Colorblocking At The Office

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Lately, I have been all about colorblocking. In my last style post, I shared with you my new favorite colorblocked skirt (seen HERE) and today I am sharing with you a classic colorblocking color scheme that I love. It’s no secret that I am all for bright colors. My favorite color scheme is orange and purple. I just think those two colors compliment each other so well. I remember a couple of years ago when Gucci went colorblock crazy with their fall collection and mixed orange with purple, and green. Just about every stylish celebrity was seen in those looks.¬†I had always loved that collection¬†and wanted to recreate something similar that would fit and flatter my shape.

I’ve been into pants a lot lately. Especially wide leg pants. While doing a little browsing at Talbots for some workwear pieces, I came across a pair of purple wide leg crepe trousers. When I saw them, I immediately thought of that Gucci collection back in 2012. All I needed was an orange top and some gold accessories. I continued browsing the Talbots site and spotted a sating blend blouse in orange. Jackpot! It was then that my recreation began.

The purple wide leg pants fit like a dream. The cut was perfect for my ample curves and the banded side zip waist made it look like I barely had a tummy. As a 5 foot 7 1/2 woman the length of the pants hit at the middle of my heels which is a good length for wide leg pants and it made my legs look longer and leaner.

The blouse is a pullover style which offered a relaxed yet polished fit. For a streamlined look, I tucked the shirt in. I loved the jewel tone autumn orange color in the top and I thought it went perfectly with the wide leg crepe pants.

I accessorized the look with a camel hair leopard clutch, a gold bracelet, and green jeweled tone chain link necklace.

    You can’t beat Talbots for classic professional clothes in a wide range of sizes. You look great (as usual ).

    I love Talbots. These pieces look gorgeous together! The orange is one of my favorite colors, especially for fall, and it looks amazing with the purple. I love how you have styled these. I am so self conscious of my tummy and do not wear things tucked in, but seeing how amazing you look I might just give it a try!
