So far, 2020 has been a year full of bold colors in fashion. Brightly colored monochromatic sets made a big splash earlier this year. However, as we move into summer and some states near the end of quarantine, there’s no better time than now to make a statement by mixing many colors into one look.
Color blocking in fashion involves pairing pieces in opposing colors together into one look. A color’s ‘opposite’ is based on its position on the color wheel. Warm-toned colors like orange and red are opposite to cool-toned colors like blue and green. Color blocking pastels and neons make for the perfect summer statement. Below are three easy ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe!
I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to be wearing on a hot summer day is a pair of jeans! Midi skirts are an absolute MUST for the summer season– they’re light, comfortable, and chic! Pair one with a different colored top and pair of shoes, and you got yourself an eye-catching look for a day out in the sun!
Pantsuits- or power suits- are a timeless classic that never go out of style. Yet, sometimes the routine of wearing a matching set to work day after day can become tired and predictable. Bright colored suits have always been a great way to mix things up. This summer, try mixing pieces from different sets to create a polychrome look that is sure to make a statement in the office.
You can create a polychromatic look from things you already have in your closet! Don’t be afraid to take risks and pair pieces together that typically wouldn’t match. Adding a colorful handbag is a great way to make your look — search vintage and secondhand stores to find fun, unique accessories.
