TREND: CRAZY FOR COLOUR BLOCKING




Since Earn Your Stripes, you know how I'm over the moon with the colour blocking revival, and how it's time to make a real statement. Here, I just wanted to take the opportunity to show you around the amazing high street choice, trying to guess just how much fun designers must have had while playing around with the trend.

My sub-categories are classic blocking, retro stripes, and the new block & stripe - for this latest group you get more colour clashes and more geometric variety, ending up in more op-art than ever before.

Just looking at all the shoes, dresses, tops and bags alone will get your own creative juices flowing, so go with it. No rules apply.
