Kate Middleton, Zoe Saldana and Jessica Alba Have the Blues

Trend to Try? Crop Tops
Weigh in on the midriff-baring red carpet trend.
Trend: Ladies in Red
Starlets paint the town red in the season's hottest color.
Cobalt blue is one of the season’s top hues — and don’t expect it to go away anytime soon.

This electric blue has been going strong since its appearance on the Burberry and Pucci fall runways, inciting celebs like Carrie Underwood to abandon the LBD and take cerulean for a spin on the red carpet.

And while it may be the happiest time of the year, our favorite style stars are feeling blue this holiday season, with Zoe Saldana, Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba and Miranda Kerr all jumping on the bright blue bandwagon.

Perhaps its versatility is what ignited this bold blue’s popularity: Worn dressy or casual, day or night, cobalt brings an unexpected pop to any outfit — yet it still pairs well with virtually any hue or neutral.

Now that the holidays are here, cobalt is not only a fashion-forward choice, it’s also a festive one. It’s nearly impossible not to have a good time when clad in the bright blue, and, as one of Hanukkah’s signature hues, it also happens to be a modern alternative to red and green.

Freshen up your holiday look by adding cobalt to your holiday palette. Try wearing a bright blue blazer over basic black skinny jeans to a casual holiday happy hour, or pair a sexy cobalt sheath dress with your favorite heels for a fancier fete.

For totally risk-free way to try this trend, throw on a blue scarf or accessory that will give you a less intense pop of color.
