Welcome to the Block Party

With color blocking being the latest and hottest trend, I am in my glory and am loving life! Color blocking can be risky and there are many ways to pair colors based on color schemes, tones, shades, and hues. Ex: If you pair green and yellow together you are a creating an analogous scheme because they are next together on the color wheel. According to Lucky magazine, If you are having trouble pairing colors together try these out:
1. Cobalt Blue, Yellow, Orange
2. Chocolate Brown, Pink, Peach
3. Purple, Bright Blue, Teal
4. Deep Blue, Bright Pink, White
5. Coral, Grey, Ivory
Color blocking is a trend based on the simplicity of fun. It is all about creating the most constrasted and an unlimited number of color combinations possible. Below are examples directly from my blog, steelmagnoliasfashion.blogspot.com.
Yellow, Purple, Red, and Green
Purple and Neon Coral
Royal Blue, Orange and Yellow
Turquoise, Orange and Hot Pink
Orange, Green and NavyYellow and Turquoise Yellow, Pink and Purple Coral, Hot Pink and Mint
If you are still totally afraid and completely lost with this new trend, check out the video attached to help bring out the fashionista within!
