Are people still colour-blocking in 2018? The answer is, Yes! This 2007 trend is back, and in today’s post, I’m sharing tips on how to colour-block with finesse.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I LOVE colour. There’s just something about the colour purple, orange, green, yellow or any other bright colour that grabs my attention.
Colour-blocking is just another one of my favourite trends. I always say I’m not into trends but every once in a while, there is that one trend that I’m keen on.
Colour-blocking is the ability to wear different contrasting, bright colours and still have them complement one another- not always an easy thing to pull off but then again, nothing fashionable is.
There are rules when it comes to colour-blocking. Sure, anyone can pull out a lime green top and orange shorts and think they’re colour-blocking. But there’s a thin line between looking fashionable and looking like a clown.
Here are my 4 tips on colour-blocking with finesse
Don’t be OTT
Stick to two colour palettes. Any more than that and you’ll look like Bozo the Clown.
Don’t colour-block with patterns
Colour-blocking in itself draws attention. Combining different colours with patterns is not advisable. You want to wear the outfit and not the other way round.
Colour-block with your favourite colour
You have to be gutsy and not mind being the centre of attention when you colour-block so better start with a colour you love. If you like pink then maybe go with pink and maroon or pink and purple.
If you’re shy and like to be a wallflower then this trend is not for you. You have to be brave and bold and hold your head high when the compliments pour in as I’m sure they will. 😉
