Side By Side: Ice blue times two
Among the range of soft colours that are parading the streets and runways this season, one of the most intensely addictive is ice blue – so ethereal yet crisp, and the perfect refresher for your springtime wardrobe.
The key is to find just the right tones to really emphasize ice blue’s sharpness and not overshadow it. The choices are infinite, so we started with two:
Get street-ready with a destroyed pair of light wash boyfriend jeans paired against the #cutestpurseever, the perfume-bottle shaped Atma in patent ice blue. Enhanced with bold Stabbio button earrings in the same hue, with gold edging to match the gilded purse chain, the ladylike side of the look gets grounded by the graphic power of a black-and-white sleeveless tee and the black heel and ankle-strap of the ice blue-toed Canapile. It just goes to show – sometimes a soft touch hits hard as hell.
Play it daywear friendly with a black a-line mini and a chunky knit sweater over your collared shirt, buttoned to the top. Easy, simply layering (in blue tones, of course) will set the stage for the Edilania pump, which showcases the ice blue hue in a totally subtle, totally delicate undertone. Just on the edge of white, this pale stiletto is a sweet match to the structured neutral tone of the Balme handbag with shiny gold detailing.
Now’s a hot time to be an ice queen.
