The summer season is in full swing as students begin summer classes, head to the beach and even join the workforce with their part time jobs and internships. In the warmer months, not only do the legs come out but so do the colors! Color-blocking has remained an important trend especially in the summer months, allowing for the experimentation of color in various forms. With many adaptations, truly anyone can master the trend and make it their own since it translates to shoes, bags, attire and even makeup!
This Fashionista adopted the trend into her work attire seamlessly. Pairing her white peplum top with a fitted cobalt blue pencil skirt creating a beautiful silhouette while simultaneously looking very professional. Her nude pumps add that extra bit of height and femininity. There are endless ways to color-block an outfit. For this professional look,this Fashionista chose a bright blue which helps to exemplify her fun and vivid personality while a lighter pastel one (like this blush pink one from ASOS) can be more subtle if loud colors are too much for you.
How To: Having trouble figuring a way to spice up your summer wardrobe? Tired of your denim shorts? Try adding some color-blocking to add more summer flare to your ensembles. This trend is appropriate in most any setting, from a beach day to a summer internship. It also transitions nicely from day to night. Simply swapping out more casual pieces like colored shorts or a skater skirt for a more fitted piece like a pencil skirt adds instant sophistication to a look. If you are so inclined, try being a little risky and use multiple bold colors! When using many loud colors it is important to incorporate some neutral ones as well to balance the look and tie it all together. This can be found in anything from a bag, a belt or even a sweater or cardigan.
