LOTD: Vibrant Colour Blocking

Vibrant Colour Blocking


Colour Blocking is definitely this seasons must have staple ... It's truly one of the best way to make a statement ... When colour blocking it's all about having FUN with colours that either compliments with one another or create contrast with each other, basically the key is to strategically pair pieces together to create the blocking.

We start off Today's look with a Shell Pink Button-Up w/ Studded Collar Tips for some edge and buttoned it all the way to the top to give it polish.  We paired it off with a Tangerine Coloured Soft Denim Skinnies to create contrast with the pink top.  I don’t know about any of you but I have been loving Orange lately and it's a been a go to colour of mine for S/S 2012.  Over the button-up is this Boyfriend Style Blazer w/ a Rose Pink Lining which also adds contrast to our current colour blocked pieces, while the boxy fit of the blazer provides androgyny and polish to the look.  To break off the look I have on my trusty Beige Woven Waist Belt to add a neutral accent.

On bottom, I continued on the Neutral Accents via Nude Patent Lace-Up Oxfords.  Moving on the accessories, I always like to pair pieces with Gold accents whenever I where Orange, as I think the tones compliments well with each other so I have on a Gold Boyfriend Style Watch, a Belt Style Clamp Bangle [this is actually one of my favourite jewellery piece at the moment], a Turquoise Beaded Gold Bracelet to add a little bit more contrast to the look and the final jewellery piece which is definitely a favourite of mine is a Brocade Style Necklace that I got for £1.00 in the SALE.  I painted the crystal pieces with Coral and Pink Flamingo Nail Varnish from Barry M.  The Necklace adds to the Pink and Orange Shades on this look and this piece can also be colour blocked on its own.

Lastly, I went for a more Neutral piece to carry my belonging via a Taupe Leather Carry-On Satchel w/ a Detachable Cross-Body Strap which provides Polish and complete a Vibrant Colour Blocking Ensemble.
