Cobalt was all the rage a few falls ago. It seemed like every major designer was showcasing the dramatic and gorgeous hue. It may not seem the most spring-timey color, but I think cobalt is a perfect compliment to every season. It is universally flattering, makes such a gorgeous statement, and appears fashion forward while allowing for print mixing and accessorizing when you wear it as a solid.
I love my silk Yumi Kim Dina jumpsuit in cobalt. Rompers and jumpsuits are not the easiest things for every woman to wear. I often hear my girlfriends complain that jumpsuits are impossible for them to find in the right size. I have had this problem as well, but now I think that they are becoming so popular that it is simply about finding a brand that makes the fit that works for you (as Yumi Kim does for me). If you’re petite or particularly tall, Asos has lines that cater to just about every body type, and that may be a good place to start looking for the jumps of your dreams.
Also, people really underestimate the value of good tailoring. I know its annoying to take the extra step of bringing something to a tailor, but it can seriously up the ante on your wardrobe game. Finding just the perfect fit makes your clothes look more expensive, you look more pulled-together, and your outfit generally classier. In my option if you find a good tailor it will always make the difference in how an formerly ill-fitting piece can become a wardrobe favorite!
