47 Chromatic Color-Blocking Fashion Finds

From Cozy Color-Blocked Coats to Multi-Tonal Streetwear

— February 7, 2013 — Fashion
Adding a pop of energy is as simple as adopting the colour-blocking fashion trends that can be found within this chromatic collection of contemporary designs. Although colour-blocking isn't a new trend, it has begun to explode with the concept being tweaked and transformed to better evolve into the 21st century fashion world.

The most important thing to note about the selections in this collection is that they don't simply block colors with different pieces, but actually feature a number of designs that are boldly blocked with different shades on the same garment. This is a much more structurally appealing design aesthetic that differs from the ombre style that is currently flooding the catwalks. So, stand tall, walk fiercely and take these colour-blocking fashion finds as inspiration to get a little chromatic.
