Winter Style: Colour Blocking with Et La Mer

by Dianne Sheehan, Owner/Manager

Colour blocking is a fashion trend that’s finding its way from the catwalks to the streets. Whether you prefer a colour-coded fashion statement or the mixing and matching of different colours, this is a trend you can apply to your winter wardrobe now.

We visited Et la mer this month to explore colour blocking in this season’s hottest colours: khaki, rust and brown. Colour blocking is a great palette cleanser – no prints, means no fuss – and we have the collections to enhance your winter wardrobe.

Colour block: khaki

With style: Hispanitas Almanzora army

You certainly won’t be limited for clothing choice this season, as khaki features heavily across all main fashion labels. We opted for a feminine look for these heavy combat-style lace up boots with a soft linen skirt. Add some woollen tights, and you’ll be set for the colder months.

If you prefer to mix and match colours, khaki and forest greens work well with soft pinks. Try a lighter pink tone with the dark greens. 

Colour block: rust

With style: Fly London Zelk wine

This next outfit is a great example of how much colour variance is available to you when colour coding. The red-brown tones blend perfectly from dark to light.

Colour block: brown

With style: Wonders D-9305 tan

Tan is always a popular ‘neutral’ colour for winter boots, so your options are endless this (and every) season. We chose the Wonders long boot with a textured leather finish for an on-trend look. Long skirts work well with long boots, particularly for extra warmth on those cooler days, and this outfit delivers colour blocks that enhance the texture and colour tones of the boots.
