Colorblocking trend is not going anywhere any time soon, it´s staying here. This trend resurface every year only with a more creative interpretation, it´s never a last season.
The spring 2012 runway is packed with colors, bright and bold, solid-color pieces such as a colorblocked dress, striking vibrant skirt, bright single-colored cardi and three-toned swimwear.
Last year´s spring we´ve worked more on putting together two or three separates of varied color shades to colorblock. But for spring 2012 colorblock trend, we´re taking advantage of already-colorblocked pieces.
Whether you´re mixing separates or accenting colorblocked pieces, the rule thumb for this trend is sticking to three colors maximum in order to avoid looking like a walking rainbow.
C&C California Colorblock Maxi Tank Dress
We want to look happy and upbeat this spring, a colorblocked maxi dress in cheerful colors is the answer. To accent this dress, opt for accessories with the same colors as your dress or go for neutrals such as black or brown.
Cut25 Combo Knit Skirt
To wear a two-toned skirt, complete it with a solid-colored top in the same family of color. This Dolce Vita Leo Top in orange is perfect to team with this jersey colorblocked skirt above because the colors blend well and transitions smoothly from top to bottom. Nude shoes are perfect to finish the look.
RALPH LAUREN Colorblock Bikini Top
RALPH LAUREN Colorblock Bikini Bottom
Now that you can go swimming at the beach, make sure to wear something really sexy and trendy – a colorblocked swimwear that screams exciting spring and summer! Choose a matching two-toned bikini top and bottom, or go for a three-toned single piece. Whatever makes you comfy.
Tibi Amber High Heel Sandals
We often use shoes to accent a dress, but if we speak of colorblock leather sandals, it´s the other way around. Start from the sandals and work your way up, choosing one color from your sandal tones for your dress color. An orange sleeveless pleated dress which price is over-the-top, is coincidentally made for this spring sandal above.
How do you work this spring´s cheerful colorblocking trend? Do you prefer to mix solid-color separates or do you take advantage of already-colorblocked pieces?
