The Royal Flair: Color Blocking
We are now a few weeks away from the beginning of Fashion Week events taking place in a variety of cities all across the world. Various fashion brands are preparing their campaigns and many celebrities are preparing their outfits to attend these events. Now is the time to decide which outfits to wear and what styles will stand the test of Fashion Week.
One trend that has continued to keep up with fashion needs has been color-blocking. Color-blocking is the use of contrasting blocks or panels of solid, typically using bright colors. As many people may be afraid to experiment with color in fashion, color-blocking can help with getting in some form of color while still staying with a comfort color through accessories. Some great examples of color-blocking in Spring 2022 fashion can be found here.
Specifically for men, color-blocking can be fun as it mostly requires two colors and minimal patterns or prints. Sometimes, men’s clothing can provide an easy “cheat code” by already color-blocking. Also, sticking to some color-matching rules can also help with getting into color-blocking. The three rules to color-matching are:
You can match complimentary colors, these are colors that are exact opposite from each other.
Match colors that are side-by-side each other on the color wheel
The Triad, these are colors that are exactly 4 spaces away from each other.
The most important aspect to remember with color blocking and fashion overall is to make sure what you are wearing is flattering on you and makes you feel confident and comfortable.
