Who knew being a "blockhead" could mean making a statement? A color blockhead, that is!
No, we're not talking Charlie Brown here! Though blocks of color on fashionable dresses, shoes, scarves, and blouses have been around for a while, this quirky little color trend is back with a surge!
With bursts of neon, extra finesse, new textures, patents, embossing, and a little shine, even the most incompatible colors have been able to come together in a whole new way for the mod, er, modern woman!
Let's see how celebs are getting it done.
Molly Simms has a mod take on this trend with this futuristic Tory Burch frock. What's more amazing then the color blocking at the bottom of the drop-waist dress? The cuffs!
Personally, I don't believe this Thread Social matte silk dress is one of Kim's best looks but I do enjoy the color blocking at the waist. At $475, the price tag is not cheap, but not horribly over the top either!
Jessica Alba loves Narciso! She's been at the couture designer's NY Fashion Week runway show two years in a row and she's always seen in his latest designs at major events! In a hip, asymmetrical sleeved red and black Narciso Rodriguez dress, Jessica knows how to pull the color block trend off right!
Though the bright colored bottom does nothing for her hips, Sophia Bush looks utterly chic in this Alexander Wang swirly color blocked minidress and gladiator booties.
She's a Grecian goddess for the new millennium! Rosario Dawson pulls off two trends here in a color-blocked,one-sleeved Azzaro by Vanessa Seward gown.
