The Color Block Dress You Need This Spring | Befitting Picks


I love color blocking throughout the year as I don’t feel the need to wait till spring to pair vivid colors together. I’ve had a natural instinct for color blocking since I was a kid (blame my Nigerian culture). To color block simply means to pair solid colors together that contrast one another. When I saw this long sleeve Estaban Cortazar dress that did just that, I knew it’s a perfect match for me and as most people tend to leave their color blocking to spring and summer, it’s a perfect match for spring!

The Color Block Dress You Need This Spring - Befitting Style

These sleeves are perfect for the chilly days that we may encounter as we are walking out of winter. The jewel toned flared hem flatters the body by being tight in all the right places, while loosening up when approaching the hem.

This dress is a pricey one so I was sure to include other color block dresses that are more affordable below.


What do you think of the dress?
