Color-blocking is the exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary colors.
It usually involves two or more colours, generally in bold and bright colours and results in a simple and chic look.
Ladies can colour-block everything. Even though colour-blocking has been the trend for over the years, many Ghanaian ladies still have a preference and a love for it. It is still the “ISH” in town.
So now it’s time to start thinking about doing the same to your wardrobe.
