Block Party!

23 Apr

Colorblocking is such a fun way to make a statement. It seems tricky at first but it can be done with ease. Lets start with the obvious, the absolute foolproof way to rock the block is by wearing a color block dress or a color blocked top and neutral bottoms. *Remember neutrals include black,white, grey and nude. As you get more comfortable with it you can start pairing up separates. If you want to start simple  you can pair a bright hue with a nude hue and if your feeling frisky you can pair two or more bold colors. I really love the look of a bright hues paired with a pastel hues also, very pretty. Adding a color blocked shoe to an otherwise simple outfit is also an easy way to add some oomph to your look.  Just try different combinations on and see what works for you. .

Here are some of my favorite color combos to block

  • Brown-peach-pink
  • Blue-yellow-orange
  • Orange-ivory-blue
  • Purple-blue-teal
  • Deep blue-bright pink-teal
  • Coral-grey-Ivory
  • Orange-ivory-fuschia
  • Royal blue-mint
  • Peach-mint
