Bright Colours Are All The Rage
From hot pants and boy shorts to high split dresses, the trends just keep rolling in for Spring/Summer 2010!!
But the rage is COLOUR! Fuschia jumpsuits, magenta skirts, turquiose dresses, canary yellow... you get the drift.
The brights are back!! From Herve Leger and Balmain to Versace, this trend has been gracing the runways of this season's fashion weeks. And now it has trickled done to the everyday person through department stores!
However, I have been seeing some hot messes being made out of this trend... sigh... so I'm going to give you guys some pointers! It doesn't have to be ridiculously bold! It could be a subtle taste of yellow within a earthy pattern.
Such as this Versace dress in the Spring/Summer 2010 collection-
One doesn't have to make a complete spectacle of oneself when you just can't get things right by becoming a neon MESS like this Proenza outfit!--
This outfit could be easily toned done with a nice black boyfriend blazer, which also happens to be in this season! ;)
All the major designers have been using vibrant colours, thus spurring the block colour trend.
But how can you get on trend?
Well the primary factor is the colour, and the hottest colour for 2010 is definitely electric blue - the stronger and more vibrant the better. Cobalt through to indigo blue, there are many ways to wear it and make the most of this trend including: tights, tops and multi-block.

For all those who don't know, multiblock was very much present this season, with Alexander Wang wrap dresses on the catwalk and with stripes of block colour being seen on celebs like Diane Kruger and Lindsay Lohan this season. It is a harder look to pull off as it is all about the one piece. If you are a bit frightened of so much colour after a winter of black and grey, then the trick is to take a big breath and go for it; the brighter the colours the better for Spring.
Slim women look great wearing the horizontal blocks, but shapely women should stick to darker shades around the hips.
The great thing about this trend is that it looks like it will last through spring and into summer, and is flexible enough to flatter all shapes and sizes. You can go for the colours that best suit your complexion and have fun... colour is back!
