While walking the streets of NYC, almost every trend can be seen; from some of the most daring to the most predictable, it’s all there. This time around in NYC one of the most reoccurring trends that I noticed was color blocking. Whether it is a pair of bright green shorts worn with a subtle colored T-shirt or a stand out orange blouse, like this Fashionista, it can be seen in abundance. This Fashionista caught my eye in her brilliant, bold orange blouse as she walked down the street. The lightweight material combined with the loose fitting nature of the blouse makes it ideal for hot summer days in the city. Though this day wasn’t unbearably hot, on warmer days the blouse can easily be paired with a camel colored skirt. On the other hand, if you dare to go extra bold, this orange blouse would be a great complement to a pair of green shorts or pants. But for this day, the Fashionista chose her black jeggings. As for her shoes, the wooden heel adds to the summery feel of the outfit while still allowing the Fashionista to walk not only in style, but comfort as well. Wooden heels are a great choice for summer in the city for during either the day or night and are a perfect alternative to the widely worn wedge.
Hint: Zara has an extensive selection of bold and bright colored clothes.
