Colour blocking allows your outfits to look more fashion-forward and will add a point of interest to your look. Colour blocking is exploring with colours that are opposites on the colour wheel, pairing them together to make interesting combinations.

NEED A COMBINATION OF COLOUR

We all have a standard go to outfit, yes, those favourite black jeans! Well why not opt for a colour combination instead. COLOUR! This shift to colour will take your Autumn/Winter look to a more luxurious feel which will carry you all the way through to Spring.

YELLOW & BLUE
Either one or both colours is a shade to make this classic combination look chic. Don’t forget that denim is also blue, and a great thing to rock this time of year!

PINK & RED
This is one of the favorite combinations of all time and it’s incredibly chic. Both these colors are trending for the season and you can go bold with both. Try to pair a bright pink fuchsia with a bright red to really try something high fashion. 

Have some fun!

LILAC or PURPLE ….. PAIRED WITH EITHER RED OR YELLOW
Our inner 15-year-old is screaming “YES.”
This Ultimate shade of luxury is the color of royalty for a reason… Go tonal in lilac; then ground with black leather. Nervous? Just add a jolt of purple via accessories. Deep purple and bright red are the dream colour team.

KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY
When you think of colour blocking you think of contrasts but one of the coolest ways to inject colour into your look is by working with colours in the same family (warm and cool). Think about it – pink and orange or pink and red are all warm colours and work amazingly when you colour block!

CONTRAST WITH THE COLOUR WHEEL
Like we said before, colour blocking does involve a bit of colour contrast! When trying to understand what colours work well together, think of what colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel. Purple and orange, for example, work well together! See how well it comes together!
