Keeping it in the colour family

The art of colour blocking can be tricky as one must need to know which colours go well together and which ones clash. The bolder the colours, the more careful you have to be in choosing which ones to match. No matter how fab your outfit is, if the chosen colours are wrong, then it can just ruin the whole effect. If in doubt, there are some guidelines you can follow.

The key to color blocking is choosing up to 3 colours you can use in your outfits. Choosing colours in the same colour family is the safest way for the colour blocking newbies. A great example for perfecting the colour blocking trend is this beautiful girl photographed in Milan. She is wearing a pink ’60s style dress under a blood red leather jacket, a printed scarf, a maroon Louis Vuitton bag and platform shoes. Her look can be loud and bright but the colours she chose are in the same family, and work perfectly well together.
