Cobalt blue is one of the hottest colors right now — it's even made its way onto Hollywood's favorite blazers — and now celebrities are starting a love affair with cobalt in leather form.

If you love leather and you love cobalt, why not combine them for an even stronger fashionable impact? Shop our favorite cobalt leather pieces below.
Jessica Alba isn't the only one digging the cobalt and chartreuse trend — Rachel Bilson worked the bright color combo while appearing on The Marilyn Denis Show in Canada. She paired a silk cobalt 3.1 Phillip Lim tank ($350) with chartreuse ShoeMint peep-toe t-strap platform sandals, then completed her look via black wide-leg trousers by The Row. Get in on the popular color combo via similar pieces below, including Rachel's exact top, or don cobalt jeans with a chartreuse tank for a more casual approach.
Over the weekend, while spending quality time with daughter Honor in LA, Jessica Alba created a whole new fresh color combo we all must try this Spring and Summer: chartreuse and cobalt. The actress topped her cobalt maxi dress with this Theonne chartreuse cropped cardigan ($258), then matched things up with blue ankle-strap platform Ralph Lauren sandals. A crisp white Tory Burch fedora added a resort feel, while her colorful Simone Camille bag ($975) lent an exotic vibe. Get Jessica's exact Theonne chartreuse cardigan to top over your cobalt maxi, cobalt jeans, or cobalt shorts. Then for an office-appropriate look, wear your chartreuse cardigan with a pair of chic wide-leg cobalt trousers from Asos ($70).

Kristen Stewart stole the show on the Kids' Choice Awards orange carpet. She worked her signature red-carpet silhouette — a short, fitted dress — in a cobalt lace Stella McCartney number from the Fall 2012 collection, which she wore with matching Barbara Bui pumps. While this loud monochrome look isn't ideal for every day, you can draw inspiration from it by adding pops of cobalt to your color palette. If you're color-shy, you don't have to wear it head to toe like Kristen did. You can sport one or two pieces, like a cobalt lace tee with cobalt flats, or a cobalt blazer to liven up an all-black ensemble. Shop our favorite cobalt pieces below to revitalize your wardrobe like Kristen did on the Kids' Choice Awards orange carpet.
Ascotfriday is showing off a new hairdo — super cute — and fresh outfit today. I'm smitten with her spunky cropped cobalt jacket. It injects fresh vibes to her skinny jeans, and I also fancy her haphazardly tucked-in tee. She got the blues . . .
Here's what she has on:
Congrats to ascotfriday!
Everyone else, submit your looks, and I might feature you on FabSugar!
I love cobalt. I'm usually attracted to shades of blue but cobalt definitely calls out to me. But I don't know if the black sash hanging down the front is unique and forward, or just plain distracting. What do you think ladies?
Annacoheadpiece is crazy for cobalt, and I'm crazy for her entire outfit. Everything from the shoulder-padded top to the hip-hugging skirt to the severe studded belt is top-notch. And the fit is flawless. I wouldn't change a thing.
