COLOR BLOCKING 101Wednesday, April 25, 2012
Hola chicas! I'm super excited to post for Shalanda while she gets some much needed R&R. I decided to provide a few tips and some basics on a trend which is here to stay ...COLOR BLOCKING. Pairing colors can be a bit tricky but there are numerous ways to create a fashionable look containing various colors ranging from bold and vibrant color pairings to neutral shades styled together.
Generally I recommend two bright colors and using neutral accessories like nude, metallic or animal prints.
You can also color block with neutrals as well for instance a white top and black bottom can be worn together with a colorful blazer and belt to create the color blocking effect.
•stick with two colors
•reference the color wheel and nature
•bright colors should be worn with neutral accessories - nudes, metallics, animal prints
•colors should be same tone - pastels, muted, brights
•neutrals can be color blocked - black, beige, whites
•keep it simple - buy pieces with color blocking incorporated
