The Art of Color Blocking in the Fall
The hottest trend of the summer is color blocking! It’s so hot that it’s appearing in all the fall fashion outfits. This look is far from new, but it’s back with a huge bang and you can’t ignore it.
Color blocking is a chic way to add a splash of color to any outfit. It’s all about statement pieces, such as a fur jacket, vest, shawl, poncho etc. There are tons of ways to make this trend work for you so, let’s check out the best ways to color block your fall fashion looks.
1. Start with two colors, usually a neutral and a bright. Neutral shades include black, gray, white and taupe. These shades work best with vibrant colors like neon pink, green, yellow, fuchsia, cobalt blue, orange or purple.
2. Kick it up a notch with three or four colors: one bright, one bold, and one neutral. This look can be accomplished by selecting a shade that is a different hue of whatever your non-neutral color is. Be a risk taker and experiment.
3. Accessories are a necessity. While you are sporting fur and outstanding colors you do not want to take away from the original outfit. Then figure out what accessories work best is by simply picking one colored item. With the right jewelry, shoes, belt or clutch you can bring an entire look together.
4. Stay away from prints. Color blocking is exactly what it sounds like, blocks of color. Prints take away from this fashion trend. Clothing, accessories and shoes should be solid colors in order to fully achieve the look you’re going for.
Color blocking has no limitations! Be a fashion icon – fierce, daring, and bold!
