STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Rock the Color Block

Style Advice of the Week

These days, it seems everyone is not content with simply one color. From color blocking to ombré hair, the monotony of monochrome seems to be on the way out. These single color outfits dominated the fall 2010 runways and fashion weeks, with only a few seasons later color blocking different colors took complete precedent. This look was easily attainable in the past months with the explosion of the colored denim trend. With the multitude of jean hues out there, it has been near impossible not to color block with these trendy bottoms.

This Fashionista pairs an adorable two-tone cable knit sweater with jeans and black leather boots. All of this is under a classic black pea coat is a perfect way to stay stylish in the infamous upstate New York winters. This dual-toned sweater may be trendy and of-the-moment, but it remains a classic silhouette and easy to build outfits around. Because the color change happens at the top of the sweater, this Fashionista cleverly paired the busy top with a simple silver locket necklace.

If you had the distinct urge to take this trend even further, I would suggest swapping this Fashionista’s blue jeans with a colored pair, such as this burgundy pair from Urban Outfitters. This not only takes the color-blocking trend a bit further, but also makes the colors in the sweater stand out more prominently.
