The Color Blocking Trend

Color Blocking is the new hot trend. It combines two or more blocks of color next to each other in an ensemble to create fashionable effects. The trend is everywhere; on the runways (Gucci), on red carpet as well as celebrity street style and celebrities love it. Every time I see a celebrity dressed according to the color blocking trend, I just smile. It is very summer-y. Take a look at the pictures below and dare to try the trend. Just be careful and choose the right colors, for example purple and orange always look good together, blue with yellow, pink with yellow too.
I absolutely love the trend, especially for the summer season. What do you guys think? Love it or hate it?

The colours kind of remind me of Gucci winter 2011/12. Especially the purple with the orange! Perhaps you wanna follow each other :)?

Great post! I love the idea of color blocking, I just don't have any solid color bottom really. I am a big jeans girl. I should change that though!

Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Color blocking is so sleek. I love when purple is a main color in the combo.
