Tips for a successful colorblock style outfit
Normally there are no strict rules for creating your color block outfit. However, you can take advantage of some simple tricks to get the most out of it. There they are !
Adapt the trend to your own clothing style
Dark colors to hide flaws
If you don’t like a certain part of your body, simply opt for a dark color garment (such as purple or navy) to camouflage it.

Stripes for a lengthening effect
Clothes with vertical stripes, in turn, are an ideal ally to elongate your body. For example, you can integrate a long cardigan with a color block design into your day outfit consisting of a few bright shades. For a better result, we recommend using the same colors as on the patterned garment to create a harmonious and stylish look.

Women’s Clothing Style 2022: 4 Successful Color Block Outfit Ideas
Outfit based on complementary colors
In a previous article we already talked about colors that go together. Thus, we understood that the combination of two complementary colors (which are opposite on the color wheel) is a fantastic way to provide a fascinating look. This is the first option for creating an elegant and ultra chic color block outfit. Among the various successful combinations, we will mention the most popular, namely: yellow and purple, orange and blue, green and red, pink and green, etc. On the other hand, to enjoy an impressive effect, you do not have to choose the most flashy hue of the chosen colors.
Color Block Version #1 – Combine Opposing Colors
Outfit with similar colors
As with opposite colors, we again use the color wheel to create an outfit based on analogous colors. This time we take two colors that are next to each other. In this case, the possible combos are: yellow and orange, red and orange, blue and green, yellow and green. While this variation of color blocking is still appropriate enough to show off a captivating look, it turns out to be more elegant and less daring because the colors used are more similar and less contrasting.
Color Block Idea No. 2 – Combine Similar Colors
Color block look with neutral accents
If the idea of daring a total look in vibrant colors doesn’t appeal to you, then a third alternative presents itself. It’s just a matter of adding a neutral note to your outfit by combining two bright colors with a more elegant and discreet shade such as beige or white for example. Let’s look at some examples of how to complete this challenge.
Color block outfit option #3 – add neutrals to her spring look
- Add accents in white or black to an outfit in blue and brown for a sophisticated look.
- If the outfit is more daring (in red and pink for example), nothing is more appropriate than adding a piece in your nude to balance the look and thus enjoy a chic, elegant and feminine vision.
- By the way, denim can also be considered a neutral element! So just put on your favorite sweater in a flashy color (like yellow), then go for accessories (glasses, handbag, shoes, jewelry, beret, etc.) in the complementary color (for yellow, it’s red) and complete her outfit with a balancing touch in the shape of jeans
- Combine geometric patterned pieces in beige with bold pastels like this pretty coat and the long pleated skirt pictured below.
Playing with opposite colors but in a pastel version is also a great alternative
