Color blocking -WHY & HOW ?

 2011 was definitely marked by color blocking trend and judging by what we could see on latest  Fashion Weeks , it has evolved and will make major impact on Spring/Summer 2012 as well! My favorite color-blocking collection in 2011? Gucci! Without doubt!

WHY TO WEAR IT?
It is fun, bold, perfect for experimenting and what's also important  is that you will not have to buy too many items to start with it! Its interesting daily outfit and perfect for weekend night out! It will make a statement, that's for sure!

HOW?
Easy! :-) First decide what kind of color blocking you will use (check photos I posted) . My favorite is with neon colors, but of course it can be more mild look, even without total look - color block accessorize.
Than check out your closet, select from items you already have and use your imagination! That's the fun part - orange goes great with blue, pink with violet, green with yellow...your creative side is your limit.
At last, buy 1-2 items for start (I suggest 1 accessory at your choice and one color pants which are very easy to find these days). Spend some time in front of your mirror (which no girls finds difficult) and try out different, even what you think would not match surprisingly can look great!
Good luck and be bold!

My favorite items and inspirations (2011 & 2012) are below

  10. @Bravoe Tks a lot! Couldn't agree more with you. I am in love with leopard print as long as I can remember (never total look) this is why I called it "everlasting chic"! This year I'm enjoying very much color blocking and when I realized its going to be even more popular in 2012 I had to blog about! :-)

  16. Colour blocking is an interesting trend which I've yet to experiment with. I would love to do so and I hope this trend becomes everlasting. It's strange, such mish mash of colours are reminiscent of the 80s and when people are dressed like that, others go "Eew... that's so 80s." However fashion has reinvented itself and now colour blocking gets the thumbs up!
