Happy Wednesday Friends!
We are talking about color blocking today. The trend has been around for sometime now and it does not seem to be going anywhere. I really have enjoyed seeing how the different designers are keeping the look fresh by coming up with new geometric prints and color combos.
There are many ways to incorporate color blocking into an outfit. I am drawn to the more subtle geometric patterns. I also prefer no more than three colors blocked at a time, with two of those being neutrals. If you want to attempt this on your own with more bright colors, then make sure you are familiar with the color wheel and what colors complement and contrast each other in a way that is pleasing to the eye. You can also just google "color blocking" to find a list of complimentary color combinations. Still intimidated? Try pairing shades of the same hue. For example navy, light blue, and cobalt are always easy on the eye. For color blocking newbies who want an instant tres chic look, I suggest buying a dress like the one above by Trouve or a top that comes already blocked to perfection. Accessorize the look with bold jewelry or mix another geometric print into the look with a fun clutch as I did above. When playing with prints always remember that scale is everything. Large prints compliment small prints. Most importantly have fun with it!
Thanks again for stopping by Of Beauty And Grace! Make it a wonderful day!
