3 Color Combinations You Thought Would Never Work

Summer’s just around the corner and it is color blocking time! Here are some unusual color combinations that you thought would never work!

Color blocking was the trend last spring and summer, and after surviving the dark shades of winter it’s back to spice up our spring and summer outfits.

Fashioning this trend may seem hard, but it’s actually pretty simple. However, be extremely careful not to overdo it. If you feel brave enough and want to indulge this trend, pick two of your favorite summer colors and mix them up to create a bold and eye-catching outfit.

Some of these color combinations may sound crazy, but if you try them out, you’ll see that they will work just fine. At the end of the day, fashion is all about being bold, creative and innovative, so you shouldn’t miss this trend – it’s so much fun!

Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole are among fashion icons that did some serious and definitely successful color blocking, using purple and orange. The best way to do it would be to mix orange high heels with purple trousers. Keep the rest of the outfit and the accessories simple.
