The Art of Blocking

The art of blocking

Block colours. My favourite two words that I refer to when I plan an outfit.

What I love about block colours is that they match no matter what. Want to add a colourful accessorie? Go ahead, it won’t clash! Want to match your jewellery to your handbag? Sure, no worries!

Using block colours gives you instant style points because there is no way you can go wrong by mixing the wrong colours… As long as you make sure that your statement block colours are actually shades, then you should be fine!

I always like to use a basic white or grey top as the basis for any outfit, because this way I can become flexible with the colours I choose for my accessories. I haven’t decided whether it’s a good or bad habit but I always like my outfit to match. Never would I team printed pants with shaggy jackets and printed tops… It just doesn’t give the “Elegant, ready-to-party but I can wear this to work too” type of impression, which is the impression that I subconsciously go for when putting together my outfits.
