Bold on Colors. Look Glam in Colors

May 5, 2012

 Three colors for an exciting look? Yes, 2 or 3 colors, strategically paired, contrasting yet complimenting each other-that is COLOR BLOCKING of bold and bright colors. It is what is seen in the fashion runways for this season.

The Color Wheel will be the greatest aid to create this look. The Rule of Two-Thirds will be the best theory to apply in combining the colors. Its making an equilateral triangle as seen on a color wheel.

Suggested color combo:

1. Coral-grey- ivory

2. Cobalt Blue-Orange – yellow

3.  Chocolate Brown- Pink -Peach

4.  Teal, Bright Blue -Purple

5. Bright Pink-deep blue – white

6. Green-purple-Gold

Tips on how to look best, and not show the flaws with COLOR BLOCKING:

To divert attention from unwanted curves, use dark or neutral panels around the waistline or stomach: A black wide belt, on an orange dotted silk blouse and blue chiffon ankle length skirt.

To flaunt your best assets, use bright colored blocks and lines to draw more attention to it:

A bright pink v-neckline top over a cheetah printed mini skirt.

Accessories are never exempted. To complete the look, add it on.

Piles of colored bangles on a black and gray tunic dress and bright colored peep toe.

It may sound so chaotic, but it looks amazing. How these 3 colors can look together and bring an explosion! So next time, you go out, search your closet with 2 or 3 colors. The more bright and loud it is, the more BOLD it gets. So get everyone’s attention and paint the town with BLOCKS OF COLOR.

    That is a very smart idea, very helpful when figuring out what colors go together. It takes some practice but after a while you will be a pro at color theory. Color is so much more fun than just sticking to black, neutrals, and white.
