Colour Block It

about 3 years ago

Colour blocking is huge this season and if you're not in to the on-trend pastel palette, then maybe Crayola colours are just for you.
From Stella McCartney to Marc Jacobs we saw head-to-toe looks on the runway of all the best bright shades and it's a look I LOVE.

I think a coloured leather jacket can make a real statement. Dare to pair this with red denim jeans and stilettos.

Cobalt Cool


I'm a huge fan of cobalt blue. However, IMO it certainly works best in a top-to-bottom sitch.

Command The Attention


There's something about hot pink that makes you feel amazing when you wear it. It's feminine and pretty but overtly strong. I love this asymmetric dress.

Mix Up Your Fabrics


I like to team a bold colour like pink together with interesting fabrics. The juxtaposition of the satin top with a coarse wool skirt feels elegantly elevated.

These bold green accessories finish of a head-to-toe look, but I'm also loving them as a pop of colour with a black or denim outfit.

Dare To Block It


Colour blocking is all about choosing bold shapes and really going for it. Don't do Crayola colours quietly, these hues need lots of company to make the look work as a whole. And never forget the accessories for a real runway vibe.
