Color is here to stay and I mean bold stripes, neon, pastels and mixmatch of various colors.  These days, most individuals embrace colors and are not afraid to boldly make a statement through their personal styles. The color blocking trend has be worn stylishly and creatively. On the other hand, we’ve seen many people who have basically insulted this trend due because of lack of understanding of the basics.

Indeed, it’s important that we understand how to mix and match different colors to make an outfit portray our personality or otherwise, depending on the event.

Although this post isn’t about learning how to combine colors, let’s briefly go back to basics here. Using the chart above, we have 2 major categories: Complementary and primary colors.

The fashion world has gone from combining two outfits to a complete juxtaposition of colors in one outfit. The fashion icon (my fashion best friend in my head) Victoria Beckham, continues to show us this trend through her collections. I particularly love her pencil fitted stretch crepe dresses. Such dresses can be worn for various occasions while serving different purposes, including enhancing our shapes.

The fusion of two solid colors or in some cases more, have inspired my personal styles over the years. Seeing how designers create different structures and designs while adding other trends like prints, is just amazing. So, instead of sticking to the regular neutrals or matching the same colors (which most people do alot), I add a pop of color to my outfit.

This spring, you can add color to your outfits generally. If you’re not sure of how to mix different color of outfits,one of the best ways is to look for that dress that completes the look.
