We really love the color blocking trend this season. Color blocking is old school fashion brought back in style by designers like Donna Karen & Celebs such as Rihanna.
This hot trend will definitely need to be a part of your fashion style for the 2011 summer season. Clothes, shoes, purses and accessories can all make up your different blocks of color in your wardrobe.
What you’re attempting to do is combine different colors that complement each other. CAUTION: With your choice of ANY color to put together, things of course can go horribly wrong. Keep it sexy and simple like our fav Leona Lewis.
Do your pop color (pink, yellow, orange, blue) & pair it with a solid black, white, or gray piece of clothing.Don’t combine more than 4 colors together, unless you are an expert on the color wheel. Use the color wheel below to help you match your contrasting colors.
Don’t overdo it. Everything that you wear in your outfit doesn’t have to have a color block. If you have on a brightly colored skirt, stay with a solid shirt as Jennifer Lopez has done below.
BONUS: COLOR BLOCK YOUR NAILS TOO! The two main things you need to make your 2011 color block trend a success, is courage to mix conventional colors and your own individual style.
