New colours on the block!



Posted on April 28 2021

We have all been there, ladies. It is morning, you are already running late for work and find yourself stumped with no clue on what to wear! Our wardrobes are filled with jackets, pants, knits, trenches & so much more. However, putting all the pieces together can be fairly overwhelming.


Thankfully, there is one saviour to combat our problems. Colour blocking! Colour blocking can be described as making a statement with the use of 2 or 3 bold and bright colours. This trend has made its debut from the 1960’s and 1970’s when experimentation with clothing was a powerful act of revolution and free expression. Traditional colour blocking consists of putting together two or three different, but complementary colours together in one outfit.


Winter 2021 encompasses quite a few bright colour combos with no rules on how to mix and match them. It is time to jazz up your daily look by making use of this trend.


Colour Block Trends for 2021

  • Pink and green

If worn correctly, this colour combo can look fabulously stylish! Pair your outfit with some basic jewellery to complete your look.

This combo may seem a bit strange at first, but you will certainly make heads turn! The pair also has a bit of a calming aura about it. It could be the soothing blue and refreshing green that reminds us a bit about nature.

  • Pink and red

An all-time classic and favourite, pink and red. Red is bold, it screams confidence while pink on the other hand is soft and dainty. When mixed together, these two colours make the perfect match!
