The Best Color Block Summer Accessories For Men & Women

Color blocking is often described as taking opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting color combinations. The most famous case of this is the artist Piet Mondrian's work featuring a color block pattern of red, white, blue, yellow, and black. Several decades later, fashion legend Yves Saint Laurent designed an iconic collection referencing Mondrian's work during the 1960s.

Fast forward to current times and the color block trend has come back in full force. A lot of designers have been referencing the iconic pattern in their collections for the past few seasons with a modern spin. Instead of just using opposing colors they are also now using hues from the same color family showcasing a softer take on the trend. 
Today I am featuring some of my favorite color block accessories for men and women. Why accessories? Personally, I have always felt that the easiest way to try out a bold trend is through accessories. Once you feel comfortable with that …

Giorgio Armani Showcases Classics With A Twist With His SS/2018 Collection

Giorgio Armani is one of those designers and brands that are well known all across the world. He is most famous for his classic designs with a nod to the past. Any man who buys one of his suits knows how good of an investment it is. He designs the kind of suits that you can pull out of your closet year after year and look good and presentable. His clothes never look dated. That type of aesthetic can be good and bad. Good for the reasons stated above and bad because from a fashion standpoint it can become a bit repetitive and boring. Since he doesn't focus on trends as much there is nothing new to look at, so I usually do not highlight a lot of his collections on my blog because it would look like I am showcasing the same collection year after year, but this year he stepped out of his comfort zone and added a bit of color to his collection which he hardly ever does which is more on trend with what is going on currently in men's fashion.

ZAC by Zac Posen Spring 2018 Collection Proves His Secondary Line Is Just As Chic As The Original

If you are a fashion lover then you may already know who Zac Posen is. Not only did he make a huge splash on the fashion scene with his iconic collections but his designs have also graced the backs of Hollywood trendsetters (Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman, Rihanna, Kate Winslet, and Claire Danes) and fashion it-girls such as Naomi Campbell and Stella Schnabel. He is also well known for being one of the judges on the fashion reality show Project Runway for several seasons. 
Since the success of his first eponymous line, he has launched a secondary line ZAC by Zac Posen which I am showcasing today. I was loving the offerings he designed for his SS/2018 collection. Sometimes with secondary lines, I feel like a designer usually slacks off by offering up lackluster clothing or throwaways that are way too derivative of what they offered in their main collection. He did not fall into this trap instead he delivered pieces that are wearable, chic, and flattering on a variety of different …

The Colors Of Summer

" Summer, summer, summertime ... ", man I love that song by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince (Will Smith for the younguns) during this time of the year when the sun is shining and the temperature is rising. Summer is the only season of the year that I truly love. I especially love seeing everyone shedding their neutrals and rocking bright and colorful clothing. I tend to wear bright colors all year round but for some reason when it starts to get really warm outside people shake off their inhibitions and start wearing vibrant hues that make me smile. 

Today's outfit of the day perfectly captures what I am talking about. I was able to fit in a quite a few colors by showcasing a maxi dress that featured a color block design. Since it is hot where I live I made sure to include some sun protection with a cute straw hat, sunnies, and sandals. I kept the makeup light and subtle with a neutral pink lip gloss and an ombre blush.

The Prettiest Cami Tops For Summer

When I think of a cami top what usually comes to mind is pajamas or undergarments. I generally do not think of camisoles aka camis when I am pondering what is currently fashionable because it has always seemed like such a basic item. The thought of them would bore me to tears and I always considered them an afterthought. Lately, though, I have noticed a lot of pretty cami tops in the stores that go beyond your basic neutrals. These pretty little tops are not meant to be hidden under a sweater or jacket but they are designed to shine on their own.
