Some trends can be a little……frightening. Say the term ‘Colour Blocking’ to your average fashionista and you could be pretty sure the majority of us haven’t yet given it a go. That’s probably because we are picturing head to toe bright colours that would put an 80’s aerobics instructor to shame. But colour blocking can be done on a smaller scale and still have that element of fun to it.
Some examples of wearable colour blocking would be to team coloured denim with an opposite tee (green and hot pink are a great combo), or an orange midi skirt with cobalt heels or even layering 3 primary coloured tanks.
If that still sounds a bit too Rainbow Brite, why not try a maxi dress with a fun clashing neck-piece, or invest in an eye popping coloured bag. Or some of these fabulously bright pieces we found while searching through our favourite online stores…..
