    Any type of cobalt bottoms will work with this outfit. Try a skirt, pants, or shorts with lots of camel and beige tones. Then add a statement necklace that pulls it all together.

    Cobalt really pops when paired with citrus colors like lime, mustard, and even a little dash of turquoise.

    Try pairing cobalt with primary colors. A slightly orange shirt lessens the contrast between the blue, red and yellow. And neutral shoes keep the focus on the brighter pieces up top.

  • With a Tuxedo Blazer 5 of 25

    Black, white and cobalt is a great color combo I can't get enough of. Try a tuxedo blazer, or black and white stripes for a striking contrast.

    Go bold with cobalt by pairing it with a hot pink top, mustard cardigan, and shoes.

    A silk cobalt tank is the perfect topper for a patterned skirt in the summer.

    This skirt is a brighter cobalt than it appears in this particular photo. The muted turquoise and blues paired with the cobalt skirt reminds me of the ocean and is a great way to get creative with your pencil skirts.

    This outfit was inspired by a catalog photo. Try your cobalt bottoms with a pea green cardigan, striped collared shirt, and leopard accents for an easy outfit.

    Pair your cobalt blazer (or cardigan) with mint jeans, and pull it all together with nude and soft yellow pieces.

    A polka dot shirt and cap toe flats are the perfect fun pieces to wear with cobalt jeans.

    I'm wearing a Dalmatian dress under a skirt here. Another example of how easily black and white graphics pair with cobalt.

    Cobalt and mustard are a go-to combination for me, and it looks great grounded with a navy pencil skirt, or even blue jeans.

  • With Purple Patterns 14 of 25

    Try cobalt with any shade of purple, including a pretty watercolor print like this one.

    This is the fun, going out version of the pencil skirt outfit I shared earlier. I would wear this to lunch or running errands on a blazing hot summer day.

  • With a Mustard Sweater 16 of 25

    We've established that cobalt goes great with mustard. It also goes great with leopard. So why not mix the three together?

  • With Ivory Jeans 17 of 25

    Cobalt has an island vibe when paired with ivory jeans and a tropical print.

  • With Soft Seafoam 18 of 25
    Screen shot 2014-03-15 at 11.04.02 PM

    Cobalt plays nicely with any shade of blue — from the softest seafoam to an electric blue belt. You could also wear it with nude shoes instead.

  • With Feather Necklaces 19 of 25
    Screen shot 2014-03-15 at 11.04.39 PM

    Cobalt gets a festival vibe when paired with long feather necklaces, casual sandals, and a bold purse.

  • With Stripes 20 of 25
    560795_709777409047998_860473474_n

    A cobalt blazer with a cobalt striped shirt is an easy pairing. Try it with jeans, or with a bright yellow skirt and orange necklace.

  • With Primary Colors 21 of 25
    Screen shot 2014-03-15 at 11.10.40 PM

    There's so much color in this look. I love a bold red, yellow and blue outfit and you could always tone it down by replacing the shoes and/or purse with a neutral.

  • With a Leopard Top 22 of 25
    314992_300312283327848_1825846209_n

    One of my favorite outfits from a couple years ago. Cobalt is a win when paired with leopard and everything camel.

  • With Geometric Prints 23 of 25
    Screen shot 2013-07-05 at 3.21.18 PM

    Geometric prints pop under a cobalt blazer, and the ankle strap shoes bring it all together.

  • With a Camel Sweater 24 of 25
    Screen shot 2014-03-15 at 11.06.01 PM

    Navy stripes, camel accents, and a cobalt top? Yes, please! 

  • With Peach and Orange 25 of 25
    Screen shot 2014-03-15 at 11.10.13 PM

    Last but not least — I'm not sure I love the ladylike top with the masculine shoes as much as I did a few years ago, but I do love the idea of wearing peach and orange with cobalt. Give it a try at home!
