The Lust List: Crazy for Colorblocking

Orange. It’s everywhere. While coral was dubbed the color of the year—orange is popping up everywhere—jewelry, accessories, clothing and even shoes. I’ve never liked orange—or color blocking—but as fashion is all about experimentation and transformation, I am currently crazy about the color. Go figure. The odd thing about orange—and as this post will attest—is that it matches a surprisingly vast amount of colors in your closet—white, navy, beige, grey, red, yellow and brown.

Additionally, while I love, stripes, polka dots, sequins, animal prints, and abstract florals—color blocking has always seemed odd to me. Color blocking—like those half-colored dresses, can look cheap and just bizarre if done incorrectly. It was all over the spring runways—including personal favorite Marc Jacobs. And, after much perusing of the Interwebs, I have determine it is possible to stylishly and affordably incorporate this fashion trend in a way that won’t go out of style, like, tomorrow.
