A Lesson In Color Blocking

We’re conditioned to only integrate bold color choices into our wardrobe when the sun is buzzing and the bees are shining. (wait, what?)

And then comes the dreary winter and we’re told to bundle up and trade our spirited palettes for dark shades of grey and brown and, well, more grey.

This is why we are so pleased to see fashionistas forging through this season by utilizing next season’s biggest color blocking trend while keeping our toesies warm and our goosebumps at bay.

That’s right, Fancy friends. ‘Tis the season to ward off winter woes with a little boost of color.

We luuuuuurve the high waisted red skinnies paired with the buttoned-to-the-brim plumb blouse. And the bag! We’re GREEN with envy! Denim Therapy.

Navy with a cobalt blue skirt. Easy and fresh. The Sartorialist.

The epitome of winterizing color blocking – variations of neon paired with a dark shearling moto jacket. The barriers have been broken, people! Portraits of Elegance.

And here we have the same idea but in reverse –  Head to toe black with a burst of sunshiney canary yellow in a 3/4 length coat. Flor De Maria Fashion.

Not that we’re biased or anything, but when you manage to flawlessly incorporate two of our favorite winter trends (color blocking AND leopard) into one seamlessly chic ensemble, we will bow down to your nude ankle booties. Chictopia.

Very Marni-esque…no? Daily Gloss.

Neon pink straight leg trousers? Don’t mind if I do. Harper’s Bazaar Online.

If there was ever a poster child for out-there color combinations, her name would be Anna Dello Russo.

We’ve got your colorblocking needs covered at the FP so stop in or check us out online to Fancify your winter wardrobe!
