There’s just something about spring that brings out all of the peacocks of fashion. So one trend that we saw on the runways was color, color and more color! Even more trendy was putting all of those colors together in one outfit in large bold swatches, aka color blocking.
So how do you pull of color blocking? There’s really no figure flattery rules, just pick three or four of your favorite colors (preferably complimentary colors such as blue and orange so that they really pop) and pile them on!
But here’s a few guide-lines to get you started:
Stick with solids, as patterns+crazy colors = crazy lady. If you have a loud personality go for it, but if you’re new to wearing lots of color stick with solid colors.
Buy clothing that is already color blocked such as the dress above. Put it on and voila! Easiest color blocking ever.
Still color shy? Try adding one or two black or white pieces to ground your look, as seen on the far right. That way it isn’t a full body look, but you still have the color blocking effect.
