While I was writing yesterday’s post on color blocking, I couldn’t help thinking about an outfit I saw on Design Star on HGTV the other night (in case you’re not aware, I’m a huge HGTV nerd).
The show’s host, Tanika Ray (at left), was wearing a super cute navy and white striped t-shirt dress that she accessorized with a bold, chunky orange necklace. She was was also wearing a fab pair of tan and orange wedges (which I couldn’t find a good photo of).
What an awesomely simple way to combine trends! You know I love my stripes and the addition of brightly colored accessories is the perfect way to give this trend an ultra-modern kick–and send it forcefully into color blocking territory.
There are so many fun ways to play with this, but for now I’ll show you how you can create something similar to Tanika’s fresh look:

Stripes are a no brainer to color block with since you’re already working with contrast. The additional pop of a bright, vibrant color makes the look so fun!
What do you think? How do you plan on color blocking your stripes?
