To Color Block or Not
It's no wonder color blocking is everywhere. The fall color palette includes strong, bright reds, greens and blues. I must admit this trend was a bit over the top for me. My thinking, one strong color is enough. Brights from shoulder to toe maybe too much for me. So for the sake of testing the trend, I looked in my already full closet to see if I could come with a color blocked outfit. So I paired a McCalls blouse (made 2010)and a McCalls skirt (made 2009) then added some grey patent leather shoes to see if it was a passable trendy outfit.
Oprah magazine has a different take on color blocking for the fall season. blocks of bold colors in one garment or accessory. Here's how.
Some curvy ladies may think this trend is over the top; Essence magazine shared these opinions for embracing bold colors.
