Color blocking is the big “trend” lately and apparently this sweater falls under that category. Here are two definitions I found when I Googled color blocking, if you wanted to know the real meaning of this new fashion:
~Color blocking is a technique where blocks of various fabrics are sewn together to create clothing with a few different solid colors.
~A technique used to add dimension using 2 or more colors in a more contrasting pattern.
Without this terminology, I would have easily mistaken this sweater for really large stripes! Good thing I cleared this up for all of us, right? Now we can all sleep easy knowing there is a difference between stripes, large stripes and color blocks. In any case, if you have a similar sweater, they are great with plaids, especially now that the air has the crisp feeling of fall! Are you a fan of color blocking?
P.S. Forgive me for my hair today. I know it’s a bit reminiscent of the ladies from a polygamist sect in Colorado or something. At the time it seemed like a good, easy thing to do. My bun, not polygamy…
