the new way to colorblock.


Colorblocking is back, but not as you know it. You may or may not remember, this summer was all about mixing colours in a minimalistic way with no prints of textures. Well this spring gives high to modern texturing with tones literally snapped out of Piet Mondrian's paintings. Think a primary palette in any material you can imagine, from fur and leather to nylon. This doesn't mean saying bye to pink and purple tones, but it does mean a higher contrast between the colours to amaze shock everyone with your look!
I've found a few pieces from the amazing sales going in on every online site, make sure to check them out!


1. The sweater.
The perfect statement-making sweater for the spring, would make a sleek add to any staple piece. Egg-shell and red really make an amazing combination!

2. The clutch.
This wonderfully colour blocked clutch mixes bright cobalt, pale aqua, and a bit of neon orange for a fresh palette that's reminiscent of the colourful Art Deco facades in Miami.


3. The Sandals.
These gorgeous leather sandals straight from Simons' last show for Jil Sanders would give a very modern edge to a classic evening dress, or an all-white suit.

4. The Skirt.
What's better than a colorblock skirt which automatically makes you slender with contrast black side panels? And which can be worn for an elegant soiree, a brunch with the girls, or a day at the office?


5. The Dress.
Sleek, modern and color-blocking add a modernized hint to this fabulous classic-shaped dress, which can be worn at night and day. 

What do you think? Will you be color-blocking this spring, or do you want to try another trend? I'm sure I'll be wearing many of the items above this spring, I mean - a primary palette is chic any way you mix it right? 

Love,
Victoria.

  1. I love colour-blocking. Not liking everything of it, but most of it I do. Not sure if I would wear something like this, this spring/summer. But who knows maybe I'll change my mind.

  4. Remember you can always personalise it, and colour-block with pastel tones, or different shades of the tone that suits you best. Colour-blocking can work for everyone! x
