Karma Chameleon

As the new season collections start to appear in the shops one of the main trends that has survived from last season that is Colour Blocking. The basic principle is to combine contrasting and often clashing colours to create a bright and confident look.

On the Spring/Summer catwalk shows, Gucci and Christian Siriano amongst others created the look with mainly separates which could easily be put together with the bright denim skinnies, t-shirts and blazers that are in abundance on the high street. Tip here is to stick with neutral footwear.

Don’t just limit yourself to clothes, this trend runs right through to shoes and bags. Here are some great picks:

Gucci Resort Collection

Rare Colour Block Dress

Next Neutral Colour Block Dress

Aldo Pumps
