are more than 6 years old, the boots are the best quality I have owned so far). I tried to put together a little bit more modern outfit than I normally do. No scarf. A sweater and jeans instead of a blouse and trousers…. I liked this outfit. To me, it feels new. I will wear it as a casual blazer outfit.

The second outfit has the same column of black - base of sweater, jeans and boots. I added a grey blazer (also older Escada favorite) and a large silk royal blue scarf (Escada, about 2 years old). This is my version of Angie’s single cobalt accessory outfit. But then, I added a royal blue bag as well.

The third outfit consists of a navy blue jersey blazer (Escada, about 10 years old), a pair of knitted navy trousers (Marc Aurel), cognac boots (Tod’s, same as the black pair above) and a silk patterned scarf containing royal blue (travel souvenir, 15 years old). This is my version of Angie’s cobalt in pattern outfit. Then I added a royal blue bag here as well. This outfit is the most traditionally “me” outfit - my regular formula.

What do you think? Feedback, styling tips and suggestions, ideas and whatever comes to mind are much appreciated.
