I remember when colour blocking was ‘in’ a few seasons ago… But I found it difficult conforming to it. My personal style is quite grungy/edgy… so colour blocking is a bit out of my comfort zone, to say the least! I think it’s important to only follow trends that are right for you, and relate to your personal style. Otherwise, how do you expect to rock it when you feel super silly? Confidence is key to pulling off any outfit. FACT.

But back to the subject at hand – tangerine, acid pink, egg yolk, grass green, cobalt and violet are set to be the colours to buy – taken from designer catwalks such as Roksanda Ilincic, Prabal Gurung, Giambattista Valli, Fendi, Miu Miu, Stella McCartney, Hermes, Burberry Prosum and Viktor & Rolf.

Just because this trend is not for me doesn’t mean it’s not for you. If you want to colour block, it is suggested you pair your piece (or pieces) with neutrals and whites so that you don’t look like a walking rainbow! And, this way, you can just let your pieces stand out and do the talking.
