Color Blocking In Fashion







When I was a teen I never knew what color blocking was in fashion. But I was good at it. For people who don't know like I did, Color blocking, is a way of wearing multiple solid colors in an outfit. Your outfit has to resolves around a palette of two or more colors, usually in bold and bright shades. Picking colors that contrast well is important. Brown, and black would make a good color combination. But white and black would. Prints and patterns are typically not used in colorblocking. Why because it takes away the "blocking method. Color blocking is so cool, more celebrities are rocking it especially in the spring and summer. But be careful before trying it. The last thing you want to do is look tacky and not trendy. Check out some cool examples I made.






I went to the Art Institute 3 yrs for advertising design. The first year all students had to take a color class. We would mix colors and we made a color wheel from scratch, and a greyscale. Colors were very important to understand as a designer,interior designer period. If you are a artsy person color blocking in fashion should be a piece of cake. Color blocking is taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations. If you don't know what a color wheel is, here's one to help you.
