Color Now: Yellow

Nothing screams summer like the color yellow- bringing thoughts of bright walks in the park and lounging pool-side with only your favorite shades blocking the sunshine. Yellow is also a cheery color to wear when you need that one extra part of your day to shine lightheartedly and remind you that the smallest things can make you smile. Red lips, tan leather and dark denim are the perfect accents to this beaming color. A sweet yellow dress or a small lemony clutch will become your favorite go-to pieces for the coming summer days.

Color Blocking: How-To

by Kaylee Pare

Color blocking is a fun way to get ready for Spring without a hefty credit card balance. This trend is all about re-evaluating how you wear colors. If your first instinct is to match a bright yellow cardi with dark denim (although a glorious choice), you may want to venture outside the proverbial box. Color blocking essentially breaks the rules of matching. Even so, it’s a bright and sunny way to look at your wardrobe, and can help you reinvent it. Here a few instructions reviewed with the help of various Spring 2011 runway looks.

How to Color Block Pink:
Pink looks great with many colors in the blocking scheme. Some do-no-wrong choices are red, purple and coral. Neutral accents break up the brightness. If you’re looking to stand out in a crowd, opt for yellow!

How to Color Block Orange:
Orange is great with purple, white and green. If you’re looking for less of a Spring look, go for brown or red (see it here). If you want to rock the 60’s Twiggy look, go for baby blue!

How to Color Block Blue:
The Spring runways exhibited an array of blues this year, with teal, baby blue and electric coming out on top. Each of these work great mixed together. Accents of metallic, purple, yellow and charcoal offset the look.

How to Color Block Yellow:
Yellow presented itself on the runway in hues from bright to muted. Warning: Do not attempt a color block with dark mustard yellow, you will certainly fail terribly. Color block Spring’s yellows with teal, pink and green.

Pre-Fall Color Blocking: It’s all about Teal.
If you’re looking to plan very far in advance, you should be keeping an eye out for teal. As we’ve seen, teal can still be worn in the color blocking scheme for Spring but it’s making a huge return in Pre-Fall, so you know it’s an investment that will pay off!
