For those who are not familiar with the colour, cobalt blue is a cool, slightly desaturated blue colour and historically made using cobalt salts of alumina. For many, you probably consider it nothing more than a trendy colour, after all, it is relatively a "newbie" in the fashion scene. However, this colour actually comes with a bit of history. Traditionally, cobalt blue was used in certain ceramics, especially Chinese porcelain and paintings. Although cobalt blue in the impure form had long been used in Chinese porcelain, it was independently discovered by a Frenchmen in 1802, and the commercial production began in France in 1807. The first recorded use of cobalt blue as a colour name in English was in 1777.
Chemical properties aside, cobalt blue as a colour has become a major colour trend in the last couple of years. One of the reasons for its popularity is because it flatters almost all skin tones and hair colour. It is so versatile in pairing and works great when you team it with neutrals or other bold colours for a contrasting effect. For a simple look with clean lines, I decided to pair my cobalt blue jeans with a custom made navy striped high-low blouse. A girl with love for colours just can't help herself but to add an orange accent colour necklace =P
Whether you want to make a bold statement with cobalt blue hues or just add it as an accent colour to your outfit, it is one of the coolest ways to make a lasting impression!
