Colour trend: Blue (and new hair)

Spring blues, Fab Friends. Ironically, after posting my winter photos I had just decided I needed more red and white and who-knows-what else -- something light and bright and not blue in my closet. But these blues are so tempting, I just know I am going to going for some. You can't fight your signature colour, I guess. :) 

1-3: Veronica Beard. Blues from denim to soft powder...
4-7: Vince. Soft sky blues, dusty periwinkle blues. 
8-9: Eileen Fisher: Royal blues, teals, a few dusty periwinkles.
10: Helmut Lang!! (Yes -- even Helmut Lang is doing blue this year!!) Robin's egg, royal, and other things in between.

I went "window" shopping after my haircut. No purchasing, just scouting. You can't really tell but the style is a bit different -- longer front fringe and a very short back on nape but a bit of volume higher up. Will try to get better pics later. I can wear it sideswept or straight down or tousled or maybe flat ironed (didn't try). Colour is growing out...I'm also in blue, by the way, although it looks black.

    Killer look with those wide cropped jeans. Great hair! And what's a girl to do -- when your signature colour is out in abundance, you've got to take advantage. I love the soft blue with the black and white stripe. Or maybe it's a navy stripe. Regardless, it caught  my eye. Sounds like you had the blues in a very enjoyable way today!

    Love the hair ( was expecting to see you in blue hair) and the blue items. Why not go for the blue while it is available? It is a great signature color. You could add shades of blue that you like but do not own or are scarce in your closet.

    Your hair is fabulous. I like your outfit too.
    I like the bright/concentrated blue in the EF.

  • Gigi replied 11 months ago

    Oooh, I can only imagine how tempting all that blue must be! I don't look good in blue, so I have a built-in deterrent, ha.

    Love the hair. Can't wait to see more pix after you start playing with it!

    Lovely pictures and so many blues to choose from. The VB jacket is yummy! Gorgeous hair and good to have it cut in a way that helps you to style it differently.

    Hair looks good and that’s a great outfit!

    Your pics make me think a mix of blues would be nice to do. Hmm.

  • Bijou replied 11 months ago

    These summer blues are beautiful and fresh, I have really missed these colours over the last few years, I love these blues that look wonderful with denim and white.

    Blue is such a great colour, navy is wonderful for winter and light blue is like the sky on a summer's day. Your hair and outfit are fantastic.

    Nice to tweak a haircut from time to time,prevents boredom from setting in and it looks great as does  the outfit.Very chic for shopping .

    Looks like it’s your season! Your hair looks fab.

  • Runcarla replied 11 months ago

    I posted this about two month ago.  You’ve just confirmed my suspicion, Suz.

    Sounds like you’ve got the spring make-over itch.  I LOVED those magazine special makeover editions that came out in the spring, but haven’t seen them in forever.

  • suntiger replied 11 months ago

    It seems to me that blue is always in abundance, especially in spring- though could be cause I live in a waterfront tourist trap!

  • Style Fan replied 11 months ago

    Lots of beautiful blues coming out.  I love your new hair.  Very edgy.

  • Preppy Pear replied 11 months ago

    Suz, your hair always looks fantastic, but I really like the longer bangs. Really nice subtle change to your signature pixie.

    I want to spend all the money on that patterned VB jacket - yum. I was just online last night searching for blue blazers.

  • Helena (Torontogirl) replied 11 months ago

    LOVE your outfit Suz and the hair looks fab. Our local mall is teeming with blue ... Doesn't take retail long to jump on that trend, does it??

  • lisa p replied 11 months ago

    I really like your latest hair cut - the longer bang is nice.  And I'll have everything on that Helmut Lang rack please and thank you.  

  • AviaMariah replied 11 months ago

    I'm with you - don't fight the blue!  Plus, there's so many shades that one could wear only blue and still have lots of variety.  

  • Janet replied 11 months ago

    Yay for all the blues! You know I’m right there on board with you.

    Your hair looks fantastic — I like the longer front. And why don’t I love wide crops on myself when I like them so much on you??

  • kellygirl replied 11 months ago

    More love for the blues. I'm hankering for warmer weather but we really need more rain. Your hair cut is lovely--it frames your face so well. Your stylist does a great job!

  • Angie replied 11 months ago

    Hair looks KILLER as always. Loving those little black streaks!

    No, you can't fight your signature colour - and YES to milking it. I'd be disappointed if you didn't, Suz :)

    Almost everything that I ordered this month was blue...

  • mtnsofthemoon replied 11 months ago

    Your hair looks amazing and sounds so versatile!  Those pics of the various blue and white (my fav) look extremely tempting.  I love the adorable light blue blazer by VB - But have told myself "no more blazers".  hahahaha.  Thanks for "scouting" for us.   

  • The Cat replied 11 months ago

    Yes, it looks like a really great SS season for us who love blue. :-)

    Your hair is fab. The stripes are eye-catching, and I imagine that an outfit in various shades of blue would be a gorgeous match.

  • Firecracker replied 11 months ago

    I love your hair, and your outfit! The blues are a treat. Wow, such a lot of them! That Veronica Beard blazer is stunning.

  • Mainelady replied 11 months ago

    I love your hair!  Like the longer fringe and the hints of black. I think the spring blues are calling your name. They all want to be a part of your signature look.

  • cindysmith replied 11 months ago

    Love the hair, need all the blues :-)

  • shevia replied 11 months ago

    Hair is fantastic along with the whole outfit. Those blues are calling your name.

  • tamjotn replied 11 months ago

    Your hair is exactly how I would like mine to be in an ideal world. 
    The wide leg jeans work excellently with your whole aesthetic. Blue is my favorite color but I don't always know which shade is best for me. I'm interested to try some different shades this season!
