Color Blocking 101

Color-blocking has been used quite a lot lately on a great variety of collections, and although the white-on-white look is spring's favorite trend, the color block has maintained its popularity, and for many good reasons. 

Color blocking consists of wearing strategically-placed complimentary yet contrasting bold colors in a single outfit. However, and like any other trend, it has its rules that should be followed to really carry the look gracefully and fashionably.

First, know that not all colors fit well when matched. Think of color combinations that you find on opposite or adjacent sides on the color wheel. The most common combos are pink and red, orange and blue, pink and purple, and blue and red. Another point to take into consideration is making sure the colors are bright enough, since color-blocking with pastels isn't as eye-catching.
