Spice up your fall wardrobe with neutral pieces infused with bold chunks of color. The geometric symmetry of colorblocking provides a cool and modern aesthetic, dividing each piece into eye-popping panels and providing a fresh and fun way to be playful, without looking childish. It is the perfect way to cure 'hue hesitation'— a common condition when one longs to try out a bright color, but is unsure of how to fit it into her style appropriately. A colorblocked piece affords you the right to experiment with various wild and crazy shades without risking your entire ensemble. Perk up a basic black skirt with colorful peek-a-boo folds, add an unexpected wash of blue to an otherwise neutral bag, or make a statement in swaths of vibrant, criss-crossing jersey. For more toned down pieces, simply revel in the elongation that a charcoal-paneled tunic or a black and white halter provides. However you choose to block off your wardrobe, make sure you wear it with a confidence that will appreciate when all those heads start turning!
