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).
