Eye Catching Dresses In Eye Catching Colors


If you’re going to shop eye catching pieces, make sure they’re in eye catching colors. The key to the perfect color block look is working with complimentary colors that stand out against each other. For example, if you were to mix two different pink colors, you’re likely not going to get the desired look. However, if you pair a pastel pink with a pastel blue, both colors are going to stand out effortlessly. Regardless of which colors you favor, this is generally a good rule of thumb to follow.


Our favorite dress in particular is the STELLA MCCARTNEY Yellow Sheer Panel Maxi. While solid, a dress like this pairs well with other colors—whether in a handbag, shoes, or even jewelry. Similarly the FLEUR DU MAL Blue Crystal Mini is another common color block shade paired with salmon pastels. Common across most brands and stores, you can’t go wrong with these two eye catching styles in your closet. All you’ll need now is a new pair of spring sandals and the perfect bag.

Prints Made For Color Blocking


Already have too many solid eye catching dresses? Most of us do, but that doesn’t mean solid colors are the only way to color block. Aside from mixing colors on a more basic playing field, patterns are a great way to do so. Although there are plenty of prints to explore, you’ll want to stick with something simpler and easy to style. This way, you can easily mix and match your favorite hues fort he perfect head-to-toe color block look.


For example, the GEISHA DESIGNS Pleated Strapless Dress is by far one of our favorites for the technique. Yes, it’s great for color blocking, but it’s also generally great for the spring season. And before the weather begins heating up, you’ll want to stock up on stellar eye catching dresses like these anyways.
