I don’t like the word blocking, that’s why I decided that the only time blocking was allowed was when used during outfit plotting. How does it work? Who came up with it? Can it be done wrong?  I can’t answer any of these questions but one thing is certain, it’s not new therefore, it should  not be approached as a  trend (that sounds like a warning :s ).

Colour blocking happens when you play with different blocks of solid colours juxtaposing them with other hues. You can start by strictly playing  with only cold colours or warm colours, which makes it easy to develop blocking strategies… colour blocking strategies. Colour blocking is like the mini skirt, if you look awkward and uncomfortable while busting the look, well my friend you ain’t pulling it off, no pun there!
