Color Blocking is making its way back to the forefront.....

What is color blocking?  Its combining one or more colors that compliments each other. You can do this to top, bottom, tunic, a dress and even a handbag or shoes. You are creating an ensemble by putting  blocks of solid colors next to each other. 

The only issue that i have with this trend is that its easy to go wrong with the colors! you have to have an eye for blocks that contrast with each other in a good way. But what i can say is that when its done right its and summer and fall fashion filled blocking look. 

One thing is if you know me i have been doing this for a very long time this tend is not new. Trend and cloths recycle themselves and we as consumers, tell the market what we want and drive for!

Via Indian Make up and Beauty here are some tips in order to successfully master color block trend.... 

  • Don’t be shy to experiment. Any color combination is fantastic if you can pull it off properly. Blue, green and orange sounds mad but will look oh-so-pretty.
  • Do not combine more than three to four colors. It’s not that it doesn’t look nice, but it looks very ‘ramp’ish. Moreover more colors will keep cutting your body shape here and there making it a not so beautiful sight.
  • Choose what you want to color block and keep the rest of your look simple. For example, if you opt for a colorblocked bag, go easy on the clothes and shoes. You don’t want to look like a Rubik cube, do you??
  • Never ever ever combine two color blocked items. This is the worst thing to do to this trend. No actually you can, its just that you will end up looking like the latest catalogue of Asian paints. :evilgrin
