color blocked main Acne Studios Ahluwalia Studio By Walid
LN-CC

A trend that hit its peak with sportswear of the ’90s, on the list of retro wardrobe essentials, color-blocking is up there with bucket hats right now. Alongside pastels and lower-key palates, everyone from Nike and PUMA to fashion labels such as Stüssy and Acne Studios are dabbling in this bold, bright aesthetic.

A drastic way to include some more eye-popping hues to the duller coloring of winter wardrobes, bright pops of every shade on the color wheel can now be found on apparel, sneakers, and accessories. The trend is perfect for anyone who loves to dabble in ’90s-inspired fits, often applied to retro athletic sweaters, knee-length shorts, and nostalgic sneaker silhouettes.

Now, if you’re ready to add a pop of color (better yet, colors) to your fall/winter looks, here we’re bringing you all our favorite pieces to get in on the trend this season.

Particular highlights include an upcycled knit sweater from Ahluwalia Studio in blue, green, red, and yellow, a color-blocked utility vest by Stone Island, plus Nike‘s colorful Air Force 1 ’07 PRM and an insane bandana-printed bucket hat from Children of the Discordance.
