It’s no news that the colour blocking trend is alive and rocking this season. My first encounter with it got me thinking it was sort of a colour riot, so I resorted to making my research to get information about what it’s really about. To apply this look;
*You have to know your skin tone.
*Find colours that enhance it.
*Co-ordinate your colours accordingly.
What more way is there, to look fab this summer? Put the neutrals (the blacks and whites) to rest and glam up with bright colours. Dig out those gorgeous outfits from your closet.
Below is a picture of me colour blocking alongside others, watch and learn.

  1. Honestly, colour combination resides only in the minds of people who understands the techniques of colour seperations.

  2. That's one thing colour blocking does, it makes you break rules in a funky way...thanks for reading

  3. In the event of colour riot,appearance is always disgusting and critical too, because of the contrast.Em,i mean the clashes.

  4. especially when the colours are not bright
