Colorblocking is a great way to rework / update your look for spring!

This season the brights and neons abound in a colorblocking frenzy that has most gals wondering how and who??? Oh silly small towners…You can wear this look! It is actually pretty easy to colorblock and look “casual enough”, put togethor, and fitting for most occasions. Chic at any age and very easy to pull off in any size, colorblocking is one very easy way to update and remix your wardrobe for spring.

One of the wonderful things about “real” life a.k.a. not living in Milan, Paris, New York, or Los Angeles is that no one really knows whats “in” or exactly how to wear a new look. If all else fails you will be seen as colorful or bright!

1. Pick a color you want to play with this spring / summer. This color will be your “key” color and is perhaps royal blue, kelly green, lavendar, or anything in the orange / coral family.

2. Check out a common color wheel and select both an opposite (directly across)and a complimentry color(directly next to, touching) to your “key” color.

3. Accessorize! You can make or break this look with the accessories and your perfect coral colorblock ensemble could be ruined by a black purse. Invest in a fun spring bag that is in your bright contrast color.

4. Load up on bold, complimentry, and contrast seperates at Allie Ollie. Our travel seperates are machine wash, made in the USA, are wrinkle free, and super flattering!
