Color Block with a Modern Twist

Color blocking simply means wearing two or more solid hues resulting in a catchy yet chic look. Simply put, it's adding blocks of solid colors to a look and has been around for a while. This trend is still holding strong and is not going anywhere anytime soon. 

While neutral and subtle colors still look great together, a trend setting modern twist of pairing shades that are opposite on the color wheel make for an eye catching and edgier vibe that's not for the faint hearted. Opposite color pairs like orange and blue are known as complimentary colors meaning they produce greater contrast than either would with any other color. With the right accessories in the mix, this combo can effortlessly take your look from daytime to date night. Remember this look here?

A color blocked look still has the propensity (gosh, I'm becoming my Pastor, she uses this word pretty often. Love you Pastor Joy!) to make one stand out in the street style game.
The best thing about this not so new trend is that there are no set rules. Just experiment and have fun with it. I guess that could pass for the rule? Ha!

 Today I'm showing a look where my colorful separates are doing all the talking paired with toned down accessories. And I mean toned down in terms of color. After all, there's nothing like basic black to anchor bold shades.

Your thoughts?
