Outfit of the Week: Color Blocking

Color Blocking

My resolution this month is to step outside the box when it comes to my style. One trend I've been wanting to try is the popular-and-perfect-for-spring color blocking. If you follow me on Twitter, you got a preview of the outfit earlier this week. I took inspiration from WhatIWore, AllysonInWonderland, and Sonia's guest post on color blocking. I was really happy with the positive feedback I got from passersby. Here's how I wore it (and how to make it work for you):

  • I have a cardi set in yellow & a cardi set in coral (from New York & Company). I simply took the tank from one and wore with the cardigan from the other. I can switch this look from coral cardi with yellow tank and have another color blocking look! Yay for multi-tasking outfits.
  • These salmon pants, from the Gap, can easily transition from spring to summer.
  • Since I really wanted to go all out with the color blocking, I added this turquoise necklace.
  • My hair was straight and my makeup was subdued, since I'm wearing such a bright outfit.
Too much color? Try these options to make the color blocking trend your own.
  • Choose two of the bright colors instead of all four.
  • Keep it neutral. Wear black or khaki pants as your neutral color.
  • Change your necklace from turquoise to black.
Are you into the color blocking trend?


  1. Good job at color blocking. Love the outfit.
    The part I love about color blocking is unexpected color combinations. I did a post about this last week.

  2. Love it! :) Without realizing it I did just that today...two colors only but it was fun. :)

    Happy Tuesday.


  3. Great tips - and I love the addition of that gorgeous blue necklace.

  4. Color blocking is definitely on my must try list! However, my wardobe is mostly black, so until I can get a few more colors in there, I'll have to pass on this trend.

  5. I love this look! Bright colors make outfits really fun! My favorite is the turquoise necklace :)

  6. Love, love, love this trend! Those colors are great. I've been doing my best to think outside the color box too, with splashes of mixed bold colors here and there. I still need to go full on some time soon though.


  7. Awesome job rocking the salmon pants! NY&C has the best cardi's and that turquoise necklace ties it all together perfectly.

  8. lovely color palette!
    i suppose it's time for me to replace my fall/winter closet with all my spring/summer clothes that have been stored safely in vacuum bags. i love this weather!

  9. I'm really getting into the colour blocking trend this season...I'm definitely in need of a serious colour dose after what seemed like an endless winter. That salmon colour that the pants come in is one of my favourites this spring.
