Colorblocked

Hello Seafashionistas!!

I know that I have talked about color blocking in previous posts, but this is a trend that I just don’t want to move away from. Fortunately for myself, it is popular for upcoming spring 2013 trends, so we are in the clear! As mentioned in my “Black and White” post (here), Black and white blocked together is a hot trend this winter and spring and is especially popular in handbags this season, as shown with the handbag below. It can be nerve-racking to pair together multiple colors, so I always say to start small until you get comfortable with it and go from there. As shown below, I pair black and white with a single bright color. This combination can be very simple (as many of us already have so much black in our closets!), and you will still master the “color block.” If you are feeling adventurous, some of my favorite color combos are teal and dark blue, orange and and bright pink, teal and orange, and orange and purple. Long story short, when it comes to color blocking, let your imagination run wild! There probably will be the same crazy combination you come up with on the runway this spring, so put your brave face on and try it out! At the bottom of the post I will put up a few links to color-blocked shirts for reasonable prices!!
