Color blocking made us more creative on wearing unexpected color combinations, making our street looks daring, expressive, and fashion-forward. Red, white, and blue combinations may sound patriotic, but you may actually wear the palette in a fashion forward way whether you’re heading to the office, going on a morning run, or even on your girl’s night out. Just keep on reading to know how to make the red, white, and blue combinations work for you.
Stick to solid colors to make your style feel bold without feeling too much of a costume.
If you’re going to do something crazy like wear a gigantic tulle skirt and go red, white, and blue, then it’s best to stick to solid colors to let your style bold without it feeling too much like a costume. However, you could wear the color combinations at work. Like fashion blogger Kara Caspari, opt for a blue full skirt and a white blouse that can be completed with a pair of red-orange pumps. Or, channel some sailor-inspired vibe by going for a navy sweater teamed with white pants and red shoes and bag like fashion blogger Mary Orton did. You could always go for muted or lighter shades to create a cohesive look if bold colors are too much for you.
Pick a bold print or color on your outfit and complement it with accessories.
If you’re wearing a statement-making outfit in one of the three shades, complete your looks with the color of your bag, shoes, and other accessories. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, wear the bold color combination in a simpler way by going for a blue jumpsuit teamed with a white bag and red sandals. This way, you’ll look more natural than trying too hard to pull the challenging red, white, and blue combination.
Incorporate the third color with a jacket or a blazer.
It’s easier to wear white with red and white with blue, so think of resorting to a jacket or blazer to complete the look as you can take it off anytime you want. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, look chic with your white top and red pants on your casual street style, but make everything effortless with a blue denim jacket that will pull together the look effortlessly.
Wear the color palette in your prints.
If you’re not a fan of mixing and matching bold hues, resort to prints with red, white, and blue colors. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, you’ll look chic with a colorful floral dress teamed with a white top and a pair of blue ballet flats. If you wish to make your style trendy, copy Veronica Popoiacu’s outfit wearing all-white with a blue checkered coat and bag teamed with red pumps. By heeding these simple tricks, you’ll get more creative and fashion-forward on your street looks.
