Color-block clothing can brighten your wardrobe Posted on February 21, 2017 under Blog, Fashion. | no comments.
Color-block clothing is increasing in popularity because of the fun colors and retro appeal.
As dry cleaners, we are interested in fashion trends. We care more about the trends for the average person than the European or New York runway models. However, those ideas often trickle down to the rest of us.
Color-block clothing is exactly what it sounds like. There are large blocks of color, often bright colors, for tops and bottoms. Real Simple magazine featured about 7 bright color-block clothing ensembles for women on its website.
The outfits come in a variety of colors from bright pink to muted yellow and fabrics from silk to polyester, with coordinated accessories. See Real Simple’s 7 picks.
The vibrant colors are not only fun but also they can impact your mood. According to The Science of People, the color of your clothing can affect your mood, behavior and stress level.
Based on decades of research, The Science of People reports finding commonality in colors. If you aren’t sure what color to wear, here are their suggestions:
