Looks like brides-to-be, surfers and jazz enthusiasts won’t be the only ones scurrying around this summer in search of something blue.  I know plenty of fashionistas who’ll be hailing a ride on the blues bandwagon, as well.  Blue notes were one of the biggest color trends seen on the Fall 11 runways–ranging from cobalt to electric to french to turq.  Regardless of  the highs, lows, or hues of the blues, countless designers played with them.

I’m already in a blue mood, knowing these looks won’t hit stores ’til around August.  Aside from stocking my freezer with blue ice pops and planning to attend a God-awful wedding or two to take the edge off,  looks like I’ll have to do some serious white-knuckling it through the next few months.  [Photos from]
