The BLOCK Is Hot

Pairing contrasting, yet complimentary, strategically placed bold hues is what this trend is all about. It can be done with two or a multitude of combinations. Block out your inhibitions — color is back!

Color Blocking appeared at international fashion weeks in the Spring of 2011. While this trend is not so new, it has seemingly made way as one of the season’s hottest trends. Prada and others featured this bold look in their collections and caused heads to turn. Celebs (or their stylists) have taken hold of the trend and added their own personal flare — as you are encouraged to do.

Color Blocking can indeed be confusing. If you don’t want to take great thought on this trend when getting dressed, purchase pieces that have already done the thinking for you. Wear one of these stand outs and you can go easy on the rest of your ensemble.
