Indigo Blues

June 9, 2014

Lately I am obsessing over indigo. Yeah, I guess since I named my blog Indigo Jones, it’s on my mind a lot.

I loving the rich hues of indigo blues. The shades, the tones and way the color bleeds so beautifully, creating interesting effects.  The slightly bohemian style of deep blue embroidery on crisp white cottons. The way that indigo wears and fades, becoming a whole new shade in the process.

While it seems to be a fashion trend right now, it’s something that never goes out of style.

Here are just a few of my favorite indigo photos that are inspiring me this week:

Denim gets the patchwork treatment for Spring, and the look is clean and fresh. Using varying shades of indigo, designers have created new patterns for sportswear inspired looks.

Phillip Lim mixed black with indigo hues and paired it with printed pants:
