Colour Block is back…

…And BIGGER than ever!!

Ignore all those boring colours in your wardrobe like the whites and blacks because its time to let in the electric and vibrant colours for this spring.

Let the brights dominate your wardrobe this season, even if you mix simple one colour pieces together you are guaranteed a fashionable look. It’s all about standing out in the crowd!!

Colours which are not necessarily bright can also be within the colour block trend.

The main high street stores that are rocking the colour block trend this spring are Zara, Topshop, Mango, and ASOS. But don’t worry there are many more stores involved but I think the above stores are the ones which have stood out the most.
