Who Created Color-Blocking?

If it wasn't for these two men, color blocking in fashion would not exist!

Yves was inspired by Piet's abstract paintings to create color-blocking in fashion.

And below you will see how I was inspired to wear a color blocked skirt. This is typically something I have not been known to wear. But since my sophistication has grown, I feel great wearing color blocked styles. They have a modern/edgy look that makes me feel more grown up.

What I wore:

~ black turtleneck, bracelet and tights from Talbots

~ color blocked skirt by Spanner (purchase at Best Bib & Tucker in Downtown Bangor, Maine)

~ shoes by Gianni Bini
