Having fun with colors is probably the most fun you can have with your wardrobe, and beyond that. So let’s have a color party! Let’s put together colors that “do not match” and watch what happens as we walk through campus. Let’s watch as heads turn and cameras start flashing because a color party, like this Fashionisto’s shirt, is a noteworthy sight.
Playing paparazzi, I spotted this Fashionisto as he walked through Central’s Botanical Garden and immediately affixed my eyes on his button-down shirt. Just look at it. Where does one find such a shirt, and how lucky am I to have witnessed this caliber of color-blocking? Wearing a single color-blocked article of clothing can be difficult, starting with finding the piece and then pairing it with other pieces to create a cohesive look. It is a good thing we can take a couple pointers from our friend here.
When incorporating a single color-blocked shirt into your ensemble, you will need to find a shirt that is right for you. Some shirts have more of an element of contrast than others, so before you can host a color party you will have to decide what you like. Although this Fashionisto’s shirt is composed of more colors than this monochromatic shirt, you could still be a color-blocking partygoer while wearing it because of its geometric separation of the shades and tones of blue.
Given that there are so many styles of color-blocked shirts, trying them on and finding what you like is practically a pre-party. You can choose a monochromatic shirt, a simple color-blocked shirt or a bold color-blocked shirt that is the life of the color wheel party. The only way to make the pre-party more fun is to invite all your friends to come with you as you strive to achieve this Fashionisto’s caliber of color-blocking. Once you make this look your own and head to your classes, you are sure to make multiple impressive and memorable entrances.
Hint: Pairing your color-blocked shirt with a pair of interesting pants would make your color party that much more impressive. Try these corduroy pants out for size—they will help you create an interesting look and get you ready for fall.
