Remember Color-Blocking? Here's How to Do It for Spring 2017

Can’t wait to try out spring’s trends? We’re right there with you. Taking cues from the S/S 17 runways, we’re especially excited to adopt more color into our wardrobes—and lots of it. We’re not just talking about adding a bright coat or bag as a stand-alone statement; we’re talking about mixing shades together in some unexpected ways. Know where we’re going with this?

That’s right: color-blocking. It’s been around for so long that it’s now part of the fashion vernacular, but that’s not to say it doesn’t wax and wane in popularity. For spring, it’s taking center stage again by moving away from its traditional form, which uses coordinating pieces in contrasting tones from opposite sides of the color wheel. By way of brands like Boden, this season’s subtler take on the trend favors simple silhouettes with bold primary hues that can be mixed and matched in a way that’s street style–approved. Don’t be confused though; color-blocking isn’t just for the sartorially brave. Wearing a look in energizing colors can be a great confidence booster—and who doesn’t like that? 

At a loss as to where to begin? Scroll down for three different ways to make the trend your own.
