Color Blocking

Feb 06, 2012

Okay, so I totally feel like a fish out of water when it comes to the new trend called, Color Blocking! I mean, where did it come from? How long has it been out? Is it really safe for normal people to dress like this or is it only acceptable when worn by a celeb? I know….so many questions all at once. So let me back up…..

A few weekends ago I was at the mall and I passesd by Express and I was appalled when I saw a manikin wearing a hot pink top, a neon blue shirt and a green jacket! I stopped dead in my tracks and I deeply gazed at the outfit and before I could utter a sound, my friend who I was with said…with much excitement, “Isn’t that outfit hot”! Ummmmm, let me tell you, hot was not the word I had in mind! Ha! She went on and on about how much she loves the new trend called, Color Blocking. I really didn’t want her to know that I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about, so I just knodded my head and stored the new information I had received in the back of my mind and when I got home, I googled this new trend and OMGOSH! Color Blocking is a whole new world!!!! These are some of the pics that I found…..





Y’all really should see my face over here as I’m typing this blog. Up until this point I really considered myself to be “Up to speed” on fashion, but this one my friends has totally caught me off guard! However, I will say that the more familair I become with this concept, the more my brain is willing to accept it as…..somewhat normal.

Anywho, now its time for you all to chime in! What are your thoughts? Like or dislike? Have you heard of this before now? Is color blocking apart of your wardrobe? If not, will it ever be?

Can’t wait to hear from you all!

until next time……
