color blocking

There are many hot trends this summer: 70s-inspired trousers, sky-high wedges, and crochet to name a few. But if you've been following the runway shows, there is one trend taking over: color, color color! And the brighter the better!

The best thing about this trend is that it can be utilized instantly with a simple mix and match of your wardrobe.

A few things to keep in mind when styling:
1. Don't pair colors that look too similar. You want some sort of contrast.
2. Keep the contrasting colors of the same intensity. You won't want to pair pastel green grousers with a hot pink cardigan.

We know this trend won't be for everyone, but if you're having a drab day, incorporate a burst of color through your accessories.
