Colour Blocked

Last season we saw a lot of color-blocking and I'm glad its here to stay this season also. Its a trend I love watching most, with so many options to explore. We see to many odd and new color coded outfits, which is the beauty of this trend. The working lady to the party animal, all have their own take on this trend. You can look sophisticated to casual to chic with this trend.  An interesting part of this trend is it slims you down if you wear it right. This could never be done before so easily! I'll be using this outfit for a contest on StylePile. You could see my entries here and here vote for me!

1. To begin with you could use one bright hue with a light hue.
2.Always keep a neutral or earthy color if the other two colors are bright.
3. You could mix in patterns if you like.
4. Neons can make the look bolder than the average.
5. With black being a covetable fashion item, busrts of colors with it can look crisp and trendy.
6. Always use darkers shades on the problem areas(dark bottom for the pear shaped, darker tops for apple shaped)
7. Color blocking with jewellery has become more and more of a fashion staple.
8. Pick a color blocked dress instead, if you can't figure out how and what!!
9. Do not mix more than 4 colors in one outfit. Can create a lot of confusion. I think three colors create the best color blocked look.
10. Experiment with combinations you would otherwise never dare to put together.
11. The daring ones can pick up one color in different tones, and wear them all together. Keep shoes neutral.

This post is special because I'm wearing my DIY collar here. With everyone making theses, I had to make one for myself.
