Color Blocking is still going strong but many of you are shying away from it for fear you will do it wrong and look foolish. So here’s a simple way to get in on the color blocking trend in a classy and elegant way:
Color Block Tip # 1 – Stick to Two Colors
Too many colors and it’s true, you can look like you like a mixed up mess. To keep things current but chic stick to 2-3 bright hues and keep everything else such as your shoes, jewelry and bag neutral.
Color Block Tip # 2 – Choose Colors that blend with Your Skin, Hair and Eyes
When you choose shades that naturally blend with your skin tone, hair and eyes you will look stunning. Choose colors that are opposite to your natural coloring and everyone will see the colors walking in the door and never even notice you.

Don’t feel you must color block your wardrobe to be in style. This look takes confidence. So if it doesn’t feel right for you, pass graciously. It may not be a match for your STYLE personality.
