In case you have heard about the color block fashion, you should know that it is a style that has been popular during the 1960s and that is coming back in force. The only difference between the new style and the old style is that the current trend isn’t all about rectangles, as it has been in the past.
Although usually people think about clothing, color blocking extends to a lot more, including shoes, jewelry and handbags.

How to do it?
In case you would like to rock the newest trend, here is what to do: ditch all the old fall colors, like black and brown, and get a new pair of shoes, of bright colors. Consider red, pink, and also yellow. In case you add at least one of these you may be surprised what big effect it will have over the entire wardrobe.
Also think about your accessories. It has been mentioned that this also must have a contribution. Think about a green scarf, blue beret, or even orange gloves. As you can see you don’t have to get something very expensive in order to give a boost to your wardrobe. Also this is the right way in case you would like to use the color block technique.
What kind of jacket would you get for the fall? Most probably you would answer black or brown, something of a darker color. Well, this is the thing that you should change. Get something that normally you wouldn’t get, that has color and that is eye-catching.
Naturally you also have to think about the other colors that you have in your wardrobe. The biggest advantage of the trend is that you will be able to find out about your taste in colors and you can be trendy while doing so.
All in all, in order to be trendy and to have color block you can have some designer clothes, for example from the collection of Marc Jacobs, but you could also get some less expensive clothing, and match the different colors to achieve a similar result. You might know that fashion is not all about money, but good taste and a willingness to become a true fashionista.
Just keep in mind that this fall has to be more colorful than the ones before, and get all the colors around you that you didn’t dare to get until this trend came along.
