Currently Loving: Color Blocking

{Chic Color Blocking via The Blonde Salad}

I’ve recently had a change of heart when it comes to color blocking. I’m usually one for wearing neutrals with colorful or bold accessories, so the whole color on color thing didn’t quite appeal to me at first. However, the look in the photo above from fashion blogger, The Blonde Salad, made me completely rethink my stance on color blocking. The purple and orange combination is perfection! I also think the proportion of color is just right. She has chosen just two colors in varying shades and uses the purple as a sort of neutral, in harmony with the orange accents. It seems that when the balance and proportion are done right, color blocking can be rather fabulous. Below, you’ll find a few more chic color blocking looks. Is this a trend you would try or would you prefer to admire from afar?

What’s the verdict? Would you try color blocking? If you have, what combination of colors did you wear?
