Question: Is the color block fashion trend back?
Answer: Yes, absolutely yes! The trend that was all over the catwalks a few years ago is back thanks to designer Fausto Puglisi who recently created breathtaking gowns with exciting geometric shapes and bright prints. Also, Cédric Charlier proved that primary colors can work surprisingly well together. And while Roland Mouret presented candy colored coats and dresses for his Resort 2015 collection, Christian Siriano played with highlighter tones. Want to try the trend? Here’s the one rule to follow: forget about classic color combinations! The color blocking trend is a fun way to experiment with your clothes and create unexpected looks that can elevate your style status to street style star.
Mix primary colors
Wear red, green, and blue for a bold look. Or, choose only two of those colors and create an outfit that pairs a bright sweater and a skirt together. Midi and flowy skirts are the new must-haves.
Try a pastel combo
Don’t be afraid to wear multiple pastels colors at once. Choose structured pieces like a playsuit and layer it under a blazer to keep your look modern, not cheesy.
Go for clashing colors
Mixing contrasting hues can be daunting. However, a unique pairing that’s styled correctly can look really stylish. Don’t be shy! Look for a sleek, bright pair of pants and a fun boxy sweater for a chic, notice-me ensemble.
Neutrals never fail. For an outfit with an unexpected coolness factor, try a white shoe instead of a black or nude pair. Make your look shine with metallic heels, or take your color blocking game one step further with another contrasting color. Just make sure the rest of your accessories are minimal and neutral to avoid looking clownish.
