What is colorblocking you ask? According to the wise team at Corporate Fashionista, it is "when a garment is composed of finite blocks of color." Designers have been busy putting a modern new twist onto the trend that first had its debut in the 1960's. Pieces are bold and lines are simple, creating a fun and powerful punch in your wardrobe without being overpowering. You will find a wonderful array of colorblocked accessories in addition to clothing. A great way to dabble in this trend is with the many colorblocked shoes that are available.
