Cobalt vs Fuchsia - Runway Looks

Two of the hottest colours for this summer, cobalt and fuchsia. It still only feels like the start of summer here in Melbourne, it has taken a while for the weather to warm up. So these bright colours can help us feel like it's actually summer!

Both shades made appearances on multiple runways for Spring/Summer 2012. Here are some of my favourites.

I seriously love Elie Saab. His designs are amazingly feminine and the bold colour makes them even better. Love the lace detailing, sequins, sheer fabrics and belted waists.
Blake Lively wore this Elie Saab suit (look 37) to an event earlier in the month.

DKNY RTW spring/summer 2012 collection included these pieces in various fuchsia tones.

Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Within the mix of white he used many different colours including one cobalt look and one fuchsia.

I love this slightly darker shade of fuchsia. If you're not crazy about colour, wearing one bold piece with black and white is a great way to incorporate some brights without it being too intense.

I hope you all had a great Christmas and have an amazing New Year! I hope I have more time for blogging in the New Year. Working in retail around Christmas has been pretty crazy. I want to do an outfit post soon inspired by these cobalt and fuchsia looks.


  1. I'm so glad you shared these, I almost forgot it's summer there :) I think these are two of my favorite shades. That's so much for sharing and I'm a huge fan of the cobalt blue jumpsuit. It's so chic.
    I hope you have a great Christmas too

  2. ah these are my favorite colours at the moment.. i wonder why? hehe. hope you had a merry christmas and you're not exhausted from crazy christmas hour trade! xxx

  3. I can't choose because I love them both :)


  4. In love with the Saab dresses with the slit up the thigh. Utter perfection!!
    Not so much a fan of fuchsia on myself but I've seen it on others. I also like that burnt orange colour that's making its rounds on the catwalk :)



thankyou to everyone who takes time to read or comment.
I always appreciate the love! x
