Trend Love: Color Blocking

Summer is quickly drawing to a close, and new fall trends are on the horizon. One of the biggest of the season - color blocking. The concept of color blocking in fashion is nothing new, but this fall its brighter and bolder than it has been before. It may seem like a daunting trend to try and pull off, but its simpler than you think - pick separates in your favorite shades and make sure they are complimentary and contrasting. Consider combinations like purple and orange, pink and orange, red and purple, yellow and gray, and blue and green.

I am loving this bright color block trend for fall because I can only imagine how much brighter the dreary fall days could be when wearing an outfit with this much punch to it - its a great way to stand out! If you're not into standing out that much, consider trying the color block trend with more muted fall colors like navy, orange and green.
