So now the fashion Gods have moved on....as they always do...and have placed more emphasis on print-blocking than color-blocking these days. Don't worry if you've gone out and bought a ton of bold and bright colored tops and bottoms to color block..this trend is still in. If you can master prints on prints, you'll be more ahead of the game.
|This was simple print-blocking for me. It was more of the printed TopShop romper paired with the crazy printed tights. Prints on prints = FUN!|
In my opinion, print blocking is much harder than color blocking. With print blocking, you can have a plaid print paired with paisley...or floral prints with stripes. While these seem completely opposite (they are), if done right, it can make for a completely fashion forward and unique outfit combination. If done wrong, and I've seen a TON of designers fashion shows where it was tres "wrong", then it will not be a good look.
So my first attempt at print-blocking was while I was headed to a photoshoot to shoot for a local accessories company. I wanted to be comfy but fashionable...so I paired a striped dress with an animal print scarf and then two-toned wheat colored Tims. Now if that's not a bold mixture of colors and prints, then I don't know what is. All in all, I was very pleased with how this turned out and received a ton of compliments. I can't wait to try it out again!
