Colorblock Dresses for Women

Updated on August 29, 2013

Figure-Flattering and Fun!

These dresses are bright, colorful and fun. They also continue to be in high style this year, and there's no sign of us tiring of them any time soon.

That comes down the fact that colorblock dresses are extremely flattering no matter what body type you have.

The style uses bands or blocks of color alongside each other to create a dramatic effect. The blocks can be contrasting -- as simple as black and white -- or complementary colors close to each other on the color wheel, like pink and purple.

Check out the informative videos and links below on how to use the style with confidence.

Of course, it helps a great deal to have a basic sense of what's going to suit your figure, but if you stick to the usual tenets you won't have any trouble. Just look at the dress in this intro for a great example.

Scroll through and pick out the best dress to suit your body type. You'll find all you need here to help you make best use of this fashion trend.
