Have you been wondering how to bring joy to your wardrobe this winter? Well, I have the answer. COLOR BLOCKING!
So, in the past, I was the person that was beyond eager to pull out my autumn tones for the fall and winter season. However this year, color blocking has its foot on my neck and I’m not mad about it at all.
Prior to this year, I’d been already focusing on bringing more colorful basics into my wardrobe. I don’t have nearly as many colors in my closet as I desire, however, I’ve been able to work with what I have and make some beautiful color combinations.
Now, here at The ABnormal Life, I love being a resource and sharing knowledge. So, just in case you aren’t aware of what color-blocking is, let me quickly enlighten you.
Coloring blocking is thought of as the exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations.
Now that we are all on the same page, let’s jump into some color blocking combinations that you can try during this winter season.
1: Pink & Orange
Punchy, vibrant, bold, and fun! Be ready for the exciting attention that wearing this color combination will bring you. This is definitely an “I’ve arrivedddddd” color combo when walking into the room and my extra-self is absolutely here for it lol!
(If you don’t want to be as bright, bring in more black as your base.)
2: Red & Blue
Can we say primary heaven! Lol. I used two out of the three primary colors and decided to pop it with hints of green. This is what I was referring to when I said I was focused on adding colorful basics to my wardrobe. I thrifted this nice and thick red turtleneck and bought these wide leg blue pants from Tracee Ellis Ross’s JCPenny collection.
3: Blue & Green
I have always loved various shades of blue and green together. It’s a timeless color combination to me and always will be.
4: Lavender-Baby Blue-Yellow
This color combination brought me so much joy! I realized I didn’t have enough yellow in my wardrobe. This Telfar cross body is just the right pop of yellow I needed. This is pastel heaven for me.
There you have it. Four color blocking combinations to play around with this winter season. You won’t regret it.
