Don’t be scared: color-blocking is a completely fresh take on wearing bright hues! Simply remember to choose colors that flatter your skin tone and and are in the same family, like jewels or neons. Take a look at Camilla Belle in Gucci rocking jewel tones and gold accessories at a recent event:
If you do it right, it works! She was even able to incorporate other trends – like high waisted pants and an oversized blazer – into the mix. For a more subtle option, try varying shades of the same color.
Have you tested out color-blocking yet?
