5 color-blocking looks you can try this fall

It's all about colors.

HOUSTON – We are back with another style trend. This time, it's called "color-blocking."

Courtney Zavala caught up with stylist Marzi Petris during an editorial shoot at Superb Studio, a natural light space located in Eado.

 

The style guru explained the latest fashion trend, and how one can piece together an outfit with two complementary colors.  

"Color blocking is taking solid color pieces and putting them together to make an outfit," said Petris.

The editorial, shot by photographer Cody Bess, featured models in bright bold colors from head to toe.

"We have a lot of these solid colors playing together to create this look," said Petris.

The secret to master the color block? Look at a color wheel.

"Complimentary colors are the colors that are opposite of each other on the color wheel, like blue and orange; yellow and purple; and green and red," said Petris. "That's kind of the cheat sheet."
