colorblocking

Happy Monday, y'all! Let's dive right into today's blog post on :: COLORBLOCKING. The colorblocking trend has been around for awhile now and you've probably seen it in dresses, shirts and more. So let's put a twist on the typical trend with DIY colorblocking. {click on the links throughout the post to shop my look piece by piece}cb6I paired a radiant orchid tee with some bright peachy coral pants. Choose colors that are close in tones to one another, but different enough to create a big contrast. For example, choosing warm colors for both top + bottom like I did here.cb1These Vince Camuto Side Zip Ankle Pants in Papaya are perfect for work + play. A flattering tapered leg and breathable fabric make them a year-round staple.

You can score my JCrew radiant orchid tee {on SALE!} here. It's soft and comfy and perfect for dressing up and down. You can also add in a pop of opposite tone {in this case, a cooler tone with a chartreuse scarf} to finish off the outfit if you're feeling bold.

When you already have so much color, stick to basic accessories. White statement earrings, a long tassel necklace and my favorite stacking bangles are perfect compliments.

And of course, few of my outfits are complete without a subtle pop of leopard. My skinny leopard belt is a wardrobe staple and I added it here for a little break in between the two colors.

So play around with a little DIY colorblocking in your closet! You'll be surprised at what you can put together with what you already own. We'd love to see your looks! Tag us on Instagram @lifestyledatlanta and hashtag #diycolorblock
