The colorblocking trend is still in full force and I am thrilled about it. Colorblocking is one of those trends that anyone can pull off easily and, if you pick colors that are subtle enough, you can wear colorblocked pieces well past their “prime” trendy season, because they can function as an alternate pattern style. Any trend or pattern that’s strong enough to wear from season to season is one that I can get behind.
I recently checked out the IGIGI Evey Plus-Size Colorblock Dress in Black/Royal (for more info, check out the blog post about plus-size colorblocking tips) and was really impressed with how IGIGI mastered the colorblocking trend with their garments, so when the IGIGI Carissima Plus-Size Dress in Malbec went on sale, I quickly snatched it up to capitalize off the similar look and the great price.
The asymmetrical cut of the dress is incredibly flattering and stretches across the body giving some instant slimming power to the waist and hips. The IGIGI Carissima Plus-Size Dress in Malbec has a pretty standard cut, which makes it perfect for the office since it has a higher neckline and a slightly longer hemline. However, the asymmetry and the colorblocking makes it trendy and flattering, giving it that special oomph factor while emphasizing your curves.
