Color Blocking: Verbosity in Vain

It’s one thing to have a sense for fashion. It’s another thing to know the ins-and-outs, and acknowledge that “Wow, there’s a word/phrase for that?”

Per about.com, color blocking is defined as follows:
Colorblocking is a method of wearing multiple solid colors in an outfit. It is sometimes written as color blocking, with two separate words. The outfit revolves around a palette of two or more colors, usually in bold and bright shades. The result is a simple yet very chic look. Prints and patterns are typically not used in colorblocking, as such designs would take away from the “blocked” visual.

The concept sounds easy, yes? If we are jumping on board with this trend for the first time, it can be a little bit more daunting to actually pick pieces from our own wardrobes.

Video blogger Kitty Cotten from Minneapolis gives us a bit more in-depth look at colorblocking and how to find what we are looking for in our own closets.
