Color Blocking Trend

I feel I’ll never be tired of writing about the trends of spring summer this season. So many trends and all so inspiring and wearable. One such highly wearable trend is Color Block. It is one trend which looks really very simple to pull off but can be really tricky, with just one fluke you can end up looking like a circus clown rather than the intended Style icon.

Inspired by a few lovely ladies Im sharing a few simple tips to help you create a fabulous look.

First things first pull out all the block color pieces from you closet, it can be that white shirt, your red or black jeans or that long lost orange vest you once bought. Now put it all out and pick any three colors, well more than three and you are up on the podium to hop like a rabbit, and now accessories but remember the rule :THREE COLORS

Try COLOR & PATTERNS-  Ease in some bright stripes or polka dots and pair them with block colors for a more bolder look (I like it that way) or if you are not a big risk taker then nothing better than putting in some neutrals.

WHITE: Biggest advantage of blocking with white in summer is for your complexion, white doesn’t radiate any hue thus giving a neutral palette to your skin. More over blocking with white gives you a freedom to put as  much color as possible in your accessories.

COLOR on COLOR: Two tones of a same color makes for a fabulous look as well. Michelle Obama created a fabulous look by wearing two tone blue paired with neutrals.

COLOR BLOCK: Here is a small example of complementary color blocks that you can try, There can be million others, but I guess then you’ll just get bored.

If you have ant suggestions or links to make it better do tell me. And I’d love to now how you are Color Blocking!

Leg up in skirts this summer

Through out the cold freezing winter women keep their heart warming legs wrapped up in tights and boots, waiting for the liberation of summer. Summer gives a reason to get out & have leisure in showing off those beautiful legs in summery hues of short or long, slinky or flowy skirts.

Skirts this season have surely taken a longer stride… a flash of an ankel is every bit as provocative and directional as a glimpse of a thigh in a mini skirt in its hey days. A trend that has been peripheral since last spring & summer, that inspired some thought provoking designers to experiment with varied silhouettes.

As the skirts go longer they go more and more flowy and romantic… you can spot one in the streets from Grecian to gothic.

Either its a pleated one or cheerly airy it does define modesty and status.

Longer length is evoking a new visual sophisticated sexiness, the mid length ones hit the right balance between ankel and thigh. For those who have curves nothing better then a  mid length pencil skirt, its snug and it gives you freedom to move around, moreover it drapes around as if its made for you. And if you are like me you would prefer your length just below the knee and flared and puffy like an umbrella.

Long skirts are not just stylish but also fashionably practical. They not just give you an ease to wear but they provide you various options to create a fabulous look as well.

Enough said about longer lengths but I still wont deny that a bit of skin can still stop the traffic.

As fashion is defined by rapid changes, try your hand at a trendy skirt this summer, and do tell me how you are styling yours.
