Color Blocking

What is color blocking?

Well, it isn't for the faint of heart,
but it also isn't necessarily for the short of stature.

Color blocking takes bold opposites on the color wheel
and puts them together for the widest contrast possible.

The other extreme color block combination is black/white.

Let's go back to elementary school real quick.

So, do you remember what your primary colors are?

Red, Blue and Yellow.

What about secondary colors?

Purple, Green, and Orange.

The optimal color block scheme would be to take a red,
mix it with a green,
and add a third color.

For a petite person or one that is not necessarily slim,
color blocking can cut you horizontally,
making one look wider and larger than you'd probably like,
so be careful when picking out a color blocking outfit.

However, it can be done vertically,
which will give you a little more of a slimming look
(we would all love that).

Instead of putting all the colors into one article of clothing,
you can use accessories as the different color.

See you next time,


Happy Shopping!
