When it comes to color blocking, it is always safe to match two colors in which the hue of your bottom is paired with one of your top’s print shades. On the contrary, what if, what you opted for was a plain shirt with bright shade, and you wanted to do color blocking? How would you know which color to pair with it?
Color wheel is the perfect basis for such, but if you wanted to experiment and to decide based on your style and what you think looks perfect to wear together, that of course is your call. But my take to really make my color-blocked ensemble appealing is to don an accessory or scarf that matches the shade of your bottom.
For example: for this outfit, instead of leaving my outfit plain vanilla with my yellow knitted sweater and pink pleated skirt, I wore my pink printed scarf for accent and to pair my pink skirt suitably with my top or to connect these two different colors, which you can also do through your bag. While for my shoes, I donned my gold Keds sneakers for additional accent, and for my bag and jacket, I just chose the ones with versatile shades like gray and white.
Through this, I was able to connect two separates with two different colors in one ensemble without looking like a bit out of place. it is also a plus point that both shades are pastels and not brighter than the other.
