STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Solve The Color-Block Conundrum

Spring is officially in full swing (well, it is according to the calendar). This means it is time to ditch the drab color palette and expand your horizons. Spring is all about renewal and growth, and what better way to embody that than to embrace all the colors in the spectrum? Color-blocking is a fun way to incorporate all your favorite shades and make a bold statement.

Matching is a complicated style concept. There are age-old rules about what colors pair well with others and which are taboo to be seen anywhere near each other. However, I think rules are made to be broken when it comes to style and expression. Color-blocking allows you to create unexpected looks and add a personal touch that really pops. This Fashionista flawlessly embodies the trend. I spotted her gorgeous canary yellow coat all the way down the busiest street on campus. Its vibrant hue and fun texture truly make the piece unique and anything but bland. Her burgundy cross-body bag is both on-trend and functional for carrying anything she may need for class. Together, the yellow and red tones are a dynamic duo that exudes both a sophisticated and wild side.

The key to cute color-blocking is to be fearless and have fun. An orange crop top and purple midi skirt can take your night out on the town up a notch. For a more casual and refined take on the trend, try matching your favorite sky blue sneakers with a royal blue dress. The possibilities are endless when you open yourself up to combining colors in new ways. Pairing together complementary colors is sure to get you compliments, no matter where you go!
