Say goodbye to the plum and hello to the blueberry!

The color of the moment is rich, fabulous cobalt blue seen on the likes of Beyonce on Vogue’s April cover to fashionistas on the street. We first saw it come up during award season when Freida Pinto wore a striking John Galliano gown to the Oscars.

What is so great about this shade is that it compliments a wide array of skin types. Whether you’re a pale skinned red-head or an olive toned brunette, you’re sure to look fabulous in this eye-catching color.

Right now you can find clothing, shoes, and accessories in a shade of blueberry which is great for those of you who aren’t as daring with color.

For those of you who don’t shy away from color, I recommend a signature piece such as a coat, blouse, or dress that is vibrant and has great detail. It will be the main focus of your outfit and can be paired with accessories in fun colors like yellow or red to make it pop.

For those of you with a more muted palette, try punching up your look with a bold shoe. Here you can have tons of fun and get away with a lot more. Better yet, you can find a great clutch that can work to dress up jeans or compliment a cocktail dress.

Spring is a time to be playful with color and for a little inspiration I’ve compiled a Polyvore, below, to get the wheels turning.

Here are some suggestions on how to wear blue:
