Petite Outfit Ideas: Color Blocking outfits

In previous post, I put together some celebrity outfits with a focus on color blocking. Again, color blocking is definitely the trend, and it could be really fun and has a lot of personality. I do find it hard to work bold colors into the outfit. Bellow are some of my suggestions if you would like to jump on the color blocking band wagon

Outfit 1: Pink on Blue

Blue dress, pink jacket and accessories

I love blue and half of my wardrobe is in this color. The dark cobalt goes really well with pink, or nude colors in my opinion. The pink introduces a little warmth to the outfit, while it is still very subtle and doesn’t fight against the dark blue. Wearing an open jacket in contrasting color will keep the outfit work appropriate, while creating a flattering color blocks that helps us appear leaner around the waist line. By keeping the numbers of colors to only two colors, this outfit is also easy to wear even for petite girls. The clear color blocks keep it nice and chic without overwhelming our small bodies.

Get the look:

Cropped Pastel Tailored Blazer
Halter Neck Double Layer Dress
PU Leather High Heel Shoes in Color Block
Crazy Hearts Coin Purse
Shocking Cobalt Nail Polish

Outfit 2: Bright as sunshine

Bright red and green outfit

If you are brave and really love bold and loud colors, then might as well go all the way with it:) Because the color is so bright, it’s best to keep the outfit simple with a clean cut pencil skirt, which elongates the body. The button up top is a classic, with that you can create a flattering v-neck look. And yes, the purse is just so preppy!

Candy Color Leather Bucket Tote Bag
Xl Link Necklace
Pencil Skirt With Belt
Ankle Strap Peep Toe Pumps

Outfit 3: Casually fun

Casual outfit with fun and fresh colors

With this outfit, the color tone is kept light and easy with light blue and yellow. This way you can still play with colors without feeling too intimidated. Yellow and blue are my favorite as they are quite versatile and easy to match to different outfits.

Outfit 4: Color blocking for career girl

Red and Navy: Perfect Combination for Career Girls

This is sort of a reverse version of the first outfit. I read somewhere that men almost always notice women in red first. It is the symbolic color that represents sexuality, confidence, and passion. Navy, on the other hand, works to balance that and gives it a more work appropriate feel. It’s the new black after all.

Get this look:

Blue Tailored Blazer
Embossed PU Messenger Clutch Bag with Metal Bar
Dark Blue Mesh Point Flat Shoes
Crepe Shift Dress
Chain Patterned Hinge Bracelet

So which one of these is your favorite outfit? And how do you feel about the color blocking trend?
