Colorblock Without a Thought: Eliminate The Guesswork Of Mixing And Matching

Large Editorial Image


March 17, 2011

I’ve always been a fan of simple solid pieces that are easily paired, layered and tucked together. This season’s colorblock trend makes it even easier with dresses, colorblock shoes, jackets and swimsuits that mixes complimentary colors so you don’t have to do any of the guesswork. All you need are these easy pieces:

This Camilla and Marc Salerno Bandeau Bikini ($189) makes the colorblock trend easy and features a knot detail and detachable halter strap.

This scoop-neck, V-back Marc by Marc Jacobs Splashed Colorblock Jersey Tank ($128) features multicolored stripes and subtle tie dye and is perfect for work – with a blazer – or play.

Try the trend in a more subtle way with this Laugh Cry Repeat Panel Tank ($88). The luxe silk panel tank screams Spring.

For a little more movement and definitely more drama, this BCBG MaxAzria Colorblocked Dress with Tulle ($258) is complemented with sweet airy pink tulle along the hem.
