WIW: Clothe Me in Cobalt

I have been doing a little shopping to update my Spring/Summer wardrobe and bought this cobalt tunic last week.

This is it's first outing over black skinnies, black and grey animal print wedges and topped with black waterfall jacket.

Still considering other styling options, including wearing over a pencil skirt and open over a same length sleeveless jersey dress, and over my white jeans:). Thinking this could be in high rotation in my wardrobe.

Love to know your thoughts.. Neckline is higher than I normally wear and the color is quite bold. I don't feel i have nailed the styling of this yet.

Thanks for looking.

    what's to nail? you look perfect. cobalt is a great color to integrate in a predominantly black wardrobe.

    It's terrific, Deborah! I can see it in high rotation in your wardrobe, too. It is nice to have something a bit brighter as the days get warmer.

    You look beautiful in cobalt! And I always like it paired with black - like you did here.

    How could you be more perfect?
    I love to see you in cobalt blue.

    I really like how you've styled the tunic over skinnes & I think it would look good over the dress but I'm not sure about the pencil skirt. I'm thinking the tunic might be too long.

    What is the fabric Deb?
    If it is lightweight it might work over a pencil skirt, especially if open.
    Love it over the dark skinnies, and will be lovely over your white denim in warmer weather.

    It is perfect Deborah. You always look so polished :-)

  • Lynne replied 11 years ago

    It's perfect, Deborah, perhaps your eye hasn't had time to adjust to the new colour yet? Love love love it on you exactly as you've styled it!

    I love cobalt; it's such a beautiful, rich, jewel tone - and it looks great on you!

    I think the higher neckline works with the skinny jeans.

    I love that blue on you and the shoes are FAB. Have you tried a more structured topper with this combo? Maybe it's the double drapey effect? Don't you have a striped jacket? that might look nice. I almost suggested belting, but I love the lean line of it as is.

  • Scarlet replied 11 years ago

    This looks just right to me as is. The color really suits you.

  • Mona replied 11 years ago

    Cobalt is a gorgeous colour and works so well with your black skinnies. I would love to see how you style this in different ways.

  • Karie replied 11 years ago

    love the cobalt, and the black sets it off beautifully

  • Janet replied 11 years ago

    You had me at cobalt. :-)

    This looks beautiful on you. I bet you'll find it works with other toppers as well, but this is lovely.

  • sarah replied 11 years ago

    Well, you know that cobalt is one of your colors : )

    It's lovely.

  • Krista replied 11 years ago

    You're rocking it, girlfriend! I'm not sure you could do anything else to make it better? :)

  • Angie replied 11 years ago

    KILLER look already!

    I say add white jeans into the mix :)

  • cheryle (Dianthus) replied 11 years ago

    Love cobalt on you. I think the outfit looks great as is.

    You are so beautiful in cobalt!

  • Vicki replied 11 years ago

    Gorgeous color and shape on you, Deborah! Nothing more needs to be done other than wearing.

  • Parsley replied 11 years ago

    If this isn't nailing it, I don't know what is!
    You look fantastic in that color, Deborah!

  • annagybe replied 11 years ago

    I think I'm with Jsloane in wanting to see a more structured jacket.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 11 years ago

    Love you cobalt Deborah - absolutely stunning!

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    You are all so sweet and so kind that I wanted to wear the tunic again today... but I didn't :) But it may debut at work on Wednesday.

    While I do like this outfit, I think that as Jeanne and Anna suggest I am feeling the need for a more structured jacket. I have a couple of options so will try them but I am on the lookout for a particular look in a summer weight black jacket to replace potentially two older ones.

    And Angie, I am definitely going to try this over my white jeans... it's still not quite warm enough for them though. It's a very slow start to Spring this year.

    Have a lovely week everyone.
