Glamour listed the runway's color-blocking fashion as one of Spring 2012's most wearable looks. Color-blocking seems pretty simple, right? Well, not always. Color-blocking has to be done carefully. You can't just throw all of your favorite colors together in one outfit, and call it gorgeous. But it's also not a way difficult look to achieve. Take a peek at the example I created below.
1. I'd suggest picking two colors, and using variants of it throughout the outfit. In my example, I chose a bold coral and green/turquoise as my two statement pieces. Then I chose pink and orange for the belt and ring, and a soft blue for the shoes and bag.
2. Don't add too many accessories. With color-blocking, the colors themselves are the main focal.
3. Don't mix too many patterns - solids are best. One striped shirt or a lightly textured pant are okay; but save your florals, polka dots, and checked fabrics for another day.
Next time you are in a fashion crisis, try digging in your closet and finding the bold colors in your wardrobe that you can put together for a fresh, new outfit. Easy.
