Colorblocking has been a trend for quite some time, potentially first originating in the swinging sixties mod scene of London. While you may sometimes colorblock your outfits unintentionally, bolder and more obvious choices are the current look du jour. Most recently, we saw this trend on Beyoncé during New York Fashion Week, and actresses Danielle Brooks and Jane Krakowski at the Emmys. Colorblocking may look red carpet runway-ready, but it’s entirely possible to follow this trend for under $100.
A white top is incredibly versatile, but a multi-colored geometric top like Solange Knowles’ says so much more.
SKIRTS AND DRESSES
Naya Rivera and Freida Pinto both prove how truly flattering strategically-placed shapes of various colors can be.
While you may find a brightly colorblocked shoe like Katy Perry’s a bit too much for your sartorial style, there are plenty of more subtle versions of this style.
Unsure about bold colors on your bod? Follow Lala Anthony and Kendall Jenner’s lead and try the trend on a handbag instead.
