Colour Blocking is an unstoppable trend that always makes its appearance back onto the runway! This remarkable fashion technique has been something the “I don’t do fashion, I am fashion” community has grasped and embraced whole-heartedly, because of its sense of being EFFORTLESS!

On the streets you will find various people who aren’t necessarily fashion conscious rocking the Colour Blocking trend. These vary from bright/bold primary colours to the natural tones too, such as brown and beige, even black and white (because those are colours too).

Good colour sections:

Primary colours (Red, Blue and Yellow) are ideally where you would want to start because these colours work well with one another. The colours on either side of the primary colours are also good combinations, and if you want to make a stronger statement then pairing colours opposite each other on the wheel is the way to go.

You could add a third and fourth colour by experimenting with your accessories such as bangles, shoes, bags etc.

The do’s and don’ts:

DO be careful, you do not want to be looking like someone from the 1980’s. Try to keep a modern twist on it unless that is the vibe you are going for.

DON’T hold back this summer and rock your blocks!
