Hey guys -welcome back! I think I am getting the hang of blogging a bit more frequently. Today I wanted to do something different and experiment with color blocking. What is color blocking, you ask?
We all remember the color wheel, right? We have our primary colors – red, yellow, and blue. Next comes the secondary colors – orange (mix of red and yellow), green (mix of yellow and blue), and purple (mix of blue and red). So image that these colors are on a wheel, with the secondary colors between the 2 primaries that make them up. So if we take yellow and purple, they are complementary to each other, and would make a high contrast look.
Purple and yellow right? Surprisingly, I didn’t have too many purple items that would be good for the look that I wanted to achieve. And I hardly have any yellow items in my inventory…yikes! I did like how the pink trench coat from Ricielli looked, so I decided to start from there. I took one of my favorite pairs of jeans (from Zaara) and tinted it purple, and added a splash of yellow color by using an old dress from Paradisis as my top under my coat. To add more yellow, I used yellow accessories that I think worked out nicely. Next time I will make sure to use more of the complementary color in my outfit…I think this would had totally rocked if I had like a long yellow sleeveless shirt with maybe a cropped jacket in a third color.
