4 Ways to Wear Bold, Block Colours

 Block colours have never been so in vogue - just look to the likes of Bottega Veneta and Gucci for inspiration - with unusual colour combinations (bold, clashing shades) being teamed together, this look is one of the most eye-catching and fashion forward ways to update your wardrobe, and is a trend which we will continue to see into Spring/Summer 2011 - as seen at Fendi and Jil Sander. Below is 4 different looks, which pile on the colours without looking an ooze of sophistication in the process - for best results, play with citrus shades, and fearlessly clash different combinations (try red with pink, orange with lime green, or mix shades of purple).
