What's this new craze on color blocking? did i hear you say its old skool? TRUE! why is it everywhere you look, cos its back with a bang. OH YES!!!(like my friend kiki would Although its back like never before and like every other things in life, you have to be careful on how you block 'em colors. so here is the 411 on how its done.

you got so many bright colors in your closet and just don't know what to do with them, well fashion allows you to pair them up but!!! with certain other bright colors. there is a pattern when it comes to pairing them up to avoid looking like a disco light. here is a color chat wheel chat that proves to be helpful.

1. Colors directly next to each other (i.e. yellow and yellow-orange; yellow and yellow-green; violet and blue-violet, etc.)
2. Colors that form right (90 degree) angles with each other (i.e. yellow and
red-orange; blue and violet-red; green and orange, etc.)
3. Colors directly across from each other (i.e. yellow and violet; blue and orange; red and green, etc.)
4. Colors that form a T (i.e. blue, orange, and violet-red; yellow, violet, and red-orange; yellow,
blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
5. Colors that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow, violet, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)


Brown is pairable with any of the color on the wheel beacuse it netural so try throwing some cobalt blue , fuchsia or bright red on chocolate brown. Black, white, denim blue are all netural colors so they pretty much go with any color. colors can be tricky but live a bit on the edge , try out fuchisa pink with red, peach on violet, oange mixed with green and turqouise gives you a good color blocking statement, shows you know your fashion. so try it on, play with the colors , its fun as long as you got the color wheel.
