Spring/Summer 2011 Trend Alert: Color Blocked

April 1, 2011 • Yahoo


Summary: Yes,your eyes are not deceiving you color blocking has actually been around for a few seasons now, but it seems to really have sprouted legs this spring/summer. In fact, it's popping up in everything from dresses to shoes. We are even beginning to see color blocking on celebrities, so it would appear it's here to stay. What I am particularly loving are the more drapey options this season. I always thought color blocking looked so severe so I am thrilled to see the softer side. So much in fact, I may have to finally partake myself.
