( Rihanna - Frida Gustavsson - Amber Rose)
This trend post is like the complete opposite to the previous trend alert I made earlier, and I think I'm more in love with this trend . . . Color blocking! It's been seen on celebrities like Rihanna and Amber and on runways like Prabal Gurung's and Peter Som's spring 2011 shows. Vibrant oranges and electric blues, popping pinks, corals, greens, and yellows. Again with figure flattering items that are not skin tight.
It almost reminds me of a mesh between the mod fashion era and the 70s. Very psychedelic color combinations (and patterns, patterns are also very very in. . . at least in my world they are lol). I think this trend is so fun for summer. Can you imagine a bright orange pair of cuffed shorts with blue heels? I know I could. I think orange is definitely the "it" color this coming summer. The color blocking trend deals with everything from hair to nails. People are definitely becoming bold with their hair colors and other people, like me, are taking the more "subtle" approach with bright nail polishes. I tend to not match my manicures to my pedicures so that is definitely working in my favor this season (currently sporting 'Tropicalia' by Wet n Wild on my fingernails and 'For Audrey' on my toenails lol). Anywho, I definitely plan on indulging in all this color. If you've seen my video(s) on youtube, I mention how I'm always wearing black (it's my go to color) but hopefully this trend can break me out of my shell a little more because I am loving it.
