Fashionistas, how do you do?
The fashion industry created a term for a look that has been around for years!. That phrase? Color Blocking. What this means is wearing two solid colors (or three), similar or blatantly opposite from each other on the color wheel (your preference) in one look. It is best to tie them together with a neutral item to complete the look. The big idea is that the bold colors compliment one another by making a statement that says I am fierce enough to do this. Pics are all over the Internet of celebs with blue tops and yellow bottoms or red hats and orange dresses and whatever other combination you can imagine. The retailers are selling dresses with several combos and are using a belt to “block” the contrast (I saw this look on a mannequin at Express). I like the look personally. It’s a refreshing trend for spring. The ever so popular colored pant is a popular way to start sporting this look if you dare. When I see these pants I am reminded of my childhood when I wore purple pants and pink stirrups (and even with the LA Gear Light-ups). I loved wearing color as a child, sometimes in our adult life we play it so safe, rocking blacks, browns and greys all the time. Next time you’re shopping think twice about buying another black top. I guess as an adult that sort of innocence of wearing yellow and green isn’t so appealing but it can be done in a mature way. Keep your eyes open for very sleek, sophisticated styles and most importantly remember it must be worn with total confidence and purpose. I wouldn’t wear soemthing if I had to keep staring in the mirror asking myself, “Does this look right?”. You want to turn heads, not stomachs. With that being said, proceed with caution. Happy Shopping!
