Basics of Colorblocking


Today, I'm having some fun with bright and bold colours to get me excited for Spring. Colorblocking is such a classic trend that I don't find myself wearing nearly as much as I'd like to. Recently, I spotted this fun colorblocked light-weight sweater, and it inspired me to put this look together. 

Colorblocking doesn't have to be intimidating, and by adding a top that contains a mix of colours, whether it be strips, polka dots or floral, you've already created a colour blocked outfit. Simple, right? Now, for shoes and accessories, pull one or even two colours from your top. Or, you can go with a neutral bag or shoes, as the top already takes centre stage.

You can get this exact sweater here to create this look, or you can select from some other great options below. 




Sweater: H&M (buy here, similar, similar, similar, similar, similar, similar), Jeans: H&M (buy here) | Heels: Brackelle's (buy here) | Clutch: Sam Edelman (buy here)

  1. I used to love colourblocking trend and now it has been so long since I've last worn something similar. It would be perfect trend for spring. H&M sweater is pretty, and blue pairing looks fab! Have a great weekend! :)
