Studded with Colors – Jewel Tones

We are almost in next season (DON’T BOTHER ME, I’m not ready for next yet), and we can’t avoid the massive atack of winter clothes that all the stores show us!
Come on, you already know what fashion will bring us next, but, as this trend is my new baby love, I need to show you my point of view of…

COLOR BLOCK FOR WINTER!

Ok, Every year is the same…
Bold and bright colors for summer, tons of white things, fresh everywhere and, when winter comes, the colors get in gray shades.

Oh well, color blocking couldn’t run fast enough to ecape that “law”, so from now on the great trend are jewel and gem tones for our fashionista wardrobe. What? You don’t like it? Is that right? OK, I think is (miles away) easier to administer these new shades that those primary colors we were used to all over the summer.

As an amazing alternative to the basic black, can be worn in a head-to-toe outfit (THAT I LOVE AND COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THE ALTERNATIVE, even because with this palettes is hard to look “cheesy” than with that bold ones of last seasons).

 

 

“With names like amethyst, sapphire, emerald, ruby, garnet and citrine – these hues have the power to make you feel rich and sophisticated.
While there was plenty of black to be seen on the catwalks, it was peppered with striking colours that dazzled in their desirability, just like real-life gems.”
From British Vogue

 

 

 

 

Particularly, I was almost sad because bold colors was coming to their “Doomsday” (and still think that this day will come soon), but I really agree that gem colors are much more wearable than those others..

OK I ADMIT, I LOVE COLORS! I LOVE COLORS WITH SEQUINS, I LOVE BOLD COLORS WITH FUR,  WITH FEATHERS AND ANYTHING ELSE THAT HAVE SPARKLE! Gosh,  I said it!

 

 

 

We can still se some bites of bold tones, but not a whole outfit, just some pieces to “UP” your look, or an amazing one-piece with a dark shade in it..

SORRY IF I LEFT YOU IN THE DARK, AND I PROMISE TO BE MORE DISCIPLINED TO KEEP MY THINGS AND THIS BLOG IN ORDER!!!
I’ll try to post every week as I used to do and will always be open to your suggestions and comments 😉

LOVE YOU ALL! THANK YOU for not abandoning me during these tough times.

I Give Up: COLOR BLOCKING

I tried, as hard as you can ever imagine, to fight against this, but now need to admit:
I’M DEEPLY IN LOVE FOR COLOR BLOCKING!

(When even Lady Dior get Color Block, you need to shut up and get used to it!)

I know is a little late to do this post, even because everyone else already did it, but now there is a love feeling for it growing inside me.

After Gucci and Prada Spring shows, it became this magnificent trend that all we know. I’m not fan of too many colors or patterns together, but, moderated, is a great opportunity to wear crazy colors.

 

 

Maybe it’s just my eyes, but the color blocking do not work with any color combination. Bold pinks, oranges, yellows and purples are the tones of the trend, allowed with darker greens and blues, all mixed with a huge variety of neutral colors.
If you’re a addept, PLEASE, be carefull to don’t look like came from Teletubbies. From runaways to streets, there’s lots of adjustments necessaries to don’t look insane (or at 80’s!!!!!).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re new in color blocking, start with shoes or amazing bags like everyone else – shirts, blouses or anything like that is to easy! Then take bold color pants and as fast as you can see you’ll be wearing a head to toe full colored outfit!

Thank God that now that I get used to it, designers are doing the same for next season! Probably not strong as now, but I’ll be wearing the same!

(for me, this look Raquel Zimmermann wore at Gucci’s Spring 2011 show, is the great representant of the Color Block Movement!)
