Color blocking is all the rage right now, and it’s a great way to update your wardrobe. You can do it with pieces you have in your closet, just by putting them together in new ways.

Sure, you can buy a piece that is color-blocked, like a dress or a great pair of pumps.

But you can also put together a colorblocked outfit of mixed separates from your closet that will be the envy of all your friends.

If you want to dip your baby toe into the colorblocking trend, try two tops in contrasting colors with a neutral bottom.


Or go all out with an outfit combining pieces in contrasting bold saturated hues.

I put this outfit together on Polyvore. I would love to wear something like this!

How about YOU? Do you like the colorblocking trend? Have you worn it yet?
