Summer Trend Alert: Color Blocking Pastels

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!

Dressed Up

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!

Business Basics

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. 

Comfy Casual

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.
