Colour blocking is a fundamental part of every wardrobe, whether you’re a fashion amateur or well-polished with your Vera Wangs’ and Raf Simmons’. ?It’s says to the world?I know what I’m doing, without really knowing anything at all. And really, isn’t that what we all need?
It’s particularly deadly if, like me, your wardrobe goes through random periods of the same colour (mine’s pink right now, wbu?) because it’s a cost-effective and trendy way to get the most out of the things you already have stacked inside your wardrobe.
International supermodel and American sweetheart Gigi Hadid knows how to perfectly colour-block and, superbly, showed us EXACTLY how to nail it.
Here are two principle guidelines to keep in mind for future colour-blocking:
Go Bright Or Go Home
There is no room for subtlety here, girls. Be not afraid of bright colours …
Clash ‘N’ Block
Colour blocking doesn’t have to be confined to a single colour -oh no. Try choosing a base colour (like this striking orange below), and mix it up with clashing prints in similar tones. Have fun with it and make colour-blocking your own!
Take a look at our Gigi gallery above for some serious colour-block inspiration, then go forth and block.
