Color Blocked!

Ah, Color Blocking, the only fashion trend I have noticed in which you actually need some knowledge of basic art to master. Now, I'm not a master in the least... I've simply been watching Youtube videos/tutorials like my life depends on it! (If you are curious about what constitutes Color Blocking, I recommend doing the same! There are some great videos out there!)Here is a website for basic color theory that can also get you started!

Here is the basic color wheel. Know this wheel, and you've got a good start on Color Blocking!

So in my last post, I said I was going to try my hand at Color Blocking. So here's my attempt!

I tried to go with an analogous color theme: yellow, green, and blue (I figured blue was close enough to yellow and green!).

Shirt: bought at Walmart
Pants: bought at JC Penney
Jacket: It was my mother's in the 90's. I've high-jacked it. :)
Shoes: Chadwicks
