Fashion Trends 2011 - Colour Blocking

By Imogenl @ImogenLamport
If you've been in outer Mongolia this past week and haven't seen any pictures from the British Royal Wedding,. then you may not have realised that color blocking is the fashion trend at present.
Fashion Trends 2011 - Colour Blocking
Some of the outfits (like Tara Palmer-Tompkinson's all ultramarine outfit) were over the top with their color blocking, really a nude shoe and a matte gold clutch wouldn't have gone astray in this look.
The art of color blocking with different colours is to either choose a color and a complimentary neutral, or to choose two colours of similar strength (intensity/saturation of the colour) and undertone (warmth or coolness).
