I was going to throw a witty title to this post, but decided it was probably not a good move seeing as it would be plastered all over my social avenues; something about color blocking being good and cock blocking being bad.
|Contemporary or classic, color blocking works with either.|
Color blocking is something that fades in and from season to season, but is always something you can bust out when you can't think of what to wear. This sunny season, however, the look should be your go to. There are many ways to pull it off but to keep it simple, pick a color to wear up top and a different color for the pants and you'll be good to go. Pair that with shoes that match your top or even a completely different color and you'll get a nice contrast that somehow pulls the whole look together.
|Green, rust, and navy sounds good to me.|
As for color pairing, complementary colors are always bold and eye-catching, so red and blue or or orange and navy (sticking with the blue trend) will be great looks. Another option would be keeping the look either cool with greens, blues, and purples or warm with reds, yellows, and oranges. Essentially, you can't go wrong with color blocking, just be careful to not make your outfit too loud with bright or bold colors; for example, a royal blue with a collegiate maize will be over powering, unless you're a Michigan alum. To avoid this, pair a bold color with a chambray or faded fabrics to balance out your look.
