Spring Shopping: Affordable Color Blocking Basics

color blocking

The key to any color blocking wardrobe is an arsenal of basics. Solid colored tank tops, t-shirts, and hosiery are basic layering pieces that can lift a look from simple to sensational. Most runway trends when adapted to fast fashion can look cheap, but this season's rampant color blocking trend isn't one of them. As much as we would all love a wardrobe filled with Gucci and Prada spring wares, sometimes we settle for garments within our price range. Lucky for us, color blocking is a trend just as easily achieved with J. Crew as it is Jil Sander. Here are some color blocking staples for prices that won't break the bank:
