Colour blocking is this years must-have. It is an attempt to combine two or more vibrant blocks of colours in an ensemble for tops, bottoms, shoes, handbags and accessories. This trend started in spring 2011 with hot celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez and many more shown below! This colour-block craze is still going strong and most fashionistas can’t get enough of it.

Style Tip

Complimentary Colours

    • Team colours of the same family together.  It will give that harmonious look.
    • Keep warm tones like red and orange closer together.
    • Keep your look simple by wearing neutral coloured shoes.

    Combing Colours

      • Think contrasting colours like fiery orange with purples (like in the pictures shown above).
      • Wear lime green, melon, with rosy pinks to give that jarring combination.
      • Contrast it again with your shoes or your handbag.

    The weather in Toronto, Canada has been pretty crazy lately. It went for more than a month without rain, and all of a sudden we are having big heavy rain storms every other day! I don’t want to complain to mother nature but, come on, at least have lighter rain falls!

    Today I wanted to wear something light and airy for this hot and humid day, so I threw on this must-have piece, brown maxi. I wanted to add an edgy look since this dress wasn’t too exciting, so I added a cut-off vest with collar studs to give me just enough toughness. I got inspired with this look from a recent blog I did in early July called Maxi Dresses…Oh My! I also added an orange pashmina to give it a pop of colour which was inspired by Jessica Alba early this year (shown below…). This was a perfect outfit for me to beat the summer heat!

    What fabulous pieces would you wear to beat the summer heat?

    Today I felt like wearing bright Tropical colours since Toronto has been feeling really hot lately!
