TGIF!! Hope you loves had a productive week! I’ve had a really hectic past couple of days settling back in after all the madness of NYFW, trying to catch up on all of my emails as well as finish up some new exciting projects for you guys! So before I hide away for a couple of days, I wanted to share one of my final and favorite looks from NYFW + 3 ways to color block the right way! I was never a huge fan of color blocking because it used to be all about combining a lot of bright and bold colors together which was never quite my style. But as of late, designers are gradually starting to pull away from intense color blocking and have started to experiment with more muted colorways. Not only is this way of color blocking more pleasant to the eye, but it’s much easier to pull together without having to worry about whether or not you’ve gone too far! Here are 3 ways to master the art of colorblocking this season:

1.Don’t overdo it!!

Since the metallic skirt is already the focal point of the look, I topped it off with a color block coat made of of muted tones that didn’t compete with it. What I love about this coat is that it’s more versatile than the bright, color-block pieces that are impossible to wear more than once.

2. Stick to 2-3 contrasting colors

Here I focused on violet, navy and grey. Color-blocking doesn’t always mean bright, bold and intense colors!! If you don’t feel comfortable wearing bright colors, subdued shades work too!

3. Go with one color-scheme

For this look, I choose colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. I find this color combination is always more cohesive and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Whereas, choosing colors opposite to each other on the wheel could be more piercing to the eye.

The look on my face when I found out the blizzard brought in 10 inches of snow the morning I wore sock boots…perfect timing right?!

    I totally agree. Colour blocking doesn’t have to be only about bold and bright colours, we can use more neutral tones or even pastel ones! I love the way you approach colour clocking with this outfit. That coat is so elegant…and that skirt is a lovely addition of print. This outfit looks timeless, I love it.

    You look gorgeous!!!!
