TREND - Colour Blocking for Spring

This morning I found myself heading out the door with a bright blue coat and bright red scarf. Not usually considered much of a style statement but I've clearly been affected by the wave of colour blocking that keeps cropping up this season. Bold is just better it seems.

I stumbled across these pics from Giorgio Armani Prive' in my inbox and just loved the blue dress with red. Perhaps my inspiration for today's outfit. The Capri style trousers are a key shape for the season too, try them slightly cropped for summer. The look is dramatic but there are definitely elements of it that work in a mere mortal's wardrobe.

The blurb: "Silk fabrics with almost wet look stripes capture every shimmer of light. Shapes are iconic and utterly modern, sketching a petite silhouette with tiny shoulders."
