Shopping For: An Update on the Colour Blocking Rules

Shopping For: Colour Blocking
Shop The Edit: 1. Colour block shirt from Uniqlo // 2. Tomato red mid-heels from ASOS // 3. Blue nail polish by Nails Inc // 4. Stripe and spot jumper from Topshop // 5. Silk colour block dress by Roksanda Ilincic // 6. Aztec print trousers by MSGM // 7. Pleated skirt by Carven // 8. Leather bowling bag by Clare Vivier

Colour blocking is still a fashion favourite, and for Spring/Summer 2013 designers are focusing on a single colour palette: tangerine, cobalt, black, red and white. Roksanda Ilincic confidently mixed the shades at her London show, presenting a hit collection of bold, patchwork dresses. Centre your look around Roksanda’s slick shift dress [above], or pull together a selection of standout separates for a modern take on the trend. My favourites include Uniqlo’s neat little shirt, MSGM’s printed trousers and Clare Vivier’s red bowler bag. Are you still a fan of colour blocking? How do you wear the look?

  • Those printed trousers are amazing. I always thought plain colour blocking was a bit boring. Love the idea of adding prints.

  • Great post! I love all of these, and that pleated skirt is such a luscious colour!

    Much love,

  • Not sure I like the tangerine personally. But I really like the shirt 🙂
