The Building Blocks of Colour Blocking

  1. Forget what your mom said.

When it comes to colour blocking throw all the tried and tested colour combinations out the window, and be experimental. Colours that wouldn’t usually be paired, could be the perfect match when it comes to colour blocking.

  1. Be Bold

Colour blocking is all about making a statement, so use bright colours to make an impact.

  1. Three’s a charms

Try not to over do it by always limiting your ensemble to no more than three colours.


  1. Still Confused?

Buy a garment that is ‘pre’ colour blocked.


  1. Allow your accessories to do the work.

If you don’t feel confident enough to do it with your clothing, look out for a handbag or pair of shoes that embraces this trend.
