Royal blue is one of our favorite colors to wear, because it looks good on every skin and hair color! Laila wore a high low, black and white cheetah print top, with a striped blue, black and white scarf. I wore a black and white geometric tank top with a blue, black and white patterned sweater, and blue jeans. Wearing these three colors together definitely creates an eye catching outfit.
Leighton Meester’s bright floral outfit is perfect for spring, and it’s a great way to get inspiration for more outfits to wear out in the sun this spring and summer.
