If there was ever a moment to be bold and bright, it’s right now. After two years of dreary pandemic isolation and unending madness in the world, it’s safe to say that we’re all very ready to make a new, powerful statement. And what better way to give voice to your soul than with the power of color? As we all know, fashion can speak volumes.
Color blocking in the fashion world, which first made a mark in the 1960s, can compliment your physique, start a conversation, and brighten your day. The approach involves making use of opposites on the color wheel to create a quirky, experimental edge.
Many attribute the color blocking movement to the work of early 20th-century Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, though some have contested this. Designers like Yves Saint Laurent popularized the trend as the youthful rebellion of the 60s flourished and thrived. But whatever the true origins of color blocking may be, its effect always sends out a bold and powerful message. Color blocking is even employed in the realm of home decor and various other design traditions.
