Colorblocking

One of the biggest trends on the Spring 2011 runways was the concept of colorblocked clothing. When you want to make a statement, this trend is the way to go. Colorblocking involves various graphic blocks of color that contrast beautifully and seamlessly on one garment. Even the accessories market has jumped on the colorblocking bandwagon, with numerous options available in shoes, handbags and more. While this retro trend usually involves the use of bright, punchy hues, it can also be flattering in shades of black and neutral for a more sophisticated style. Downplay the rest of your ensemble and allow this trend to stand out all on its own.  Even create your own colorblock by pairing a contrasting top and bottom in bright and bold hues. Try one of these geometric gems to add this chic trend into your spring style rotation:
