Trend to Try: Color Blocking

Color blocking is hot, hot, hot right now!

From It Girls like Rihanna, Emma Stone to the formerly neutral loving Ann Curry, everyone seems to be giving the trend a try.

I have to say I am loving it! It’s so incredibly versatile and modern looking and there are infinite possibilities!

If you’re not into really bright pops of colors like the ladies here, you can do a more classic version by using neutrals (think black and white or brown and cream).

A great perk is that this look can be so slimming. A lot of the detailing on dresses and shirts that are color blocked hug your curves or give the illusion of nipping you in.

What might be my favorite thing about this trend is that you can pull it off without spending a dime! Shop your closets, ladies. You’re sure to find some contrasting colors inside. Mix and match your separates and add more color with your accessories.

There’s nothing like a trend that works with separates you already own and that you’ll continue to wear (in different ways) looong after the trend has faded.
