I received the memo about oxblood being the color of the season, but for some reason I still can’t seem to part with cobalt. It’s such a lively color that translates well from beauty to home décor, so I’ve declared it my must-have color for the fall.

I love a great street style image, especially when it’s one I think I can actually emulate. This morning, Refinery29 posted a huge street style slideshow from Paris Fashion Week and our team swooned over every last shot, especially this bright-cobalt-and-bold-brow combination. Here’s how we’d get the look ourselves:
1. Throw on a cobalt dress. ASOS Pencil Dress With Tulip Skirt; $52
2. Fill in and define brows. Anastasia Brow Wiz; $20
3. Contour cheekbones with bronzer. Cargo Bronzer; $28
4. Volumize hair. Blow Up Thickening Mist; $21
Voilà! Tres chic, no?
When showing a lot of leg, be sure to moisturize!
