This season, everyone seems to be obsessed with color-blocking. While the majority of the brands’ picked accessories as the main category of color-blocking experiments, I figured that a midi skirt that focuses the graphic combination of cobalt blue, muted tangerine, and blush pink would be a more exciting combo for me. When I first saw this Peter Pilotto skirt, it literally screamed “color-blocking 101” at me. And I just couldn’t resist, because a girl loves a good asymmetric trim midi skirt.
I don’t know if you remember, but this skirt caused a major debate on Instagram as some people identified it as “pink and orange” while others said that it’s “salmon and khaki.” Honestly, I’m not the best with all the fancy shade names (probably, because I’m not a native English speaker), but if I have the option I would always pick something that sounds a bit more unique. Hey, I need to learn new words so I’m always up to the challenge of discussing the difference between crimson, ruby, and brick reds. Even if it means only memorizing the shade names of my favorite red lipsticks.
Talking about colors, this season I see a lot of primal colors around. From that fancy sounding scarlet red to cobalt blue and ultraviolet, this season the term “basic” is not a derogatory when it comes to color selection. The simpler the color, the better!
A few words about the other pieces that I used to create this look. The jacket is from Elie Tahari sale when I was in Florida, the turtleneck (aka the most luxurious and high-quality basic piece I own) is from Shopbop, the heels are SJP from a few seasons ago, and the bag is from Mugler event that I attended a few weeks ago. As you see, someone is going through just another “all black all the time” style period. But it’s actually not that obvious when combined with my statement skirt. Right?
