Building Color Blocks

December 28, 2014


"Color blocking has been very popular the past couple seasons. You would think that color blocking would require at least one thing - color. Come to Neckbreakin' Style to break some more rules and bend some minds because I took the "blocking" more literally than the "color" part. Plus, I like to think that color is all subjective and black and white is totally a color!"








Cropped Turtleneck - Zara // Colorblock Skirt - Tobi (similar here or here) // Boots - BCBG // Hat - H&M (similar) // Necklackes - Aldo // Watch - Casio

Don't you get it all twisted! I'm not in Paris. I'm not even out of the country. I'm right in New York City. I'm also in a tiny skirt in mid-December. But the turtleneck makes up for it, right? No? Okay, wishful thinking then. I had to close the year with one of my favorite outfits. For this particular outfit, I am at it again - balancing different pieces to create an ideal look. A short skirt in the winter will look best with a long sleeve turtleneck. I added more coverage with ankle boots and a wool fedora. This color block skirt was my favorite piece.

If you're still playing with the idea of color blocking, whether it's black and white or green and blue, use one color very sparingly and have the other color be dominant. For example, if you want to color block teal and orange. Wear an all teal dress and layer a ton of orange necklaces. Throw on some nude heels to leave the focus on your outfit and not your outfit and your shoes. In essence, color blocking is a balancing act where one side of the scale must tip more than the other. 
That phrase may have just been more confusing than helpful! (If so, sorry in advance!)
