How To Create Fun Colorblocked Looks For Spring
The key to colorblocking? Don’t think too hard about it! The trend originally emerged decades ago and primarily featured bold colors that wouldn’t typically “go together”. But because fashion trends have become much more bold and creative in general, colorblocking pretty much encompasses any and all color combinations with no real rules to follow.
Pink and orange – yes! Blue and green – to be sure! Yellow and orange – yes! Even black and white – of course! Outside of the obvious, even simple color palettes that block white or black against a second color works. Additionally, incorporating some small patterns like a subtle stripe within your colorblocking look is trendy… Furthermore, we are even seeing a lot of monochromatic looks like purple on purple or pink on pink.
To address a question we get asked a lot… Does color saturation matter? To be sure, colorblocking used to be primarily with bold, heavily saturated colors. However, today almost anything goes, as long as it is pleasing to your eye. Thus, you can go ahead and pair your pale pink with royal blue. Or your powder blue with your navy. Or key lime green with bright red. Said another way, it’s truly about what looks good to YOU and feels good on YOU!
Let’s look at some styled color blocked looks to give you guys some ideas on how to do this trend!
