My favorite combination of colors are orange and cobalt.When I am color blocking and need to tone down the vibrant colors, I opt for nude and cream pieces (rather than black). I love this look for going out for drinks with the girls or grabbing coffee and strolling around the city. It can be kind of vibrant for casual encounters but you can tone it down with a t-shirt or tank under it.
Orange and cobalt color blocking
Color blocking is easy when you get the hang of it. By pairing opposite colors and tones on a color wheel you can make interesting and bright contrasting outfits. You can also color block with using similar shades all from the same hue.
