If you’re anything like me, then you love to add color to your outfits. Color-blocking is quintessential summer, winter-bright, cheerful, and fun. And I must say, that’s what I love the most about color-blocking.
I’m sure when you hear the term color-blocking you think of something complex, but it doesn’t have to be! One of the easiest ways to demonstrate the color-block trend is to pair complementary colors together. You can try a purple with yellow, yellow plaid with red plaid, blue with orange, red and green, or pink with green. The possibilities are endless! And yes, you can even color-block your office work attire! You can without a doubt color-block pieces into corporate settings by simply styling darker clothes with black or white pieces.
Trust me, experimenting with color blocking gives you more outfit choices to choose from. If you’re an individual who lives in a “quintessential winter” climate you may be victim of the bully “seasonal depression”. No, really! Studies have shown that there is definitely a link between color and emotions. Colors can have a profound effect on us both psychology and physiologically. Creating striking, bold combinations will always leave everyone raving, yourself included. If I can color-block so can you!
