A color-blocked outfit juxtaposes two or more solid colors—usually bold ones. Some garments have built-in color-blocking, but you can also achieve the look by wearing a contrasting top and bottom. If you’re having trouble finding colors that pair well, Nyjerah recommends adding in a neutral. “Traditionally, color-blocking meant pairing two or more colors that are opposites on the color wheel—combinations that many would say clash,” she explains. “But nowadays, stylists will pair any two bold colors to create a contrasting, color-blocked ensemble.” Color-blocking also allows you to choose which features to emphasize. For example, if you want to show off your shoulders, try pairing a bright top with more muted bottoms—brighter colors stand out, while deeper shades tend to recede.
