Without a doubt, colour-blocking is a bold and fun way to dress! The secret is to make sure the focus remains on you and not solely the style technique.
You may recall the height of Color-blocking trends popularity first in the 1960’s and later in the 1980’s. This past season designers revisited color-blocking techniques and ended up creating some exciting modern styles. The public and press fell head over heels with the look, so designers continued the trend throughout their winter collections. There are three techniques to styling a colour-blocked outfit – select one:
1. Monochromatic = one color throughout entire outfit in different hues.
2. Separates = mix garments of contrasting (2-4) colors.
3. Stand-Alone = one color-blocked garment or accessory where the designer has already done all the work for you.
