Colorblocking has been popular for quite some time in the fashion world, involving the layering of complimentary colors. The color-on-color play is taking a step back though, allowing a new breath of fresh air to move through. The white-on-white trend has made its entrance like a beautiful white cloud on a clear Sunday morning. This bold look is making its own twist on colorblocking by using only the color white in different shades. It creates a neutral pairing between the pieces of apparel that provides an effortless and chic look.
White doesn’t have to be bland and basic. This alabaster-focused colorblock can be experimented with even if it’s only one color. Textures are the main focus to the eye, letting you play mix-and-match with tons of look options. Mixing textures such as pleated, quilted, or faux leather can create a beautiful flow in any outfit you create. A sheer top with faux leather pants or a lace dress paired with a blazer over it are just some of the many creations that you can achieve.
The color has become a staple piece and basic edition to anyone’s wardrobe. It’s neutral theme pairs well with any colored accessories and shoes that can add a detailed touch. This is a definite must-have this spring that will be easy to pair together. No more standing in front of your closet with your mind whirling on what to decide to wear; just grab a pair of white pants and a white top and you’re set to make a fashion statement effortlessly!
