    Earrings

    A pair of drop earrings made of glamorous topaz and diamond stones is a chic way to add blue to your look. If you aren’t looking to go that bold, scale it back with some snappy studs.

  2. Veil

    For the unconventional bride, find a veil made of dusky, light-blue tulle. It’ll give your bridal look a whimsical yet edgy vibe.

  3. Clutch

    Stash your day-of essentials in a colorful blue clutch. One of the perks of this shade is that it’s completely versatile. Choose a clutch in a rich royal blue with crystal details for a ballroom wedding, or find one in aquamarine with pearl accents for a beachside affair.

  4. Bouquet

    Sprinkle a spray of blue posies, anemones, hyacinths or hydrangeas into your bouquet. Other floral colors that look good with blue: white, yellow and pink.

  5. Shoes

    Hike up your skirt to show off flirty blue heels for a great photo op, or pair them with a mini for your reception outfit. Looking for something a bit less obvious? Try blue-soled shoes.

  6. Cover-up

    A little blue pashmina could be your practical yet stylish “something blue.” Add some coverage during your ceremony or wear it as a statement piece for the reception.

  7. Lingerie

    Save your “something blue" for your new hubby only. Find a lacy lingerie set in a romantic cornflower blue. Or choose one with blue accents -- like sweet little bows or sassy blue straps.

  9. Bridesmaids

    Have your best friends represent the old tradition by asking them to stand next to you donned in navy dresses. A major plus to this plan -- none of your maids will complain about wearing the universally flattering shade.

  10. Hair accessory

    Choose either a cobalt color for a city-chic Art Deco style, or a romantic blossom of periwinkle blooms for a garden affair. Clip this azure accessory to the side of your head, directly above your ear, or place it askew on the top of your chignon for a look that’s pretty but not too perfect.
