Color Block It

Vintage Coat / Design History Turtleneck (similar) / Zara Trousers / Supergas / Beret

My color palette tends to sku towards neutrals and black, but there's something about when fashion week rolls around that pushes me to color outside the lines (pun intended). Here I decided to play on colorblocking with a French tomboy charm.

Recognize the coat? It's from my very first post on A Vintage Vice and one of my favorite pieces from my grandmother's closet circa 1950. The oversized and structural quality allows me to play with proportions. This vibrant and cropped green sweater, tapered black trouser, and platform white sneaks complete the look and achieve the contrast of proportions and colors with a dash of tomboy.
