Two-toned blue swirls give off such a great vibe. I’m seeing a lot of blue combinations that look gorgeous and are a hot trend to start embracing. For this season, be ready to show off all you’ve got with the light evoking color blue. The blue swirl trend, which I call the swirl of love, is a perfect way to get into the summer mode.

Although every summer demands bright and bold colors, the blue combos I'm seeing for 2010 are phenomenal. Happy color equals happy divas across the globe. With a blue swirl experience, I chose blue hued dresses that will fool people into thinking you belong on Dancing with the Stars. Get your architectural shoes on and flaunt this hot color combo.

This first dress wouldn't just be worn by Cinderella, it would be her favorite. The Marc Bouwer Two-Tone Chiffon Halter Dress is stunning and reminds me of an ocean breeze. The chiffon is so charming that anyone wearing it will have the power of a princess. The top of the dress has a keyhole opening, but remains classy and feminine. Wearing this dress will give a womanly presence with a girly carefree attitude.

My next dress pick screams sophistication. Although it is a bit fun loving, it is elegant at the same time. The cocktail dress by Mignon is very appealing for a mid afternoon or night time event-- it’s glitzy and downright fabulous! The bead and stone cinched waist make it all the more unique and different from square neckline tube dresses. The cut of the dress is impressive, especially with the neckline in combination with a pleated mini skirt that has side pockets. This dress is a walking dream with the heavenly blue color combination.

Lastly, the summer wouldn’t be the same without a maxi dress. Just imagine walking along the ocean on a hot summer day and enjoying the breeze with Marciano’s Ariane maxi dress. This long silhouette with the tie dye effect at the hem and a knot at the bust is super sassy. Be sure to keep your hair in sleek pony tail to flaunt of the beaded macramé on the back. This dress is the most casual and laid back out of the three dresses featured-- you can wear it while lying in a hammock without feeling discomfort.

Next time you can’t decide between blue and pink, go for a blue color combination that will lift your spirits and awaken your inner diva.
