Fashion trends are forever changing and evolving, but the strongest ones are those that are inspired by the coolest street styles - colour blocking is one of them. Since summer is about bright and vibrant colours, lets learn the art of colour blocking and make the streets your ramp.
Colour blocking is pairing two or more contradictory colours together. Celebrities like Rihanna, Mahira khan, Mawra Hocane and Meghan Trainor are known for popularizing the colour blocking trend. But how can you get the colour blocking trend right every time?
FOCUS ON THE SILHOUETTE:
Since there is no rule of choosing colours for colour blocking, silhouettes must be the point of focus. Choose fool proof cuts and silhouettes that flatter your body type. This way you’ll be only experimenting with colours and not silhouettes at the same time. Pair the sleek Natasha Kamal Ithaca Georgette Chiffon Tunic with straight HSY Pink & Black Embellished Silk Trouser to colour block like a pro.
TONE IT DOWN WITH PASTELS:
Even though colour blocking with bright colours is always fun, but you can’t really wear screaming colours, everywhere right? For offices and more sober gathering opt for pastels. Combining two contradictory pastel hues makes a stylish yet elegant outfit. We would recommend pairing Sania Maskatiya Pastel Pink Indian Net Embroidered Cape with Shamaeel’s Soft Blue Raw Silk Pants to look effortlessly chic.
The type of accessories you choose can make or break the look of your outfit. Colour blocking your accessories is also very important. Either match your accessory with the brightest colour in your outfit or go choose a completely different colour than your outfit. Rema Luxe Red Brass Metal Sparks Hoops Ear Studs, Gold Brass Metal Theatrical Stud Ear Stud and Amishi Stunning Sterling Silver Drop Earrings are some good solid colour options.
