Would You Wear an Orange and Pink Colorblock Sweater?

I’m a big fan of adding color to perk up my wardrobe during the long, dreary winter, which is why I love color-block sweaters. Over the holidays, you usually see color block sweaters in a mix of deep, rich, traditional colors like burgundy, black, white, camel, red and green. This year, it’s all about the brightest of brights!

My bold, new color block sweater in orange and hot pink is an exciting change from the classic winter shades!

Brights have been trendy this fall, this pink in particular. Remember the hot pink blouse I wore a few weeks back?

Orange and pink are trending at the moment. (Last Christmas, red and pink were trending). I think this cheery combo makes such a modern statement! As you can see, the sweater is half one color and half the other, with the color block effect on the backside.

It looks vibrant and alive, and it feels luxurious too.

Would you wear an orange and pink colorblock sweater at Christmas, or are you traditional at heart?

  1. Oh wow, what a fun post! That robe is fabulous! Congratulations! And the square neck top and color block sweater are beautiful! Plus, your dog, Bella, is an adorable addition! Thanks and Merriest of Christmases!

    1. I’m 73, but since joining your blog, I’ve found looks that suit my taste. Just because you’ve reached a certain age doesn’t mean you’ve got to dress old. You’re only as old as you feel. Thanks, keep the ideas coming!!!

  2. The sweater looks fantastic on you, Deb! My challenge is sweaters make me look chunky because of my heavier top. Any suggestions on slimming sweater-wearing?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Bridget, I’d say stay away from sweaters with high necklines such as a crew neckline and go for a scoop or v-neck, and don’t choose super chunky sweaters, or they will add to your heaviness up top. Also, a darker sweater up top will be more slimming than a bright or light-colored sweater. I hope that helps. Cheers, Deborah

  3. I love that sweater on you! You look fantastic :)
    I also love the Vince Camuto. Gray and white sweater..cozy!

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
