A top needs to be fun and playful, because life is already tough enough. I have been digging colorblocking tops lately for that reason alone. It’s fun!
I am so used to embellished tops. Once I graduated college, office fashion became a new adventure for me. Instead of the usual button down starched shirts, I played with embellished tops – tops with sequins or other intricate designs around the neckline.
Fast forward to present day. I am tired of embellished tops. In comes the colorblock!
This top is from Ann Taylor, which is one of my favorite shops along with Ann Taylor Loft. It is made of a stretch cotton material, so it’s very light and airy. I love tops like this because it’s very easy to dress up or down.
I can pair this top with jeans, skirts, or trousers. I do think the cut of this top makes a difference. Because of the coral colorblock effect by the neckline, the boatneck illusion is created. Thus you can see my shoulders look broader (I really have narrow shoulders – classic pear shape body). And the effect creates a fuller body with a cinched in waist. I have also tried colorblocking with vertical lines, but I like horizontal colorblocking more.
Hope you are having a great month!
