Color Block

Color blocking is not a brand new trend but even as someone who is always on the lookout for fashion inspiration I don't see many people wearing the style. While pulling clothing for our most recent fashion show I got to experiment with the idea while putting together a scene dedicated to the look.

A few guidelines that I like to work with:

1. What works best for this style is bold solid pieces. Pastels are too whimsical and if there is a print you usually don't get the same effect. 
2. The look is best with three pieces as opposed to just two, showing a real comparison in color. Which of the two pictures above intrigues you more?
3. Try to use colors on opposite sides of the color wheel to add more interest. 

Here is another fantastic example courtesy LookBook
