Trend SS11- Colour Blocking

One of this summer's biggest trends is certainly not one for the faint hearted..it's all about making a bright,bold statement! Colour Blocking was all over the catwalk this SS11 from Prada and Gucci to Sportmax and now the celebrities are getting in on the action. After all this time of being told what colours we should and shouldn't wear together..red and green should never be seen..blah blah... we can finally forget the rules because this trend is all about the clashing of colours.

Celebrities have been opting for shades of yellow, red, orange, pink, green and blue paired with gold accessories, to create a simple yet oh so chic statement outfit.

The trick with this trend is to opt for light fabrics and layer, try a blazer with loosely draped hareems, or a bodycon skirt with a boyfriend blazer. If your not quite ready to make such a statement try the trend with your accessories, clash your clutch with your wedges or your ballets with your tote.
