Want To Try Color Blocking? Rock One Of These Fun Looks At Your Holiday Parties This Year

It’s easy to get lost in an endless rotation of black outfits when the temps start dropping. Who isn’t guilty of this? Black goes with everything and complements every skin tone.

Before you settle in to the all black everything routine, though, we’re here to encourage you to shake things up. Not only does color really have a way of boosting your mood–which we all need after weeks of cold, gloomy weather–but watch how the compliments start pouring in when you start wearing color. Everyone is so used to black, grey and navy, that it’s actually quite refreshing to see someone in something bright and fun.

The perfect place to experiment with vibrant hues? Your holiday party! Whether you opt for a stunning colorblock dress or mix and match separates to create your own one-of-a-kind colorblock ensemble, these bold looks always work.

Wear a colorblock dress. Forget the monochromatic and freshen up your closet with a colorful colorblock dress. This Warehouse Color Block O-Ring Belt Shift Dress features a popular (and flattering) panel design that will really make you stand out. Plus, the mix of burgundy and red is perfect for the season–and brings a bit more contrast to the traditional little red dress. Match it with a pair of pointy-toe pumps or booties and you’re ready for the party.

Find a skirt with some serious contrast. Try switching it up with a piece that has a little more flare like this ASOS Color Block Metallic Pleated Midi Skirt. You can wear it with a top that matches one of the colors in the skirt, or you can get a little daring and find a top in a bold bright color like cobalt or royal blue.

Mix and match your favorite colors. If you feel like you’re ready to tackle colorblocking on your own, go wild. Choose two of your favorite colors then find separates in each hue to pair together. We love pink and green, so we’d recommend wearing these ASOS Tailored Belted Pants in Green Pop with a vibrant sweater like this pink Ribbed Sweater with Roll Neck.
