There is no doubt that one of the biggest trends this summer is block colour. It can be a bit of a shock to the system after a bland winter to try and incorporate bold, brash colour into your wardrobe so here are a few simple tips and looks to help inspire you to get a little bit bright this season.
So what is colour blocking??
It is simply the use of two or more colours. There are no rules; it is all up to your imagination!!
How do I block colour??
To perfect this fashion trend you need to choose the right combinations of colours for maximum impact, but also be conscious of colours that work with your skin tone and your personality. A few colours that work well together include pink and purple, orange and blue, red and pink and cobalt blue and red.
If you are going bright, go bright all the way – don’t get shy half way through and add pastels (unless you are using this as a base), this will end up looking dull and off trend.
If you don’t want to be a summer siren but do want to brighten your look then add colour through your accessories. My favourite way to add colour is through my nail polish (try shellac it is fabulous!!) or through bangles...there is nothing cuter than an armful of coloured bangles this summer.
