ALL IN THE DETAILS: Color Blocking

Want to try a fashion trend that can easily give your outfit a quick and easy “wow” factor? Try color blocking. It’s a trend that has made its debut on the runways of Altuzarra in the form of a sweater, Dior in the form of a pump and cuff, Phillip Lim in the form of a skirt and Prada in the form of a sandal. By showing these color-blocking looks on the runway in so many variations, one can see that they can get as creative with color-blocking as their heart desires, as nothing is too avant-garde for fashion. After all, fashion is all about allowing one to create their own masterpiece through their unique looking glass of beauty.

This Fashionista, whom I spotted on the streets of San Francisco, worked this trend with her shoes. The color-blocking heels were a captivating fashion statement fit for a true Fashionista. The Fashionista nailed color blocking for a casual night out on the town by pairing the black and white heels with lightly distressed dark wash jeans, an effortlessly knotted gray tank top to accentuate her frame and a simple complementary tote. Moreover, her white manicure pops against her black bag for an extra color-blocking detail. Although this Fashionista could have worn earrings and a necklace, the extra accessories aren’t as crucial with bold color-blocking taking the stage. Now, it’s time for you to start making a statement by color-blocking! You’ll be amazed by the amount of combinations you can come up with when you look through your wardrobe with this new color-blocking perspective.

How To: You can imitate the color-blocking trend easily by pairing any complementary solid colors together when putting together an outfit, like a blue blouse with white pants and a yellow purse. Tada! Done.
