A good way to take your wardrobe in more of a creative direction is through color blocking. That’s when you take multiple solid colors and piece them together into an outfit for a modern pop-art look.
If that sounds like more than you want to tackle at the moment, then an easy place to start is with a colorblock sweater. Here are a few I found that look cute and are super easy to style.
Most women think of colorblocked clothes as very bright and bold, but you can colorblock quieter hues too. This pretty pastel pink sweater with it’s soft slices of white and gray looks arsty in a more relaxed way.
The asymmetrical hem with the chic side slit is the selling point for me because it makes you look twice.
Push up the sleeves for a more youthful look, and add dark gray jeans and booties to show off the top. A gorgeous camel coat and bag makes this whole look uber elegant.
Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend
Oh, yeah! This sweater is for all my bold ladies who love color and a good classic print. I would wear this in a heartbeat. I love the modern mix of bright pink and orange (I own another colorblock sweater in the same color mix), and that diamond pattern is always a stunner.
With a top like this, you want to keep everything else toned down or risk looking like a clown. I’ve paired this sweater with jeans with a bit of an edge to offset the classic diamonds ( they’re cropped and frayed). Then I’ve added some neutral flats, a bag, scarf and gold earrings.
The nice thing is, if you really don’t like these colors, this sweater comes in 4 other fabulous color combos, so take a look.
Here’s a sweater with an alpine vibe that makes me think I should be out skiing. The shape of it, and the classic mock turtleneck say chalet chic to me, except for one thing.
The icy blue and white color blocking is a far cry from a nordic knit pattern and gives this fabulous sweater an artsy, arctic twist. I love this sweater, and it comes in hot pink too!
Here are a few more colorblock sweaters in stores now.
