Colour Blocking

Colour Blocking.  Basically it means bright bright colours "blocked" together.  And it is on the rise in the fashion world.  Do I like it?  Personally not at all.  I love colour but I am a bit conservative when it comes to combining bright colours together.  I think bright colours combine beautifully with pale or subdued colours, like fuchsia with ink, or yellow with dark purple, turquoise with white, etc.

However as mentioned, the fashion world has spoken and colour blocking is in. Think pink with orange, or green black and pink.  Generally those who like this trend are rocking tight dresses with panels of colour.  It is very reminiscent of the early 90's, a fashion era I prefer to leave right back in the 90s.

If you are going to give this trend a go, team the outfit with black accessories and there is such a thing as too much colour.  Black shoes and a black bag and limited jewellery accessories will push the focus on the clothing, which when you are colour blocking is where you want the focus to be.

Alternatively if you are a little scared of too much colour like myself, keep the clothing a bit more conservative and go with some bright sunglasses, or bright block colour shoes.  You can find some amazing thick bangles in jewel colours that will take a conservative black outfit and make it ping.

So, will you following this colour trend?
