Color blocking, is a method of wearing multiple solid colors in an outfit. It is sometimes written as color blocking, with two separate words. The outfit revolves around a palette of two or more colors, usually in bold and bright shades. The result is a simple yet very chic look. Prints and patterns are typically not used in color blocking, as such designs would take away from the “blocked” visual.
The color-blocking technique is making a true style statement, so it is imperative to select pieces that are flattering to you.
Color-blocked stripes and other architectural color-blocked patterns are very popular. The key is to pay attention to each stripes/shapes placement on your body, as aptly displayed in the left image.
If you are unable to find an attractive color-blocked pattern, don’t give up! Instead choose the easier method and select Option B by mixing multicolored separates, as demonstrated in the image on the right.
