Winter’s color-blocking with summer hues


My fashionistas, this was a Look I came up with for a spring holiday (in 2010) in the Central Alps.  Bright, clean, and fun, the combination of acid yellow and turquoise blue seems oddly like camouflage against the whitewashed backdrop of the Swiss Alps.

Winter’s color-blocking with summer hues

Color-blocking is a massive hit- be it in summer or winter. Whether you choose to block with separates or simply find a dress or top that embodies the technique, you don’t have to make a new purchase to participate in this trend. Sticking to the same color saturation within your outfit is one way to sport this trend, or simply go for color clash. No rules, just fun!

Top tip: For a true color block look, stick to blocks of solid colors. Never incorporate more than 3 colors in a color-blocking look. 

So, do away with depressing winter colors like black, brown or navy  for a color therapy especially if you want to look like film-stars in your holiday pictures in the Alps. If you do, drop me a line at the comment section as I like to hear what you have to say:)
