The traditional way of wearing “pairable” colours is so boring. Why can pink not go with orange? Or red with yellow? Why not pick colours the crazy way and have some fun with them? Colour blocking as a trend is picking up these days and we’re glad that we can finally pair colours that make for some crazy combinations. Get inspired to colour block from these outfits. Warning: Not for the faint hearted. ;)
1. Colour blocking for starters
One of the most commonly worn colour-block combination is black and white. It works for people who are just getting on the colour blocking bandwagon and is perfect for a casual day out. Add a further pop of colour with an orange clutch and you’re all set to make heads turn. A white tee paired with black tights helps you look slimmer if you are heavy-bottomed.
2. Making lunch memorable
A colour that balances glamour and subtlety really well? Turquoise! It can be paired with light as well as dark shades. This summer, pick a lime or yellow top to go with this pair of turquoise jeans. Yellow and turquoise make a cheerful combination. To balance out all that colour, pick a simple brown or beige pair of shoes and bag.
3. For professional colour blockers!
For women with a narrow frame, a cold shoulder dress is perfect. It draws attention to the upper body and is also very now! Cinch your waist with an orange belt to add contrast and to make your frame look slimmer. This super chic, rose gold bag compliments your outfit and is perfect for a dinner date.
4. For the causal crusader
Dazzle up your casual Fridays at work with this simple-yet-chic combination that is sure to impress. Pair this blue top with these mint pastel culottes - they easily transition from work to party. The entire outfit comes together with this olive green bag.
5. The body-confident diva
This colour-blocked bodycon is perfect if you’re a body-confident person. Since this dress already incorporates four colours, keep your accessories minimal. Pair it with a grey bag and a similar coloured pair of heels to complete your look.
