Color-Blocking

Thursday, June 23, 2011

The rage this season is bold bright color-blocking clothes.  What is color-blocking you ask?  Color-blocking is the combination or solid high-beam hues that are separated. Think a fuchsia top and orange shorts, or a purple dress and green belt!  Add a pop of color to your style and give this look a try.  Do you think you will rock this trend?

I love this trend...on other women. I really doubt I could pull of this trend. You really have to have a good grasp of the complimentary colors on the color wheel in order to pull this off. But I'll give it a try soon, I hope.

I don't like how the models wear it, but I do like how it generally translates to everyday wear. Super cute! <3

What's next? The return of teased hair and crispy bangs? Ugh. No thank you.

I love color-blocking clothes! But since it's such a strong statement, I personally wouldn't wear a bright coat with bright pants. It's hard to pull off runway clothes in everyday life. But these are still gorgeous.

Alot of color poping ideas are relly cute but sometimes way to much I like it when it's not like crazy! Like the outfits in this picture are just so much thr one that I thought was cutest though was the blue top yellow bottom.

Maybe one bright piece out of an entire black attire would work for me. I'm not bold enough to be this bright.

I love color blocking. I think that it is such a fashion forward trend. I love how many designers have done it on the runways, hopefully this trend is here to stay.

This trend is both ingenious and inspiring! I LOVE IT, LOVE IT LOVE IT!! Playing with color is something that many of us tend to shy away from. But, when it is worn in such an eye catching way like this, you can never go wrong! When it comes to color and fashion, I say "DON"T ERASE, SIMPLY EMBRACE".

I love this trend! I think the most important thing is too not "over" color block. For example if your waist is not your best asset, you should not wear something that has three different color blocked sections with the lightest block of color wrapping around your waist.

Yeah...not a fan. It looks way to busy and is definitely the no-no of "clothing that wears you". The first thing I would like to notice on a person is their face...not their loud clothing. Its obnoxious and all the examples above are unflattering to say the least.

I love color-blocking! Whether it be with clothing or even make-up! I tried it with a bright matte purple eyeshadow, matte hot pink blush and orange matte lips, and it looked better than I imagine! I think the trick was using matte cosmetics versus the simmer because it helped it keep the look modern and not too loud. My favorite article to do color blocking with is a hot pink blazer!!

I don't really think I could pull off wearing color block in two bright colors, but if it's with blck then yes. I have a black and red color block dress tank dress that I like.

I LOOOOVE this trend. It makes my crazy eye looks not look so crazy anymore. It seems like what I've been doing for so long is finally a trend and I don't have to explain myself everytime I wear it.

I've totally been wanting to try this out but I'm a bit timid about trying on totally different colors that dont really go well together. Hopefully I'll try it out soon :D

Personally, I tried some looks out earlier this spring and I must say it didn't look that good on me. But then again I've seen other girls try this trend out and it looks really good on them. Really wish it looked good on me too :(

I LOVE THIS IDEA... I THINK IT WORKS GREAT FOR SUMMER DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE. I LIVE IN MIAMI SO I THINK I WOULD FIT RIGHT IN. HOWEVER, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT ITEMS TO MIX AND MATCH TO AVOID LOOKING TACKY?

I don't think I am brave enough to do the bright colors all around. Maybe a Dress, or a cool bright shirt, with jeans.

I love colors, so I've always been sporting this trend. Definitely not for those that don't trust their color sense. Color blocking and bright colors can be very artsy looking, perfect for warm weather!

I love color blocking! It is not for the faint of heart. Seems people either really love it or hate it. The Limited is now doing a line of color blocking that is really pretty. I have a color block dress from spiegal that is red on top and fuschia on the bottom with a black bow in the midle. I love it but once again some people just don't get the whole color blocking. I love the boldness of it and not feeling like a copy of everyone else.
