Color-blocking, I feel, is the most eye-catching and easiest to accomplish pairing. Sharp contrasts like black and white, navy and white, or color and neutral are the easiest color-blocking basic for starters. And speaking on contrast, it does not only apply to color. When you have a simple basic skirt, choose a fun and embellished top to balance out the outfit or adorn with a statement necklace to remove the dullness.
If you choose a billowy top or bottom, make sure the top or bottom you choose to go with it is slimming unless you are going for a balloney looking effect, which to say the least is not flattering for any figure. I am considered petite, border-lined at all cutoffs. Therefore, to elongate my figure, I can only wear midi skirt high waisted. Any skirts or pants that hit at my calf have seemed to mute my height and just seems like something is wrong.
You might have noticed my absence recently. I have been carried away playing with four newborn puppies and will be posting about Where to Go in Phildelphia and Pennsylvania soon 🙂
