Just for fun, try explaining the concept of ‘color blocking’ to a member of the opposite sex. The result is an expression of amusement, then confusion resulting in many comical questions. I tried to explain how color blocking is two or more usually contrasting colors coming together in one outfit. After which point all your outfits are color blocked. Yeah, they don’t get it!
Personally speaking, this is not a trend I’ve embraced dearly. I feel like in a top or dress it just cuts you in pieces. Even though I come in the ‘petite’ variety, I’ve seen taller people wear it and don’t feel like it does them justice either.
The way I would rock this trend is by wearing contrasting color tops with bottoms (for example, a forest green top with navy blue pants or an oxblood top with an orange skirt) to give the colors some breadth. Or, by way of accessories like a color blocked tote, bracelet or cap toe flats in contrasting colors.
Here are some of my favorite color blocked pieces:
