Fashion bursting with blues for 2008

According to, the world’s color authority, Pantone Inc., has selected Blue Iris (also known as Pantone 18-3943) as the color of the year for 2008.

“As a reflection of the times, Blue Iris brings together the dependable aspect of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Look for it artfully combined with deeper plums, red-browns, yellow-greens, grapes and grays.”

Jeffrey Campbell Love Fab And when you begin your search for the perfect shoe to match, here are two ideas to get your mind running. One is the Jeffrey Campbell Love Fab in Blue Satin (left). The shimmering fabric and delicate bow add a brilliantly deep, romantic burst of color to a feminine grey suit or skirt set.

The second is the ever-lovable Guess Carrie. I know I’ve posted on it before, but this pump deserves a second mention. Its profile fits into any environment, with everything from jeans to floor-length gowns, and the patent shine is undeniably gorgeous. On top of that, more than one satisfied owner of the Carrie has raved about its unexpected comfort ;)
