50 Shades of Blue

Westwood, CA

Monochrome. The trend is nothing new, but trying out less traditional tones like blue, turquoise and green can make a big bold impact. And this summer, everyone is incorporating intricate prints, floral patterns and lighter warm-weather hues. Similar to mixing prints, you really have to play around with lots different shades before you pull off a winning look. Trust me, I reworked this outfit about four times before I called it quits.   

I love this breezy fit-and-flare dress because it takes a lot of the guesswork out of styling! It blends a medley of blue hues with bold crisscrossing patterns and pretty flower designs. I paired it with a light-wash denim jacket, a bold belt and navy sneakers, for a look that's oh so blue!
