Colorblock is a hot trend for spring and summer 2012 for good reason. It’s a fun way to try bold colors without committing to one shade; it’s also a great way to try on several new colors at once. The best colorblock pieces usually incorporate other shades like black, cream, white, or brown to kind of tone everything down and prevent the wearer from looking like an 80’s reject. Read below to find out how you can make this trend work for you.
1- Colorblock Tees
Leave your ordinary solid color tees in the drawer and reach for a bold colorblock tee instead. A cute cotton tee with a colorblock design is a surefire way to add a dose of fun to skinny jeans, khaki mini skirts, and solid black leggings. Other fun colorblock options include tanks and tunics. To complete this look, add a pair of platform sandals and a cute metallic clutch.
2- Colorblock Sundresses and Maxi Dresses
Brighten up your spring wardrobe with a pretty colorblock sundress. Unlike some garments with colorblocked elements, a long flowy dress makes the trend a little easier to wear. Add a pair of flat sandals, a floppy hat, a set of colorful bangles, and you will be ready for anything!
3- Colorblock Skirts
Like dresses, colorblock skirts are pretty easy to wear as long as you keep a few key things in mind. First, always pair a colorblock skirt with a solid top in either black or a neutral color. Second, keep all the accessories on the simple side. This includes handbags and shoes. Whenever you wear a colorblock garment, it always becomes the focal point, so you don’t want any other garment or accessory to compete with that. Try wearing this kind of skirt with a classic black tee, cream cardigan, and classic beige flats.
