Colour blocking is the process of taking shades that are opposite to each other on the colour wheel and pairing them together to create an interesting look. While this may sound ominous, if done correctly, it can help you create some truly wonderful looks. If you need a little inspiration, look no further than these Bollywood celebrities who have aced the trend.
1. Alia Bhatt
To receive her Filmfare award for Gully Boy, Bhatt dressed up in a one-shoulder Georges Hobeika gown with a thigh-high slit. The colours orange and pink made for a striking combination that elevated the appeal of the outfit. If you are scared of going overboard, you can start with this combination as it has been known to be a win every single time.
2. Sara Ali Khan
It’s summer, which means it’s time to play around with soothing pastel colours. As seen on Ali Khan here, she paired a pastel green tube top with a pink skirt. To add an extra element of glamour, she layered the outfit with a floral-print blazer. Although the separates have very different aesthetics, together they make for a compelling outfit!
3. Deepika Padukone
Red and pink, who would have thought? If you are feeling a bit brave, you can try the combination seen on Padukone. She paired her dramatic Gauri & Nainika outfit with a pair of fuschia pink pumps by Balenciaga. She kept her accessories to a minimum to keep the focus on the outfit.
4. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
When it comes to risqué fashion, Kapoor Ahuja truly has no competition in the country. Here, she has teamed an ochre yellow pleated skirt with a multi-hued blazer. While it may seem a bit extravagant at first, on second glance, it does make for a striking outfit. The white shade of the blazer perfectly offsets the bright colours in the outfit, which creates a sense of balance.
5. Janhvi Kapoor
It’s the neon belt that sealed the deal for us. It instantly elevates the short dress and takes it a notch up. Lastly, we love the pointed pink shoes and the bright earrings complete the look. If you aren’t too comfortable with colour blocking yet, you can take a leaf out of Kapoor’s book and start by experimenting with accessories before moving on to clothes.
