Outfit Check: Powder Blue

What’s the one thing in common, between Taylor Swift and Kate Middleton? The favorite color of both of them is powder blue. And like all of us, they both love dressing up in their favorite hue! So, why not give powder blue a chance this season and you might just have a new go-to color.

Powder blue and white

Blue and white are one of the best combinations that exist. It’s timeless, classy and subdued. Give the look a little perk by choosing new variants of the hue like florescent powder blue or a more sober, baby blue.

Powder blue and nude

Almost all pastel colors go well with nude or beige, but there’s something unique when it’s powder blue with the lovely nude. Add some sparkly accessories like a beaded hairband, statement rings or even some gold earrings for some extra punk.

When it comes to powder blue or any pastel color, Kate Middleton does it best. Take her bold and leggy powder blue Jenny Packham dress for instance, the princess of Cambridge totally does justice to her favorite color.

Powder blue for bridesmaids

Powder blue has been a wedding favorite for a long time now that most people think it’s ‘too common’ like pink or the other pastel shades. But recently for her sister Nicky’s wedding, socialite and model, Paris Hilton brought powder blue back on the charts with a smashing floor length chiffon gown by Dennis Basso. Doesn’t she look just lovely?

For a casual look, layer up with different hues of powder blue. Be it lighter shades like baby blue, sky blue, corn flower blue or darker palettes like navy blue, midnight blue or even black, the trick is to get many shades of the underlying color to gel together into one look.
