Color blocking is one way to punch up your outfits. You can see examples in just about every clothing store, but sometimes it’s a little intimidating to take the plunge and actually wear a color blocked ensemble. As with most things, it’s usually easier to start slow and work your way into a full on color explosion. Take today’s outfit for example. I chose colors that complimented and were more muted than bright. I’ve always loved blue and green together so it was a very natural combination for me. The leopard shoes were a must because they add a little interest to the look. I tried several necklace combinations before opting for the understated silver one.
I’ll be doing more experimenting with color blocking in the coming weeks – stay tuned!
