As a major supporter of the “all black everything” rule when it comes to outfits, I’ve noticed a trend in my shopping behavior in the past few months. I keep buying blue things. Not just any blue, no. A bright, royal, cobalt blue that just screams “LOOK AT ME, I’M A COLOR” keeps finding its way into my closet. It’s like Pantone sent out a press release to me only saying “COLOR OF THE YEAR: COBALT. YOU HAVE NO CHOICE.”
I bought a blue beanie to match my blue coat.
I got running shoes that have blue laces and accents. Here’s a blue sweater I bought 7 months ago.
How did this BRIGHT ASS COLOR find it’s way into my monochromatic world? It’s too bright to be dark, but is somehow more appealing than its poser cousin navy. There should be a word for the feeling of disappointment and frustration you get when you are looking for something in black and it only comes in stupid navy.
Since this cobalt character keeps taking new forms to appeal to me, I guess it’s here to stay. FOR NOW.
