Try The Trend: Colorblocking for Plus Sizes
Posted by IGIGI on July 1, 2014
Bold, bright colors have been a staple in fashion for the past few seasons and we love the color block trend! From fun dresses to functional accessories, this trend is an easy way to update your look while keeping a classically minimal style. The same goes for plus sizes and color blocking and there are some great options this season! Here are some ideas for how to make this fashion forward trend your own!
1. Be Bold – Mix 2 bright colors together
For the bold fashionista, try mixing 2 pops of bright colors for an instantly chic look! Blogger Alissa of Stylish Curves did just that in our Geneva Wrap Dress in Fuchsia/Coral! A tip for this look is if you are wearing 2 bright colors go with a neutral or metallic pair of shoes, this allows the colors to shine.
2. Play with proportions – Try mixing a color blocked separates!
Another great idea is playing with proportions and color blocking! As seen in these images above, you can add in bits of this trend in a really easy way that creates an on trend and timeless look for plus sizes! As seen with the first image a color blocked skirt is paired with a solid top, to create a rich color story! Try this with our Agnessa Top in Vermillion and our Belmont Pencil Skirt in Royal Purple. These contrasting colors combine beautifully to create a work appropriate look that is sure to get you noticed at the office!
3.Keep it classic – color block with black and white!
Want to try this trend but you have more of an understated, simple style? Try color blocking with neutral tones or black and white! Our Gia Maxi Dress is a great example of this. What’s great about this style too is the classic colors of this dress can be worn with anything! Add a bright pop of color with a great clutch, or pair of heels. You can also keep it simple by pairing it with neutral or metallic accents!
4. Minimal color blocking – bring in color blocked accessories!
Add drama to any little black dress – by adding color blocked accessories! Designers like Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Chanel have embraced this trend and it’s easy to see why! Color blocked accessories are the perfect way to try out the trend. Our Caitlin Earrings in Multi and Adeline Necklace in Cobalt are 2 great styles that capture the trend beautifully.
All of these options are perfect for plus sizes and we definitely want to encourage you to try all 4! How would you wear the color block trend this summer?
