If you’re just about to board onto the color-blocking train or have been working your way to those train steps, it would be best if you throw yourself off now or let this one go by. Cause this trend, has gone into overkill territory like the florals all day everyday trend.
I of all people shouldn’t be saying such things, after all blocking those colors up down and all around has been a styling favorite of mine for years now. Years I say, so I know when it’s time to let go of something for awhile, just to make space for something new, the technicolor way of dressing.
There is no way I’m going to let go of color in my way of dressing, but with more colors incorporated, there is more fun to be had with overall look. For those who aren’t comfortable with wearing the rainbow, please seek guidance in the right direction for this one, before you run the risk of looking like the clown with floppy shoes and all.
