Final Touch: Block Party
Make a colourful statement and flash your brights this fall
There’s something comforting about wearing all black: It’s flattering and ultimately foolproof, but then again, it’s not exactly fun. So while the end of summer might seem like the right time to start falling back on sombre hues, we say turn up the colour for an unexpected take on between-season style.
With colour mash-ups making a splash on Fall 2015 runways including Céline, J.W. Anderson, Rag & Bone and Fausto Puglisi (to name but a few), feel free to take a “more is more” approach this season when it comes to mixing shades.
A two-tone pump is the perfect place to start, especially one that combines punchy fuchsia with a lacquered red block heel. Then it might be tempting to let your statement shoes do the talking, but why keep the rest of your outfit simple when you can speak volumes in other vibrant shades? The best day-to-play outfits are a blend of sophistication and sass, so dare to be bold in your choice of palette while keeping your silhouettes on point. Anchored by a classic white blouse, a cobalt-blue pencil skirt beats any neutral alternative by a long shot. Pull it all together with a structured purse that plays off a colour from your soles, and you’ll be putting a fresh spin on colour-coordinated dressing straight through the fall.
