One of my favorite retail magazines -along with many of you I’m sure- is the ASOS Magazine. It doesn’t just showcase the latest collections from ASOS and it’s brands, it is also compiled with trend pieces featuring striking imagery, mini interviews, fashionable celebrity photoshoots and on-trend beauty news.
So when I received the latest issue, I felt the usual rush of excitment as I tore off the plastic packaging. Jam-packed with lots of S/S11 trend news, I was particularly interested to see pages and pages dedicated on the colour blocking trend tipped to be massive this Spring/Summer.
From neon to bold blocks, colour is coming to our catwalks in the form of an array of brights including cobalt blues, daffodile yellows and fuscia pinks. 2011 is set to be the year where mixing and matching all colours of the rainbow is fashionably acceptable, it is moving forward from 2010 which saw lots of muted hues and natral shades being layered up.
If colour blocking is something that slightly frightens you, then try pairing a bright top with denim jeans to break up the bold-ness. Embrace the brights!
