Color blocking is one of my favorite trends. My personal style is mainly classic/bohemian but ALWAYS with bold colors. I love throwing a solid top and bottom together that are either completely different colors or shades of the same color.
What I love about color blocking, as it applies to seasons/skin tones, is it allows you to have a bit more fun with your “forbidden” colors. As long as you wear a bold color in your season for the blouse/sweater/tank/tee/top part of dress, etc. you can go wild with the skirt/pants/shorts/bottom part of dress, etc. and shoes. Since the weather is cooling off, you can have more fun with tights as well. You can ground the look by having something nude or neutral–particularly your legs or shoes if you have a lot going on above that.
For example, La is a Winter, and after doing her color consultation, we are both keeping an eye out for a color-blocking outfit for her consisting of a blue top and red pencil skirt.
