Trend for 2011 - Colour Blocking

If you are feeling brave and adventurous this season, why not try one of the hottest fashion trends around at the moment; colour blocking. Throwing out all the normal rules we usually associate with co-ordinating colours, colour blocking involves using the most bright and vivid colours together, to create a look which is confident and vivacious. This look has been widely seen on the catwalk by many top designers, and is a trend which has carried on and grown from last year.

The beauty of this trend, is that you can wear colours which you wouldn't usually put together. There are no hard and fast rules, so colours which clash are perfect for colour blocking. You can even wear variations of two tones and mix together with another colour, although it is best to stick to no more than three colours.

During the autumn/winter seasons, colour blocking can really take you away from the normal, dull colours we usually associate with this time of year. It is also great inspiration for party wear during the festive period. You will find that lots of shops stock dresses which are already colour blocked, with two or three different colours. Another way of achieving this, is to wear a dress in the same all over colour, such as scarlet red, and team it up with a pair of bright pink tights.

You can also mix different coloured tops and skirts together, to create the colour blocking look. Remember, the brighter, the better, so don't be afraid to experiment with the most outlandish colours you can get your hands on. Pink and red will mix well together, as will yellow and orange. You can even use your jacket to colour block, for instance, wearing a pink dress with a red jacket.

There are also shoes you can buy which are made up of two or more different colours, to keep in line with the colour blocking trend. Anything goes with this style, so you can try anything out, and see which combinations inspire you. If, however, you feel a little overwhelmed with this trend, but still want to try it out, you can always opt for a black dress, which has colour blocking around the waist area. This will ease you gently into the trend, and let you take it step by step.

The colour blocking look you create should be eye catching and attention grabbing, but not too shocking! As this trend is quite different and probably more adventurous than the ones you are used to, you really need to wear this with as much confidence as you can, as otherwise you just won't pull it off.

If you choose to try out this exciting, then it's best to keep your accessories to a minimum. The trend will speak volumes all on it's own, so you don't want to overdo it with too much jewellery or jewellery which is too large. Keep it simple and you will create a fabulous look.
