Color blocking doesn’t have to be different colors all on one garment. Try pairing two solid separates for a fun yet sleek look. This blazer and shorts combo from Cinq à Sept is a perfect spring brunch outfit. This NYC brand takes inspiration from the hours of 5 to 7 pm, when the sun is setting and the stress of work is over. Dress up the look with some strappy square-toed heels or down with a white tee and your favorite white sneakers.
