Spring days call for bright, colorful outfits and a true Fashionista would take full advantage to dress in the boldest colors. I caught up with this stand-out Fashionista, who was sporting a sophisticated look by incorporating many different trends without looking overdone. Let me break it down. First, I love that she’s wearing a light-colored blazer, which automatically kicks her up a notch and dresses up the look. Secondly, the multicolored infinity scarf suits the outfit perfectly and includes hues already in her ensemble. Most importantly, all elements encompass a common theme: colorblocking.
Colorblocking is a trend that has been around for awhile and is here to stay. One of my favorite designers, Marc Jacobs, included a colorblocked sweater in his Marc by Marc Jacobs spring 2012 collection. What I love about colorblocking is that any Fashionista/o can execute it by simply layering basic colored pieces. This Fashionista layered flawlessly by wearing a peach tank underneath a yellow, sheer utility shirt. Another great aspect about this outfit is that her accessories expand on the colorblocking trend without being too matchy-matchy.
If you’re unsure which hues to go with when colorblocking, I suggest getting inspiration from already colorblocked pieces. Urban Outfitters has a really cool colorblocked boyfriend blazer. Two trends in one is an easy way to create a similar look to this Fashionista’s. Although men have fewer options, I’m really digging this colorblocked tank at Nordstrom. It's not too loud and just enough fun.
Colorblocking really allows any Fashionista/o to experiment with different colors and the possibilities are limitless. Whether you’re a minimalist or more of a risk taker, you can easily find a way to incorporate colorblocking into your everyday style
