STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Color-Blocking Does the Talking

Nothing screams summer like a little bit of color. Creating a colorful look sounds simple enough, right? Well, if your closet is filled with black and navy, like mine, wearing a colorful ensemble can be quite daunting. Color attracts attention; it pushes us out of the crowd and into the spotlight. Although putting yourself out there can be scary, take a leap of faith and follow this Fashionisto’s lead.

At the center of our Fashionisto’s outfit is a plain white T-shirt, arguably one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in existence. White T-shirts can be dressed up or down, match any color and reflect sunlight while keeping you cool, literally and figuratively. Our Fashionisto paired his simple T-shirt with a thin, navy cardigan, the perfect transition piece to take an outfit from warm days to cooler nights.

My favorite part of our Fashionisto’s outfit is his teal shorts. The teal is a great contrast to the more subdued hues of the T-shirt and cardigan. The shorts also add a fun and youthful twist to what began as a more mature look. To finish off the outfit, our Fashionisto opted for a pair of tan Sperry Top-Siders.

Our Fashionisto’s outfit is perfect for virtually any summer occasion, whether you’re chilling at the beach, out on the town or catching a movie. In a color-blocked ensemble, your personal style will shine and you will definitely turn some heads.
