Retro Ebony Magazine Cover – Color Blocking


I saw this retro Ebony Magazine  cover and instantly thought of one of my favorite trends from 2011 that  I will continue to rock in 2012… Color Blocking!  Below are tips for color blocking and some style inspiration.

Simply put, color blocking is wearing more than one bright color at a time. It’s not a trend that most women embrace for fear that they won’t be figure flattering or the worse offense, they won’t be age appropriate. One wrong move can put you in either box, so you must be careful. It’s about colors that complement your eye color and/or skin tone.

Pick colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel (i.e. yellow, orange-yellow, and orange, Like June accomplished.) or tints (aqua and blue) for a more harmonious look. If Adventure is your name, try bolder collaborations, like orange and blue.
