Tip du Jour: Color Blocking

Color blocking has been one of the top trends to wear for nearly a year, but I often see people incorrectly color blocking, here are a few tips on how to rock this trend.

Tip Number One: Similar Shades

Wear similar colors in varying shades if you're afraid of going all out with color blocking. Pair multiple shades of colors in the same color family or shade, pink, purple, whatever you like! Pair the outfit with at least one neutral piece such as a bag or shoe so it's not completely overwhelming.

Tip Number Two: Pre- Color Blocked Items

Go with pre-color blocked items for an easy look without having to put much effort into your look besides accessories. Dresses will typically be the easiest pre- color blocked items to find, but skirts and tops are also available in a variety of color combinations.

Tip Number Three: Work the Color Wheel

We all learned the color wheel in elementary school art class to create the perfect painting with complementary shades right? Well, in a nutshell you were learning to color block at a young age. Pair combinations such as blue and orange, yellow and violet, or red and green for a bold yet seamless look.
