color block.

April 2, 2012

Get excited readers! Today we have a guest post from one of my best & most fashion forward friends, Ginna!

She’s interned with Tibi and loves Anna Wintour more than most…so check out what she’s got to say today & leave some love in the comment box!




As we transition into spring, new trends and styles become more and more prevalent. I can’t help but notice all the pops of color (especially neons), patterned denim, and my favorite, COLOR-BLOCKING!

I love color and this trend is such a fun way to mix it. Beware, you don’t want to end up looking like rainbow sherbet or a walking Mondrian!

 NO!! SO BAD!!

I am partial to bright colors, hot pinks and tangerines, but color-blocking with neutrals can look just as  amazing!

    Love this post! Spring colors are so fun! But how do I as a curvy girl, color block without looking large and in charge?

      Hey Hannah!
      There are definitely ways to successfully color block in a flattering way for any shape & size! As a curvy girl, I’d suggest looking for a piece (top or bottoms) where the majority of it is one color with a thin band around the bottom, or (if it is a top) one that the separation between colors is close to the collarbone. I’d avoid pieces with multiple large sections, especially if they come together in the middle of the piece! Also, don’t forget you can always use accessories to achieve a color blocking effect as well! Shoes, belts, scarves, etc!
