Colorblocking is a trend that has been around a while now…and while some of us dive right into this colorful sea, I know others of you are still a little timid when it comes to pairing 2 bold colors.  So how do you break up the palette and avoid looking like a Crayola box?

The Answer: Leopard (Note: Leopard is always the right answer.)

I chose to mix teal and purple, which are 2 of my favorite jewel-tones during this time of year…but when I put it on…something was missing….I still needed to harness the look with a neutral. “But Courtney, are you saying leopard is a neutral?! Seriously?!”

Yes, my darlings, leopard is indeed considered a neutral, and in this case, it anchored the whole look. Leopard was the matchmaker…Leopard brought everything together.

See? I told you…Leopard is always the right answer.
