Stepping out wearing one color head-to-toe is a bold statement: one that can give you the confidence to dare to do what you want. A simple outfit is more dynamic when every element is a shade of the same color, so start with a favorite piece, such as a jacket or skirt, and work around it. Use texture to bring contrast to your look, and up the impact with layers or a high neckline. This trend also allows you to create the perfect canvas to show off your favorite accessories. Read on to find out how to nail color-block dressing with BOSS Womenswear.
Wearing the siren shade shows you mean business, and showcasing it from head to toe makes you look fearless. Use contrasting textures – cosy knits mixed with lustrous fabrics – and add a handbag in a tonal shade. Use pop-color shoes to set off the fiery style, and subtle accents like a metallic eyelet belt to accentuate your waist. Rich red flatters every skin tone, so wear it with pride for ultimate power-dressing.
Dare yourself to shine in sunny yellow, combining feminine pleats with a flat-knit sweater for textural contrast. Exuding positive vibes, this impactful color is easily accessorised with a distinctive scarf - a bold pattern with a flash of the core color will elongate your silhouette. When wearing yellow, try warmer, golden tones for one-color wonder during the day, or add a hint of neon for a night out.
If color-block dressing is out of your comfort zone, one of the more understated ways to master it is with tailoring. Opt for a charcoal suit and slip a tonal top underneath to make a simple statement, adding accessories like a metallic watch and black leather shoes to draw the eye to the buttons. Offering the original professional look, a charcoal-grey suit is the perfect choice when you mean business.
From forest to camouflage, khaki to mint, green is naturally stylish. A jewel-colored hue is easy to layer, while a bright shade will make you stand out from the crowd. Combine the two for a directional look, by pairing an emerald-colored trouser suit with a fresh green turtleneck to accentuate your height. Punctuate it with heeled boots in fresh white for a nod to the sports-luxe trend, and finish the look with a statement bag in a clashing tone.
