Summer is here and it’s hot! As we all know summer is all about colour and what better way to show this in an outfit than colour-blocking? What is colour-blocking? Colour-blocking literally means an outfit made up of 'blocks' of solid colour.This trend was a big hit last year, so why not continue it? However many are either confused on how to wear different 'blocks' of colour and usually get it wrong or they’re afraid of wearing so many bright colours on them.

So here are tips on how to wear this trend in the most fashionable way.

To play it safe, pair darker colours like black and brown with one lighter colour block

A colour block around the waist is a great way of highlighting an hourglass figure and 
drawing attention to your curves

Go for a neutral-toned shoes and go easy on the accessories to keep the rest of your look simple & Keep warmer tones like pink and red together. Don't you just love this look Emma Stone has pulled off?

To mix it up work regal purples in with contrasting, fiery oranges   

   If your outfit doesn't involve too much colour  you can mix it up with a loud, contrasting shoe or handbag, just like Reese Witherspoon

Iman's sky blue blouse is not happening with that bright yellow skirt.
Choose shades that have the same level of intensity like bright pinks with vivid fuchsias

Eliza Doolittle went overboard with that rainbow t-shirt. She would have  achieved a better look if she toned down her outfit with a plain black tee
