Winter is beautiful. Landscapes are covered with white fluffy powder, peaks are kissed by mellow snow and we are either on white ski slopes or snuggling at home.
It is a beautiful season, but also a very colourless one.
I guess, the special guys of the season – Santa & Saint Nicholas – are dressing up all over in red on purpose. We need fire for those frosty days in winter!
So this season’s trend COLOUR BLOCKING comes perfectly on time!
You can block colours in a plain and basic way, e.g. you block two and stick to simple for the rest of the outfit.
Oooooor you exaggerate a little (like me lol) and colour your look and your life all over. Thank God, in fashion, there is no „too much“ right now due to the trend of „protest a porter“.
Therefore: Let’s cheer up and bring colour to Winter Wonder Land!
Total Colour Blocking
when I shooted the look, it had I guess 15 degrees.
That is, because winters in Austria can be quite warm by now
(climate change, global warming etc.).
It can happen, that we have autumn weather on Christmas, but it can also be, that we freeze with minus 20 degrees.
It’s a surprise season, just like April.
So on this day (end of November), it was pretty warm. Therefore, you’ll find this outfit in the section „Autumn time!“, not „Winter time!“, because I try to go with the initial mindset of the four seasons.
I styled a berry high-waisted culotte with a lilac pullover, which I tucked in.
Those colours are hyper blocking and I love it!
Athleisure is still a Go and though we love to wear high heels, putting sneakers on and knowing, that we are still fashionable, is a pretty cool thing.
For this reason, I added yellow Nike Air Force sneakers, which are limited edition from B&&B in Berlin
(trend pieces for spring by the way! Yellow is on the Go yaaaaay!).
They are individualised with golden shoe laces and golden piercing details. Also, they have a higher as normal sole (I guess this is due to the plateau hype). This shoe was my „Shoe of the month“ in September. Have a read to remember: http://www.lasaraleona.com/shoe-of-the-month-nike-air-force-special-edition/
Colour Blocking „en vogue“
To complete the look, I chose a babyblue blazer and a babyblue clutch with the slogan „en vogue“ on it (It is from Topshop).
I blocked the colours
berry, lilac and yellow
and defined the outfit
with a softer colour – babyblue.
Like this, you bring colour to your life, to winter and to everyone around you. Ain’t that lovely? Happy Colour Blocking!
