Is your wardrobe feeling a bit drab? Are you stuck in a style rut? It’s time to make a bold statement with some bright and beautiful colours! Let’s explore how to pair bold colours together.
Colour Blocking Basics
So, what is colour blocking anyway? It’s the art of pairing two or more solid, contrasting colours together in one outfit. The key is to select colours that look great when they are placed side-by-side. Start by choosing one primary colour and then select one or two shades that complement it. For example, you might choose yellow as your primary colour and then pair it with royal blue and navy blue for contrast.
When selecting clothes for colour blocking, it’s important to choose pieces that fit well and flatter your body type. This will ensure that the combination of colours looks intentional and stylish rather than forced or awkward. You can also use different textures and prints along with solids to create an eye-catching look – just be sure not to go overboard. If you haven’t colour-blocked an outfit, start simple.
Once you have chosen your main colours, decide if you want them all on top or if you want to split them up between the top and bottom of your outfit. Try experimenting with different combinations until you find something that works for you. Similarly, if you want to add more than two colours into your ensemble, start with two main hues first before adding in a third shade as an accent colour.
Pairing bold colours together requires some thoughtfulness but once you get the hang of it, it can be an easy way to brighten up the long winter days. With practice comes confidence; soon enough you’ll be able to rock any colour combination with ease. So go ahead – break out those brights and express yourself through fashion.
