I was inspired to write today’s blog because of all the comments I have been getting about this color block look I wore to celebrate National Margarita Day with Lime-a-Rita. I am definitely not a pro when it comes to the concept of color blocking, but with the help of stylist Isabelle Sabel, I did pick up a tip or two that I wanted to share with you!
- Flag Pole Two-Piece – How cute is this suit?! My favorite thing about the color blocking trend is mix-and-matching different colors. Isabelle taught me that just because you wouldn’t necessarily put these pieces together on your own, doesn’t mean they won’t look great together. It’s fun to play around and see what works, and this suit already does all the work for you!
- Baublebar Margarita Beaded Tassel Earrings – Add an instant pop of color to any look with these fiesta-ready earrings. I love the idea of contrasting these multi-color beaded earrings with a solid outfit, like a dark green dress or yellow top. The pinks and reds will have a stand-out moment!
- LNDR Wildcat Sports Bra – We all know working out is NOT my idea of fun, so at least my outfit has to be. I didn’t even realize, but a lot of my activewear actually already incorporates this trend.Clearly, I like this style because most of my sports bras and leggings look similar to this bra from LNDR. Maybe there is a Fashionista inside me after all? 😉
- Data Mix “The Volon” Small Bag – An aqua blue and pink dream in the form of a handbag! My advice for any of you that are nervous about attempting this trend, is to start small. You can show off your style, without committing to a full-blown color block outfit from head-to-toe. Adding an accessory like this one to your outfit can easily add interest and showcase your personality at the same time.
- Botkier Paloma Ankle Strap Sandal – Hello! Check out these shoes! A bold architectural heel and platform elevate a scene-stealing, color-block sandal that will complement SO many different pieces. The combinations of pink are subtle enough to match with other colors but will still stand out on their own.
And there you have it! A color blocking crash course with a few of my own suggestions for trying out this trend. I know that pairing bright colors together can seem scary and intimidating at first, but trust me, if I can get it, y’all will do just fine. So, get blockin’ babes!
