color blocking done right

i was resistant to the color blocking trend at first, but i recently embraced it whole-heartedly after i saw a dress i really liked at max mara a couple weeks ago.

i tend to be very picky about looks i want to achieve and color blocking is no different for me.  i’ve been trying to cash in on this and replicate the vibrancy of the dress, which paired orange and blue but haven’t been completely happy with anything i’ve seen or even purchased.  there are certainly other colors but i’m really digging the orange-blue and red-blue combos.

and speaking of gucci, with their jewel-toned collections…you can bet they have some amazing looks:

gorgeous right?

so what colors look good together to achieve this look?  look to the color wheel and at the concepts of complementary, analogous, and triadic colors.

and why write a long post on what that means when there are tons of articles already out there and when i can post these great videos from wendy’s lookbook (she’s so cute)?
