Pink & Blue Color Blocking

If you’re ever unsure about color blocking or creating a monochromatic look, simply refer to a color wheel for guidance. You can easily incorporate the different types of color schemes you learned in art class into your wardrobe. Here I mixed bright colors on an exceptionally gloomy day and toned them down a bit with neutral shoes and jacket. Although nothing featured in this look was thrifted, everything was a steal, including the F21 faux leather jacket (marked down to $8 from $30 on Cyber Monday) and the $8 collar necklace from Burlington Coat Factory – my new go to place for trendy accessories.

Learning about the different types of color schemes is not only very interesting, but a great way to start mixing and matching colors in your wardrobe. I think most of us subconsciously follow these schemes in our every day lives whether it’s decorating our homes or putting together outfits, but a visual layout of color schemes is always helpful and most definitely sparks creativity. I borrowed this one from  here.
