That purple swag. Purple swag. That purple smoke up in my clothes.  -A$AP Rocky

I said everything is purple (swag), everything is purple (swag swag swag)... Okay. Maybe not purple, but this all-cobalt-everything look gives me life. I've been throwing this blazer (and all of my  neon ones) over all black since I purchased it last Fall. Not because I wanted to, but because there were very few good quality color options in stores.

Now, I can't swing my hair without bumping in to a window display full of vivid brights. Case in point, I walked past F21 (I HATE this store. I'm no snob, I just get overwhelmed by the racks on racks) and had a near orgasm when I seen all of the non-cheap-looking color options. I have to say these cobalt pants look far more expensive than they were. Bravo F21. I rushed home and tried them with my other blue pieces and this monochromatic banger was born.

Few color looks have the same impact as mono in a vivid color and different textures does. Color-phobes will even admit it looks haute. The potential downsides? Breaking necks and next-level swag. As you know, I'm all for Purple swag. That trill ish.
