Similar to monochrome outfits, you should keep colorblock outfits in your back pocket for days where your outfit creativity level is at an all-time low (hello, stay-at-home fashion). It’s a great opportunity to combine your favorite colors or separates, for a simple but majorly polished outfit.


Rather than showing you full colorblock outfits, I’m sharing the best (in my opinion) color combinations. The actual makeup of an outfit is so personal, so I thought guidance on what colors to combine would be helpful!


Sweaters and dresses are my favorite colorblock separates. Any top will do, and I have found great colorblocked skirts but I tend to stay away from pants. If each leg is a different color, you’ve got it going on, but color change vertically (say, from the knee up is a different color than the lower portion of the pant leg) can get a little tricky.

Similar to my thoughts on monochrome outfits, colorblock outfits make a big fashion statement, especially when you pair significantly contrasting colors, like my all-time favorite: magenta and turquoise. Colorblocking is also easy to achieve, so when you find yourself reaching for the same 5 outfits, try this as a refresh!
