    Color Blocking; Put Up the Stop Sign With Your Outfit

    28. July 2011

    Color blocking can be defined as a stylistic fashion technique where different colored outfits, that complement each other, are paired together. This is a bold fashion trend which requires the wearer to have basic color-wheel pairing knowledge.

    The colors chosen for any color blocking effect should not only complement each other, but they should also support each other.

    Color blocking trends incorporate vivacious colors and definitely get the wearer noticed. The pairing technique relies on the primary colors (blue, red and yellow), which are then paired to create secondary color effect (orange, green and purple).

    Likewise, primary and secondary colors can be paired for tertiary color out-looks. Color blocking tints are created by pairing black or white colored outfits with other energetic-colored garments.

    Don’t forget about accessories when color blocking.  Accessorize using different-colored jewelry to complement the color blocking effect.

    Similar to all other outfit pairings, if it does not look good then it probably is not the right pairing for you. Mix and match different colored outfits to find color blocking effects that work for you.

    Who said that earrings should be worn on the ears, rings on fingers, bangles on the hands and brooches pinned to the lapel of outfits? The fact is that this is the way jewelry has been worn as long as can be remembered, but it is time to break the norm and come up with unique ways to wear jewelry.

    Wearing rings on necklace chains is not a new trend. It is however a breath of fresh air from wearing rings on fingers, as they have been worn for ages.

    Earrings make great pins or brooches and can be pinned anywhere on an outfit. The trick is to pin them where they are likely to be noticed, especially if they are stud earrings. The hair can be pinned up using loop earrings or the earrings could be used as add-ons on the hair.

    Necklaces are currently looped around the hand, and worn as bangles. Try looping necklaces on your ankles as well when wearing shorts or skirts. Different necklace lengths can be worn at a go, with vests or low cut tops. The trick is to layer the necklaces in order of chunkiness, with respect to the bead sizes.

    Last but not least, contrast jewelry with the outfit worn. The jewelry should not strictly match with the outfit; wearing various shades of jewelry can help an outfit acquire the ‘pop-out’ effect. Use jewelry to emphasize different regions of the body. For instance, wear chandelier earrings to draw emphasis to the face or a trendy belt for a cinched-waist effect.

Pairing earrings and outfits may be second nature to most women; however, there are a few guidelines which everyone can use to best pair different outfits with these ear pieces.

    Studs are best worn when out on the beach, during work outs or with outfits that have embellishments integrated onto the fabric. They help to keep attention on the wearer’s outfit as opposed to the ear jewelry. Stud earrings are also commonly worn by men; however, men’s stud earrings come with larger stones than those meant for women.

    Tear drop earrings are a bit more pronounced that studs. They pair well with everyday clothes for a chic look.

    Chandelier earrings are the dressier jewelry pieces out of the bunch. They pair well with evening wear as well as simple dresses.
