COLOR BLOCKING IN 2012: FASHION TRENDS FOR LESS

Posted by: on Feb 29, 2012 | One Comment
I recently saw a slide show on Glamour.com which discussed Spring 2012’s Most Wearable Fashion Trends; it showcased a lot of great trends to look forward to for 2012! The slide show, which you can find here, inspired me to do a ‘Fashion Trends for Less’ post simply because we all cannot afford designer name clothing but still want to dress fashionably and wear current trends!

 

The Fashion trend that stood out to me the most was “Color Blocking”, as seen below. Many celebs have already  been seen modeling the trend.  Color Blocking is basically taking colors that are sort of opposite from one another, yet can compliment each other.

 

Here are some alternative options of Color Blocking, which are super affordable yet are very stylish:
Color Blocking
$27 Charlotte Russe$41 Bloomingdale$17 Target

$20 Charlotte Russe$40 Charlotte Russe$40 Gap

$35 Ally Fashion$40 Charlotte Russe

 

Keep in mind with Color Blocking you don’t necessarily have to stick with just clothing, you can spice up your look by having a bold & bright color on your nails (let’s say aqua green) or even multi-colored accessories, and pair it up with a bright fun shirt (let’s say pink) with blue jeans.

 

Any possibility is possible, just keep in mind that you don’t have to spend a fortune following current and future fashion trends. Follow current sales at local department stores and you will be able to find the same trends that celebrities are currently styling for a lot less!

 

How do you feel about Color Blocking? Have you already started wearing this trend? Will you be trying it out this year?
