Summer Style: Color Block


Color blocking puts a fun twist on basic matching when creating outfits. There is a science to color blocking and that's use of the color wheel. Pairing complementary, colors opposite each other, or analogous colors, colors close together, creates all the difference visually. Here's a good site to help get you all caught up on the color wheel and such. 

In this look I went for analogous colors, which are 3 or so colors close together. This creates a harmonious look that's not only pleasant to the eye but fun! I love the color green and incorporated most of my kelly green pieces -- the cropped high waisted pant, the laser cut out clutch and the ankle strap heels. 

I went with a cow like neck for this cobalt blue blouse. The draped relaxed top pairs well with the fitted structured bottom. I accessorized with gold as found in the clutch hardware, watch and bangle. I then finished the look with a navy blue blazer to add yet another colorful pop.  

This look is a sophisticated color blocking look perfect for spring time at the office, or a toned down similar version could be worn at a family picnic with green shorts, blue tank, you catch my drift.

  1. Hi! I also bought the same full version of this Outfit blog template by Themexpose but I was kind of frustrated because it didnt turn out as I expect it to be. I came across your beautiful blog while trying to find solutions on the glitches. I already contacted the support team a couple of times but they seemed to be very busy to get back to me. I love the appearance of your blog both in desktop and mobile view. I'm beginning to lose hope with this template but I dont wanna give up yet bec I really love the design. Will you be able to help me fix my problems?

    1. Homepage in desktop and mobile view is not appearing properly. It does not look like the one being shown on the template live demo.

    2. The top navigation bar (dropdown menu) and top social buttons are not appearing in mobile view.

    3. Help me how can I show the desktop sidebar widgets at the bottom part when viewed in mobile view. (Just like the one you did in your blog)
