Bi-color, Splash of Color, and Color-block
The last color trend that will be highly anticipated for the next summer is the continuity of color-block but in slightly different way from the previous 2012. If last season’s color block was mostly dominated by bold and striking tones, this year’s color block is going to be seen in much subtler and softer shades with additional stripe patterns to highlight the blocking hues.
And if, in fact, there are still bright colors appeared, it will only be a splash of color to give a little eye-popping touch to the entire look, for example, chic little black dress matched with footwear and handbag in striking hot pink. Meaning, several color block styles will come with sense of splash of colors by using only two colors combination – either bold or subtle – between different pieces of the outfit, for example between blouse and skirt, dress and bags and shoes, etc.
