Not sure how to hop on the color blocking trend? Add a major pop of color to any outfit with a bright blazer! Najela of Copenhagen has got the right idea throwing on this oversized vintage electric green blazer over a simple black tank top tucked into a pair of black high waisted Won Hundred denim shorts. Simplicity is always key when color blocking—there’s no need to overdue it with a slew of color. Try sticking to one focal bright garment, it can be just as effective especially for the fall season.

At a recent trade show in New York, I stumbled upon denim brand Won Hundred. Hailing from Denmark, this brand combines all the elements of effortless style. Their fall collection features a dark palette and classic silhouettes that make me want to curl up with a cup of coffee. Their denim is heavenly — I couldn’t stop touching the fabric at the trade show.
The brand already has a devoted following in Europe and has recently come to the US. It is sold in a few boutiques in New York and is available online. It is sold at Urban Outfitters in Europe so maybe it will be in their US stores by the time the beautiful Spring Collection comes out. With prices ranging from $145-$225 for jeans, Won Hundred will soon find a place in your heart, and your closet.
WHERE TO BUY:
28 Bond St (between Lafayette and Bowery)
198 Smith St (between Baltic and Warren)
