Color Blocking!

So I color blocked and I must admit I did it up.

I don’t mean to toot my own horn but ::beep beep::

Color blocking happens when you create an outfit by putting areas or blocks of solid color next to each other.  For this season a lot of people have put together bold, bright colors.  But color blocking IS NOT seasonal.  You can color block throughout the entire year.

Although there is a lot of freedom in color blocking we must be careful!  Don’t go crazy if you are just starting.  Take baby steps try, pairing a bold color with other basic/neutral colors such as black, neutral, white, brown and gray.  This way your look is more polished.  Start off by pairing a bold color with a neutral.

If you have a particular area on your body that you are not comfortable with you DO NOT want to wear a bright color on that area.  If you hate your arms don’t wear a lime green shirt.  You would want to wear a darker shade to make them appear slimmer.  If you want to accentuate your hour-glass shape wear a color block around your waist, this will highlight and draw attention to your shape.  Color Blocking can work for all of us!

Think about the color wheel and what colors compliment each other. Don’t wear more than three colors, ok I’ll be nice and say 4.  You can also just wear different hues of the same color.  Oh yeah, out of these 3 colors only 1 can be neon (i aint negotiating on that!!!).

But have fun with it, and hey if you think you doing it, nobody can’t tell you nothing  . . .

‘cept me and I will call you out on my blog!

Here are some hues that work well together:

1. Cobalt Blue, Yellow, Orange

2. Chocolate Brown, Pink, Peach

3. Purple, Bright Blue, Teal

4. Deep Blue, Bright Pink, White

5. Coral, Grey, Ivory
