Going along with out Spring Fashion Show theme: The Color Theory, I decided to do a post with inspiring color block outfits. Every time I see a new trend coming from the runways it is a huge challenge to bring that trend to my every day style. Color Block combinations have to be done correctly or can turn into a big mess.

The challenge: Put up several outfits for different life situations with affordable clothes. And remember, following the color block trend! My good friend and model Ashley Polanco got together to style our own clothes and do a photo shoot for you.

Going to class. Color Block can be applied to the simplest outfit. Combine one color piece with stripes.

Print + Accessories. Colorful shoes also build color block. Combine colors and prints.

Pastel Colors. Combine different pastel colors to create a more serious look, perfect to go to the office.

Bright  + Neutro. The brown oxfords give a little touch to the colorful combination, making sure the color block is not exaggerated.

Night Look. Add sparkling accessories and sophisticated fabrics and you will be ready to rock the night with a color block twist.

As you can see color block can be used anywhere, anytime.. Combine the colors you like and follow some of our tips! Hopefully our suggestions will help you finally wear that runway trend you never imagined in your closet!
