The summer trend of 2011 has seen the emergence of bold, block colours and graphic prints take over many of the high street stores, emulating the popular trend that has graced many catwalks and designer stores, but how easy is it to wear these bold prints?  Which colours can be worn together and will this fashion formula continue into autumn?

This fashion buzz of blocked colours and vibrant prints has been one of the biggest, boldest and loudest trends to hit the stores in a number of years.  The muted and neutral tones that have taken over the shops, have been thwarted by electric, bold, blocks of colour and patterns and this fashion statement is set to continue into this season.

Everybody can wear this style regardless of an individuals shape or size, but there is no room for modesty, as trends such as these will certainly make you stand out from the crowd.

Cobalt blue works with muted neutrals (greys and blacks), but it also looks great with a pop of bright yellow or orange


The Colour Block

As the autumn season shortly begins, colour combinations of hot pinks, tangerine, yellow, green and cobalt blue are the stand out, eye catching colours, screaming to be paired together, rather than be worn as a stand-alone colour.

Fashion forward celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian have all become a fan of this trend and have been spotted experimenting with this style.

For those who are more self-conscious of their body, preferring to show less skin, vibrant colours can also be practical, as knitted tops and tailored trousers can be an effective way of staying quietly on trend as bright trousers appear to be remaining firmly at the front of the fashion stakes.


This look can be effectively accessorised with gold for maximum impact, as long as they are rather subtle.  A gold belt or gold bag as seen on the Gucci catwalk helps to create a glamorous effect or a simple piece of gold jewellery such as large gold earrings, or a necklace help to add a touch of elegance to the statement outfit.

Either way this unique season’s fashion is all about exploring fun colours, bold prints such as flowers, stars and hearts and statement accessories for each individual to bravely experiment with and enjoy wearing with pride.  This autumn, it is definitely a great way to brighten up a gloomy, winter wardrobe.
