Color Blocking Styles | Bold & Colorful Ladies Fashion For Any Season

Updated on September 20, 2015

If you've been following the trend of what women are wearing out there, whether on the Fashion Runways, on the Hollywood Red Carpets, Fashion Magazines, and even on the street; one thing is clear, and that is, ladies spring and summer fashion for this year is going to be bold and colorful!

Most of us women in general are afraid of wearing bold primary color outfits, whether it's a dress, shoe, or handbag, but there's just nothing to be afraid of.

It is true that bright and bold color dresses, shoes, and handbags may seem a little loud, and make you feel like the whole world is looking at you, but that's just it, the world needs to take notice. The way I see it, men can't wear too many color, so why not us, the women.

Forget about those grey and navy blue pants and skirts. Those are well suited way back there in your closet. Your loafer shoes? They are out of commission, at least for this summer and spring.

Get ready for the 'Claritin' effect. Don't be afraid to step out in those bright colored outfits, shoes, and accessories. You've come a long way baby. Show it from the inside out, in living colors!

Color Blocking Styles

There are several ways to step out in colors for spring and summer. One way is to color block in your choice of dress, skirt, or pant colors. Color blocking is the art of mixing up bold, loud colors together in your fashion statement. With color blocking, anything goes. Use colors that are opposites or maybe even complementary of each other. How?

Pick a dress in a bold primary or neon color you already love, and pair it up with an equally stunning pump, platform or wedge, in a color that compliments the dress. Then carry a colorful or multi-color handbag, one that blends both the dress and shoe colors together.

Mix your top and bottom colors. Mix a bold primary top with a black skirt, or another bold primary color skirt. Like colors, such as, pink, orange and red are usually great together.

Wear a neutral color, like gray, black and/or white dress, skirt and blouse, then add a splash of color with your choice of shoes and handbags. The possibilities are endless.
