"Colour block fashion is one of the hottest new trends for the season. It combines the use of two or more blocks of colour in an ensemble. This could be for a top, bottom, tunic, a dress and even a handbag or shoes. Simply it means – creating an outfit by putting areas or blocks of solid color next to each other. It can include monotone, bright colours, muted colors, contrasting and complimentary colors. Clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories can all feature color block designs or can make up different blocks of color to be put together for a color block outfit."
Um, back in the day, we used to call this mis-matching. And it wasn't a trend. It was more like: either you got dressed in the dark or might be suffering from vision problems because that hot pink/fuchsia shirt doesn't exactly "go with" those orange pants. And then my mother would send me back upstairs to change. Nevertheless, this is fashion. And as fashion goes, so do we.
And quite honestly, I kind of like it. Although, I don't know if I am daring enough to pull it off intentionally. At the very least, this new trend will provide me with the perfect excuse on laundry day to combine random colors and still appear to be "put together."
