Every time Jill Jurgensen and I get together in Manhattan, trouble follows. Jill is an accomplished interior designer and photographer. She’s been a keen observer of fashion ever since she dressed her first Barbie.  Here’s what’s on Jill’s radar this month:

“Color blocking isn’t exactly new; we’ve seen this trend cycle through fashion before. But this spring, it’s brighter, bolder, and NEON, and it’s popping up everywhere including accessories, jewelry, handbags, shoes, and even nail polish.

Color blocking has been featured by such diverse design labels as Victoria Beckham, Proenza Schouler, Peter Som, Ruffian, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, and Max Azria.

Wearing bright colors can be an uplighting experience even for us otherwise neutral-bias New Yorkers. Just make sure colors are figure flattering and properly placed.”
