Trend to Watch: Black and Blue

Once taboo, mixing black and blue is no longer off-limits, it’s on trend. As we’ve seen throughout the last style seasons, combining neutrals of all hues and shades makes for a chic, modern ensemble. Black and blue look especially fresh when incorporated in a sleek, tailored outfit, as seen here on runway star Miranda Kerr. Best of all, this trend works between seasons, reaching back into the dark hues of winter and looking forward to the fresh face of spring.
