Granny-Inspired Color Block Trend

Monday, June 4, 2012

I wore: Dress worn as a Top- Funky Flair Boutique/Jeans- Marshalls/Earrings- Just Jewels 4 U/Clutch (Thrifted)/ Shoes- Steve Madden(Thrifted)

Last weekend, I attended our church family cook-out at Willis Park in Alpharetta. I was too tickled to see my granny rocking the color block trend. Doesn't she look stylish? She is truly one of my fashion inspirations. 

At 90-years old she always manages to stay on trend without even trying. Plus she still looks age appropriate. I promise you she selected these pieces without even thinking twice about color blocking. She is just that fab! And of course, it was such a coincidence that we complemented each other! Great minds think alike.

I have had this teal dress (worn as a top) for almost 2 years now! I purchased it from Kesha Denise of Funky Flair Boutique. It is one of my go-to pieces for spring/summer. I love the color and easy forgiving fit. I especially like that fact that I can wear it as a dress or a top. There is no better feeling than having a piece that can transition into multiple looks. 

Oh...and not to mention that the dress has straps too. I just tucked them in to create a strapless look. When I wear the dress as a top, I usually add black opaque leggings, but this time I opted for my cobalt blue skinny jeans and red shoes for an extra pop of color. 

Color blocking is such a bold and creative way to dress.  It is such a great way to add color to your wardrobe. As long as you stick to 2 or 3 solid chunks of color and keep the accessories minimal. You will be able to pull off one of the easiest trends this season. 

Do you have a technique for color blocking? Or do you just experiment with different color schemes?
