Colorblock Queen!

Colorblock Queen!


Nautical-striped dresses have been on trend for several spring/summer seasons, but stripes occasionally get a bad rap- especially those of the horizontal variety! Colorblock dresses can lend a similar look in a much more intentionally flattering way…that is, if you choose your blocks right! Here I’m wearing an Ann Taylor colorblock sheath dress that is a perfect fit for my body type, petite/curvy. You really can accentuate and take attention away from your best and worst areas with colorblocking, a concept that is much harder to accomplish with stripes. {Below} I have also pictured many other dress styles from Nordstrom that are perfect for other body types. Enjoy, and have fun finding YOUR perfect colorblock dress!

Tall & thin: Horizontal blocks break up height; draws attention to curves
