Christmas Blocked Brights


There is nothing that screams Christmas like brights and better when blocked. 2013 made it official that color was here to stay and what better tribute than with Christmas brights. Putting colors together might seem easy to some of us while the rest of us shy from the thought of it, but not to worry, am here to share some fave tips and tricks.
1) Team It With Denim!
Chambray counts as a blue, you know. Take a bright-hued pair of pants and team them with a butter soft chambray/denim shirt and neutral flats.
2) Clash Completely
Go for bold and wear similar hue. My favorite new way to wear colour is to pick a shade and wear it head to toe in differing tones. Embellished accessories up the wow factor on this look.
3) Mix The Print
Neons or citrus colours are the perfect addition to a pattern. Pick a graphic motif or busy print and build your outfit around it. The colourblocked piece is the finishing touch. Just remember to keep accessories and makeup clean and neutral.
4) Play With Pastels
Toughen up pale colors by teaming them with dark wintery shades. A candy-floss pink a-line skirt contrasts a buttoned-up forest green blouse beautifully, for a fresh, new approach to clean daytime dressing.
5) Belt It
Use a belt to create a color block effect. A contrast color accent belts allows you to try this trend without layering on different colors!
6) Block the Shoes
Let your shoes in on the act by selecting bold hued footwear. Pairing that with an alternate colored dress allows you to try color blocking in a different way!
With these few tips and tricks, you can rock that color for your festive season and have fun while at it.
