Color Blocking (Just a Try)

When I first saw color blocking on the runway, I knew I will definitely try it. However, for my first try, I only came up with a very simple ensemble. I'm still kinda afraid to experiment with my outfit. I guess I'll post another try when guts is ready. Haha!

I wore this outfit to my daughter’s friend’s birthday party. As a mom, I always make sure to wear something with happy colors everytime I go out with my little one or have to attend a children’s event. So, I wore a random pink cardigan, blue top from Forever 21, jeans from SM, Zara flats, and Celine quilted denim flap bag (gift from a dear friend).

Four Simple Tips on Color Blocking from Me :)
1. Afraid to do it the wrong way? Try to experiment with the primary colors red, blue, and yellow first.
2. Use the colors that don’t fight a lot like complementary colors and monochromatic colors.
3. Do not mix more than 5 colors in one outfit.
4. Remember, if you think it looks bad, then it looks BAD!

If you are a certified fashionista, I would like to hear from you. Any tips or advice on color blocking? TIA.

  2. I'm not a fashionista but I love color blocking coz it's cool in the eyes and trend for the summer. Colourful tops,accessories and nails for me^_^

  3. Have not tried this trend yet. Then again, most of my wardrobe pieces are in basic neutral colors like black and gray. Haha. Might try this once I get ahold of more colorful pieces. =)
