Block Party: How To Wear Color-Blocked Fashions

You don’t need to be a geometry wiz to master the art of color blocking!

If you’re a color blocking novice, start with a multi-hued dress that does the bulk of the work for you — like the mod-flavored, black-and-white Attention shirtdress featuring 3/4-length sleeves and a covered button front. This work-friendly piece features a primarily white bodice, with black accents trimming the scoop neck and sleeve cuffs. A slim, silver-colored belt, meanwhile, accentuates the waistline, and creates an added visual division between the two-toned bodice and the all-black skirt, giving onlookers the illusion that you’re wearing two separate garments rather than a single dress.

Once you’ve selected your dress, increase the look’s wow factor with accessories that also celebrate the joys of color blocking. Start with the Dream Out Loud tote handbag, a roomy, two-toned, faux leather handbag with a black center panel and white side panels that mimic your shirtdress’s mod vibe.

Next, add an unexpected dose of color via the Bongo “Harmony” color block wedge sandals, which feature black and cobalt blue straps, and the Sofia by Sofia Vergara two-tone stretch bracelet, which incorporates enamel-filled rectangles in alternating shades of turquoise and black. When it comes to color blocking, the key is using sections of color and clever juxtapositions to think outside the box!
