Neutral color block sweater outfit styled with Liverpool distressed skinny jeans and a Chloe Hudson dupe bag by affordable fashion blogger Stephanie Ziajka on Diary of a Debutante

As much as I love bright bold colors in the summer, I tend to lean towards neutral tones in the colder months. I’ve been noticing more and more that neutral doesn’t have to mean boring, though. Designers and brands are pushing neutral color blocking this season, and I’m all about it. I took one look at this pale pink color block sweater and immediately fell in love. It’s under $20, and while I admit that it’s not the warmest sweater, but I adore it nonetheless– so much so that I ordered this gray tassel crossbody bag to match. Head to the bottom of this post for full color block sweater outfit details!

Neutral Color Block Sweater Outfit

Y’all may have noticed that I’ve gone on a serious designer look-alike kick over the years. This Tom Clovers Saddle Crossbody, which happens to look very similar to the Chloe Hudson Shoulder Bag, is one of my oldest treasures. Honestly, I’ve never been in a position to buy designer shoes or handbags (got too many bills to pay!). So, if you’re in a similar situation, check out this roundup of my favorite designer-inspired fashion accessories on Amazon. You’ll be in heaven! I’ve also rounded up the best Chanel look-alike bags and best Chloe look-alike bags, too.

I would also like to say that while I typically never spend more than $50 on a pair of shoes, M. Gemi Italian heels are 100% worth their (very) high price tag. These pumps are called The Cammeo, and they’re just shy of $300. They’re also legitimately the comfiest heels I’ve ever owned. Something about them makes my manly flat feet look pretty dang feminine, too, which is no easy feat. Pun intended. Anyway, M. Gemi’s The Cammeo pumps in black patent leather will be my next purchase. Let’s be honest, though– a sale wouldn’t hurt.
