OOTD: The Color Blocked Sweater

J Crew Factory Color Blocked Sweater You know…  I am completely surprised that color blocking is still going strong.  Not surprised in a bad way…I love color blocking…  but we all know that fashion can be quite fickle at times.  This trend seems to be an exception though.  And I mean in a big way…  it just doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon and in fact, has been getting reinvented each season!  So at what point is it no longer a trend?  Hmmm….

J Crew Factory Color Blocked Sweater I’ll let you ponder that for a moment.  In the meantime, a color blocked sweater, blouse or top is an easy way to work this trend into your wardrobe.  In particular right now as color blocked looks are no longer focusing only on the body of a piece…  many looks now are blocking the cuffs, the collars and even the sleeves!

J Crew Factory Color Blocked Sweater I chose this sweater in fact because it was blocked on the back panel and the cuffs.  Add in the fabulous oxblood color and elbow patches…. and it was pretty much a done deal!
