RM Style Finds: Color Blocking – Blast from the Past

You know what they say…what goes around comes around! Right now there’s a revival taking place of the 70′s “color blocking” trend.  So, for all of you gals who love shopping for vintage clothes you may just find one of these bold and dramatic pieces at your local thrift shop or in your mother’s closet.

Milly: Nessa Combo Dress – $330

I love this little Milly dress. It completely captures the retro-sophisticated style of color blocking. Sport it with a pair of black or neutral pumps. Don’t forget to do-up the gold faced belt with a simple gold bracelet!

Ann Taylor: Colorblock Shell – $78

What a great Ann Taylor top! This loose tank can be thrown on with a pair of jeans and a cardigan for a comfortable-chic look. Or, tuck it into your favorite pencil skirt!

BCBGMaxazaria: Pleated Colorblock Stripe Skirt – $178

A casual, yet sophisticated piece, this BCBG free-flowing skirt will be a great day to day pick. The color combination leaves you with countless options for mixing and matching tops and accessories…allowing you a few more wears!

Kate Spade: Mansfield Lottie – $425

If you know color blocking, you know Kate Spade. Known for her vibrant colors and neat color-print combinations, check out Kate Spade’s collection (handbags and clothing!) for some more color blocking pieces. This shoulder bag is definitely a more neutral-toned color block piece, but its contemporary character will definitely spice up an ordinary outfit!

Hannah loves all things fashion and you’ll find her on most weekends perusing antique stores for vintage jewelry in upstate New York where she attends Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Hannah uses fashion as a means of self-expression and enjoys the opportunity to highlight a different part of her personality every morning when she assembles a new outfit. Her style is “effortless chic” coupled with comfortable classic clothing spiced up with a vintage piece or two! Hannah came to RebelMom via her sister, Elysha, and now contributes to RM Style Finds & Deals as an outlet for her fashion interests and creative flare!
