I have really been loving Lady Gaga’s style of late. She has started to opt for pieces that are actually wearable, though they are still eye-catching and far from run of the mill.
She was seen out and about in London in a kelly green and hot pink dress from British designer Roksanda Ilincic’s Spring 2012 collection. She paired it with a sky-high fascinator from Philip Treacy. This might be more “belle of the ball” than just a normal everyday look, but what else would you expect from Lady Gaga? I love that she is choosing bright colors as Fall and Winter can sometimes be so dull.
Take a cue from Gaga and try these fun colorblock pieces that will help you to end 2011 in style:
Chunky knits are essential for Fall. Try Alexander Wang’s Marled Colorblock Cardigan ($545) to pair with leggings and over the knee boots. An ode to Piet Mondrian, Kate Spade’s Regalia Harlow Bag ($425) blends art and fashion perfectly. Every woman with curves should have an arsenal of pencil skirts in her wardrobe. BCBGMAXAZRIA’s Scarlett Body Con Colorblock Skirt ($148) is a fun way to add some color to your party ensembles.
Candy anyone? B Brian Atwood’s Suede Colorblock Pumps ($350) are definitely delectable. Dark purple and teal is a wonderful way to colorblock for both in the office and out on the town. Try Moyna’s Beaded Colorblock Clutch ($112) and combine the two in a statement-making way.
