Neutral color block
Color block is a big trend that can be seen everywhere now. Usually you see color block done with bright bold colors which are more popular. However, on a recent night out of town while I was in Miami, I decided to go the neutral route. I didn’t have to put layers on top of layers to do my color block, instead I opted for a vintage Guess by Marciano dress from my closet that does the work and threw on some nude Loubie shoes to finalize the look.
Simple rule to keep in mind when color blocking:
Keep it simple—Choose what you want to color block and keep the rest of your look simple!
Three is your lucky number—it’s best to keep it to 2 or 3 colors.
It’s ok to get loud with it—meaning if you wear bright colors, you can still look fabulous!
It’s also ok to wear a color that doesn’t necessarily go together but yet still look amazing. However, if this wouldn’t work for you, then go for colors that are complementary (i.e. the dress I’m wearing).
Also depending on your body type, keep those in mind in order to look fabulous in a color blocked outfit :
Pear shape body—darker colors on the bottom
Apple Shape—Avoid horizontal blocks of color around the stomach area but highlight legs with color block (use bright colored tights).
Hourglass shape—color block around waist (draws attention to your womanly figure).
Experiment & have fun with it but don’t get carried away J
