Colour blocking is another great trend for Spring and my take on it is easy and very wearable…

Colour blocking is a fun way to add a burst of spring into your wardrobe and the best way to do it is to pair three super-saturated hues to make one sharp look. Although I also love wearing my turquoise trousers with a purple blouse and red shoes, I have found that a dress is the fuss-free way to wear this trend.

At first it might seem alarming to pair a bright pink with orange and blue, but when I saw this Roland Mouret dress it all made sense to me! I love the structured shape, especially the cross detail on the back and the closest alternative I could find is from River Island but do also check out Roksanda,  French Connection,  Rejina Pyo and Topshop for alternative options.

The accessories should compliment the look and not overwhelm it, you can find a similar clutch to mine from Karen Millen or Kenzo and there are fab pink shoes at Manola Blahnik and Topshop.

Along with multi-hue dresses, you can also try mashing up a bright bag like Y-3 with shoes from Chie Mihara and wear with a more stripped back outfit. Or why not let bold jewellery like this necklace and bangle do all the talking? If brights are not your thing then make your ensembles a little simpler with a classic black and white color block, monochrome is always on trend and this Ralph Lauren dress is perfect. 

Have you tried colour blocking? Love It or leave It?
