I’m a big fan of color which is why I love the color block trend. Not only does it look fresh, and modern, but the way the colors are arranged can help sculpt your body and give you a fabulous shape.
See how the white part of my dress highlights my face and carves out a nice bustline for me?
This orange dress from Pink Tartan is another favorite color blocked dress of mine. The long white line down the front of the dress draws your eye from top to bottom, making me look taller and slimmer. The white panels at my waist give me an exaggerated hourglass shape. The white band at the bottom draws attention to my legs.
Sometimes color blocking is more about transmitting a mood. This colorful jacket is classically constructed, but the wide multi-colored stripes signal fun.
If you like the idea of color blocking, but can’t see yourself in an entire color blocked outfit, then the easy way to get the look is via color blocked accessories. For example, you could wear a solid blue dress and color block your accessories in solid black.
Or you could buy a color blocked purse, sweater, shoes or any other accessories to go with one of your outfits. All you need is a nod to the trend if you want to get a color blocked look.
