Fashion Trend Alert: High-Contrast Color Blocks

Bright colors have been in the fashion spotlight for a while now, and they are still going strong in one of this season’s hottest fall trends, high contrast color blocks.

Designers mixed electric colors with geometric shapes for this graphic, eye-catching, fall fashion trend. From Mondrian’s plaid shifts to Balencia’s black and white tunic paired with ultraviolet trousers, this season’s runway look is all about color.

This trend is a show-stopper – just remember not to go overboard with this look; color blocks are chic, but accidentally go too far with this trend and you can end up looking like a clown on his way to a birthday party. Choose one color block piece and pair it with a simple and classic solid garment.

Try pairing a high contrast, black and white color block sweater with some skinny jeans or a classic solid blouse with color block trousers. Perhaps if you are feeling a little more daring, try a color block dress with some bright accessories, such as Prada’s geometric print dress paired with electric yellow boots (see below).
