Bold clashing colours have never looked so good…
Eighties style colour blocking is back! Wave goodbye to boring neutrals this season and say hello to bold brights.
When Christopher Kane sent his models down the runway in a mishmash of neon yellow lace, teamed with brown pringle patterns and clashing orange neon, the fashion world was spun into a turmoil.
With 2010 being the year of minimalism with shades of camel, nude and grey at the forefront of fashion, colour had never been so quiet.
However 2011 catwalks were filled with bright, bold colour clashes and a rainbow array of midi skirts and 70s palazzo pants and suddenly everyone began to question – where have our trustworthy neutrals gone?
Many snorted at the thought of teaming a hot pink sheer shirt with bright orange wide-legged trousers, however fast-forward to Spring 2011 and it is the epitome of chic.
Those of you who remain faithful to black and neutrals need not worry, the colour clash trend is simple and easy to incorporate into your wardrobes.
For those who normally shy away from bold colours, here we provide a simple way to wear to the 80s colour blocking trend.
It can be a simple as some hot pink heels or a pair of deep purple trousers, and right now any colour goes when copying this look.
