Color Blocking is still 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:
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.
2. Choose Colors That Blend with Your Skin, Hair, and Eyes
You will look stunning when you choose shades that naturally blend with your skin tone, hair, and eyes. Choose colors opposite to your natural coloring; everyone will see the colors walking in the door and never even notice you.
3. Wear Color Strategically
4. Black and White Never Fails
If you like the idea of color blocking, but it is the color that scares you, you can never go wrong in good old black and white. It’s classic and always extremely elegant.
5. Vertical Color Blocking is Slimming
6. Have Confidence
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.
