Color-Block Craze





COLOR-BLOCK -  creating an outfit by putting areas or blocks of solid color next to each other. It can include monotone, bright colors, muted colors, contrasting and complimentary colors. 

Here are some of the Hollywood celebrities who have been infected by this Color-Block Craze.

Celebrity Color-Block Craze

It combines the use of two or more blocks of color in an ensemble. This could be for a top, trouser, skirt, tunic, dress, shoes and to test your guts, even for hair too! i hope it makes a fun read.


It is not a new trend as such but it is definitely back with a BIG BANG!

Don't you just love Skittles? Then any color combination is fantastic if you can pull it off properly. Red, purple and orange sounds mad but will look stunning! Do not combine more than five colors. It’s not that it doesn’t look nice, but you will look very ‘ramp’ish and the reason for this blog is to give the readers what they can wear casually. Moreover, more colors will keep cutting your body shape here and there, making it a not so beautiful sight. Choose what you want to color block and keep the rest of your look simple. For example, if you opt for a colorblocked bag, go easy on the clothes and shoes. You don’t want to look like a walking rubik's cube, do you?

In my opinion, people nowadays are way too liberated even in fashion, so yeah-ANY color will make a good match! For the beginners of this craze, don't be shy to experiment your colored tops and bottoms until you find your way to Color-Block rocking state! 

Here are my own Color-Blocking experiment, as always, for different occasions and different personalities (Do i still need to say this in my future posts? lol)
