STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Color-Blocking Is Here To Stay

Style Advice of the Week

Color blocking is the art of making a boring outfit look fabulous. My favorite thing to do when I’m looking for something fun to wear is to combine two colors; it makes the ensemble more interesting. There are endless ways to color block but one of my all time favorites is to color-block with a skirt and simple top. A way for Fashionistas or Fashionistos to make an old outfit look new is by adding a little pop of color to just a simple T-shirt or skirt. This fall the color scheme is perfect to find new and bold color combinations.

This Fashionista totally caught my attention with the beautiful yellow skirt she was rocking. She was wearing a beautiful long sleeve shirt that had cutouts covered by a piece of mesh fabric. The exciting thing about her ensemble was that she was simply wearing a black shirt and jacket, but the skirt was totally the center piece of this outfit. I really loved how she also made a statement with her absolutely fabulous studded flats. The cool thing about the Fashionista’s outfit was that she could also transition this into a night time outfit by swapping the flats for a pair of heels or booties.

My favorite way to color block is to find a bold colored skirt and keep in minimal in the top with either a black or white tee. NASTY GAL has a variety of skirts to choose from, which are perfect for a casual evening or a night out in the town. Another awesome place to shop for cute bold skirts is LuLu’s. Let’s make a huge statement this fall and color block our way into winter.
