Eye-catching Pieces in Pantone’s Dazzling Blue

On a bold piece of arm candy: Dazzling Blue goes well with gold, as in the mix on the solid pouch with gold tassel ($39.00) at South Moon Under. An eye-catching bag is an easy, elegant upgrade (and this one’s super-affordable).

Within a neutral pattern: The Rococo check sleeveless dress by Tibi ($485 at Bloomingdale’s) incorporates the blue into a beautifully chaotic black-and-white pattern, making the shade stand out nicely.

In a statement-making shoe: The cap toe on Zara’s two-tone pointed ankle-strap shoe ($59.90) adds a head-turning pop of brightness to a standard pump.

To upgrade an accessory: The barely-there bit of color on the inside of these Ray-Bans ($155 at Nordstrom) provides a tantalizing touch of the dazzling shade without sacrificing the versatility of the gray shades.

With chic loungewear: Because you can still look stylish even when you’re having a lazy day—and sweatshirts are huge right now. Block-striped sweatshirt, $39.95 at H&M.

Layered underneath basics: Paired with a paper-thin sweater or comfy sweatshirt, the flannel check long-sleeve shirt ($29.90) at Uniqlo makes for the perfect blue-laced fall ensemble.

With head-turning baubles: Instantly upgrade a minimalist outfit with dazzling gems in dazzling blue, like J.Crew Factory’s stone and bead cameo necklace ($39.50).

In an effortless hairpiece: Dress up your ’do with a lambskin leather bow clip ($16) from American Apparel, an adorable addition and game-changing accessory for your hair.

To protect your tech goodies: Your phone never leaves your side—so you may as well make it pretty. Tory Burch’s Thea smartphone wristlet ($155) doubles as a protective case and a chic accessory.

On your nails: There are countless nail colors in the Pantone pick out there—but we love Deborah Lippman’s “Lady Sings the Blues” ($19) for its combination of two of the best nail trends: texture and metallics.
