electric blue – the right hue for you
blue is kind of like its own little color family. mainly because of denim which is a staple in practically everyone’s closet. everyone owns something blue in their wardrobe, it’s that safe universal color that accomodates everyone: women, men, children of all ages.
electric blue is a deeper, more intensely saturated shade and looks great against dark skin and hair just as well as it creates a lovely contrast against pale skin and blonde hair. it works.
In my quest to add more color to my wardrobe this summer while staying within a reasonable spending budget, I set out to find electric blue additions, reasonably priced, of course:
