Proud and bold fashion
Colour blocking means wearing loud, proud, and bold colours simultaneously. It is a lot of fun! You could wear a red tee, blue jeans, green shoes, and carry a black bag. Or pair a red dress with purple shoes and a pink clutch. It all depends on how confident and creative you are, the accessories you have, and the colours you like. The trend came to the fore with Kareena Kapoor's glamourous look (styled by Aki Narula) in Tashan and Kambakkht Ishq. We take a look at some of the recent indulgences in the old trend by celebrities.
Amisha Patel: We heart the polka-dot pumps completely. The red lips and heels add a dash of sexiness to her look. This is the longest dress she has worn in a while and we gotta admit that she looks cute and fresh. A black Chanel bag completes her red, black, and white colour blocked look.
Kareena Kapoor: The queen of the trend shows off a healthy frame in a layered red dress paired with stunning electric blue platform sandals. The draped dress adds bulk to her frame and we don't fancy the silhouette much. The colour looks great on her though.
Dia Mirza: The green is very striking and the dress is feminine and comfortable. You can dress it up or dress it down. Dia has given it a casual twist by pairing with black gladiators. The black and green are equally attractive.
Prachi Desai: She is wearing a shiny black jumpsuit. We dislike the gold tassels. She has paired with a delish coral box clutch and tri-coloured Fendi sandals. Her nails look fab in red! Her make-up is a tad overdone and something seems amiss with the hair. We like that she is attempting to look sexy and glamourous.
Shraddha Kapoor: We love her funky pop look! There are some things only she can carry off. Her jeans are plain and they are jazzed up by a leopard-print top with a tinge of green. The pink suspenders and purple pumps add a burst of pop colour to her look and her make-up has a pink tint. Don't forget the golden nails. Shraddha looks good!
Amrita Rao: For a change, she is decently dressed. White, blue, and sea-green are her colours and she wears them well. Black peep-toes and a matching clutch complete her look.
Imran Khan and Avantika Mallik: It's not everyday that a man wears a sea-green blazer. Except his brown shoes, his other shades are muted. Avantika makes an eye-catching picture in a black maxi paired with striking yellow pumps and a vibrant belt. We like!
