Spring Summer 09 - Block Colours Trend

Another post about bright colours! You just can't get away from them for spring summer 09. One of my favourite trends on the catwalk was the block colour trend. It was almost as if it was inspired by fun and flamboyant children's wear. With combinations of primary colours and other juicy colours in bold blocks, the outfits for spring and summer this year exude energy and flamboyancy.

The brightness of the colours were balanced with simplicity and minimalism in the styles of clothes. This look is just so easy to do. Highlight your favourite areas of the body with the brightest colours and combine different coloured jersey separates for a fun and fresh take on this trend.

Alexander Wang - laid back separates in sugary pink and oranges make this outfit perfect for a girl that likes to stand out from the crowd in the right way.

Josh Goot - I love the green capelet and the way this whole outfit says laid back chic but in a very energetic way.

Valentino - A slightly more subtle version of this trend was created by combining purple and blue satin, an amazing look for the evening.

This look needs minimal accessories as the colours of the clothes speak for themselves. I love this 'you're something for me' necklace would be the ideal accessory to go with a bright colour block outfit.
