Light blue, despite it being one of the Pantone 2014 colours and an absolute classic, isn't a hue that you come across on a daily basis. Unless, of course, we are talking blue jeans... It shows up on a catwalk, but hardly ever makes it to the glossy pages of Vogue and, as a result, is never as popular (read: worn to death) as, say, overhyped pink... Honestly, I find it a little odd because this shade is so versatile and gorgeous that it needs to be loved and celebrated.
I adore blue. Always have and always will. Seasonally speaking, it reminds me of a frozen park on a sunlit wintery day and the endlessly beautiful sky above it. Styling-wise, I feel that the powder blue would suit most girls: the red heads, the blondes and brunettes, the English roses, the Eastern Europeans like myself and the girls with olive and dark skin. And as far as the fashion is concerned, this winter is all about pastels, so if you are in love with blue, seize the opportunity to embrace it.
