Hello there, 

I just love playing with colors! I always experiment and try to style this color block dress differently whenever I plan to wear it.


Nude shoes create a great balance and ideally it is a best choice for bold color block dress but this time I decided to take it to the next level. This dress is made by using two adjacent colors (violet and red-violet) also called analogous colors. Analogous means two or more colors are located next to each other on the color wheel.

Color Wheel

I opted to go with burgundy classy pumps which is from the red color family and red color comes next to red-violet color on the color wheel. Since I used 3 bold colors for this look, I decided to carry neutral color bag! 


So basically I use the following analogous color scheme (violet, red-violet and red) and one neutral color!

    This is an inspired post. Not only do you look amazing but you’ve introduced me to the idea of the colour wheel which I love. You really are so helpful to this middle aged trans woman with your encouraging message that anyone can be stylish.

    Such a fun color scheme! It’s always refreshing to see someone using bright colors and using an analogous color scheme with various shades. It can make a fantastic outfit, as you’ve shown.
