Fashion Ideas for Your "Something Blue"

Wearing a teal garter isn't the only blue option on your wedding day.

By Jennie Ma for

Floral Hair Clip
A pretty way to inject some blue is with a romantic flutter of flowers in your hair. Go for a lighter shade, like this periwinkle blue, in flowy fabrics like organza and chiffon to keep with the whimsical vibe. Wear this colorful topper toward the back of your hair -- that way you'll have a hint of petals peeking out from the front and a cascade of blooms from behind.

Wedding dress mistakes not to make

Statement Earrings
Brighten your entire style with crystal-blue dangling earrings -- the crisp and clean color feels elegant yet fresh. The teardrop shape is also incredibly flattering, especially on brides with round or oval faces (long earrings elongate the face). If you like the idea of statement earrings but are afraid of going too dramatic, wear your hair down to soften the look.

Bold Heels
If you're going to wear colorful heels, you might as well make them really pop (think of all the great photo ops!) -- that's why we're loving this electric-blue peep-toe sling back. Our favorite detail is the prim little bow on top that gives this sassy shoe a sweet side.

The right lingerie for under your dress

Classy Clutch
A bright satin clutch is a chic way to go blue. The Art Deco details make it sophisticated enough for a formal affair, while the teal hue makes it fun and fitting for a beachside wedding.

Neat Nails
We aren't suggesting that you get a crazy neon-blue manicure (unless that's your style), but baby-blue polish is a subtle way to introduce that soft azure shade. Want an even more understated look? Try painting the blue enamel just on the moons of your fingernails (the half-moon manicure is our favorite nail trend of the moment).
