Add Some Color

Color is having a major moment this spring/summer. Designers like Jil Sander, Calvin Klein and Dior Homme sent explosive colors down the runway. You might remember the tri-color blazer at Jil Sander I wrote about for the Color Me Bad post. The trends that Calvin Klein or Givenchy create for the season set the tone and trickle down to high-street stores like Zara, Club Monaco and H&M. 

Club Monaco is known for their signature color palette of black, white and grey- in addition to featuring minimal pops of color. This season they are offering colorful pops of yellow and electric blue; take these colors and pair them with your basics, mix and match, which is the perfect way of staying on trend without looking like a fashion victim. 

The color of this cardigan is an easy color to wear and is flattering on everyone no matter the skin tone. Perfect with a white collared shirt and trousers or shirtless over a pair of jeans. Keep in mind; you should never take the looks designers' send down the runway too literally. Although it would be amazing to see someone at the DMV in a tri-color Jil Sander blazer with matching red trousers, but really whom am I kidding?

Cardigan $129, White Collared Shirt $89, Blue Pin-stripped Trousers $129, and Jeans $129 all by Club Monaco.
