THE STYLIST DIARIES | Colour Blocking
Our Westfield Stylist Lucy takes you through the dynamic trend of colour blocking.
Keen to make a statement? It's one thing to wear a bright top or jacket but colour blocking head to toe with complimentary or contrasting colours will really make you stand out from the crowd.
To nail this look you have two options. You can wear head to toe in similar tones, for instance, shades of emerald greens, variants of blues or bright pinks with a pop of red is a great example and will have you sitting right on trend.

Secondly if you're feeling daring you can mix and match with complimentary colours, your vibrant greens are fabulous with blues and those same blues can be contrasted with deep pinks or even tangerine. To keep this option working for you, make sure you keep all your colours either cool or warm, if contrasting ensure they are opposites on the colour wheel and also stay clear of bold prints.
