Long away....

I was away for long... Apologies !! Well in spite of the long gap not much happening around,Juggling between office and home and yes shopping spree ofcourse. I was longing to do a new post but then I was a little too occupied at work and also with my sisters shopping who happens to move into a hostel soon ,also i wasn't really sure as to how should i be doing my street style hunt but yeah to much of my luck i was pretty lucky to come across fashionistas in Cochin who agreed to click pictures for the blog. I will do a post on them soon and yes ofcourse upload the pictures.So today I decided to pull an all-nighter and do the blog,not that the blog would take me the whole night but then there are things that would follow. With too many personal blogs on fashion i can surely spend the whole night reading those lovely blogs and update myself on fashion. I had so many things on my mind regarding this post and couldn't decide as to what i wanted to post and after a little brain storming i decided to do COLOR BLOCK ( thus my post is color blocked...lol ). Its the latest Fad, i see alot of spotting's of color blocking on many a women too name,some fair pretty well but for others get a stylist if you can afford one. For those who don't know what color blocking is, it combines the use of two or more blocks of color in an ensemble. This could be for a top, bottom, tunic, a dress and even a handbag or shoes. Simply it means – creating an outfit by putting areas or blocks of solid color next to each other. It can include monotone, bright colors, muted colors, contrasting and complimentary colors. Clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories can all feature color block designs or can make up different blocks of color to be put together for a color block outfit. The idea is pretty simple, large areas or entire sections of the garment are "blocked" off in one color, and then another color is used in the next block of the garment. 

Color Blocking can be a tricky game if you don't know how to put the colors right, you see it is easy to go wrong and commit a fashion faux pas. So here's something i ve learnt on Color Blocking and thought would share it (thanks to Miss bee for the same).

This is a color wheel that basically explains how colors evolve and how they pair with each other.

Complimentary Colors are those that sit opposite to each other  on the color wheel : Such as Blue & Orange.

Analogous colors are those that are from the same color family : Such as Pink & Orange.

Here are a few celebrity sighting on color block

 It is a fun trend but just be a little careful with the choice of colors.  For the love of colors and the season this is a must try.When in doubt use white or black as a color and block the other color against the basic color. Also one needn't splurge on green bucks to follow this trend,Wear the trend in two piece say a hot neon pink tank with a basic dark jeans or wear an electric blue jeans with a turquoise top and there you go.  You ll see alot of color blocking on our very own Indian saree, just Google it u ll know what am talking about (wink). Until then paint the town in all colors possible. 

Let me know how did u color block your outfit.

Cheers !!
