Ahead of the weekend, Pulse writer Alice Adu has some tips on colour-blocking, what it is and how you can rock it.
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.
Colour-blocking is a great compromise for those who are typically pattern-shy, and its sharp structure allows for pieces to easily transition from day to night.
From in-your-face colour combos to classy linear shapes, all you need to do is amp up your look with these colour-blocking styles.
(1). Wide horizontal stripes and just about three quarters- length sleeves will make a dress appropriate for both the office and the cocktail lounge.
(2). Two tone drape blouse: keep it really interesting with this sophisticated loose top, it is usually emerald-coloured and buttoned-dress from the front, but the back has a sexy cut out. This top is perfect for a lunch date at the mall.
(3). Zebra colour block tee: You definitely will love the playful contrast of wavy zebra stripes and the structured colour square.
(4). Slimming two-tone dress: This dress is full of surprises. A racer back, a high-low hem, and a scoop neckline ensures that your look will fierce from every angle.

(10). Colour-blocking swimsuits: Heading to the beach this weekend? You can take a colour-block style with you too. There are plenty of swimsuits that are two-tone on the market, and if cut in the right places, they can be very flattering too.
