Every fall we expect to see an onslaught of dark reds and warm yellows–the changing leaves are a never-ending source of inspiration. But bright cobalt and electric blue? That’s a little more unexpected. Judging from the Fall 2013 runways from designers like Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg and Tibi, however, bold blue is exactly the hue everyone will be wearing next season.
From coats and fur to dresses and separates, we couldn’t be more thrilled about the eye-popping color’s popularity. It’s the perfect way to transition from the vibrant hues of the summer, plus it looks good on just about every skin tone. Shop a few of our favorite bold blue pieces for fall in the slideshow below.
