Trend Alert: Colourblocking

Whether you’re a fan of matchy-matchy separates, or partial to some multi-hue panelling; colour blocking is a long-standing trend that can be easily worked into your everyday wardrobe. The trend was found awash at #LFW – at Hermes, Marni and Valentino, to name but a few – meaning it’s never been more on-point to pack a colourful punch with your spring looks.

The Colours –
The ‘IT’ shades of the season, as dictated by the fashion powers-that-be, are found in a lush palette of spring brights that’ll send thoughts of February snowstorms packing quicker than you can say ‘adicolour’. Speaking of, adidas Originals’ latest collection presents a no-brainer approach to colour blocking separates, from zesty lemon to classic pillarbox red. Whether you want to show off your style credentials in a forest green T-shirt dress, or kick back in matching trefoil hoodie and timeless 3-stripe leggings – this collection is the perfect way to dip your toe in the trend.

Monochrome –
One of our current favourite ways to work more than one trend into our #OOTD is with a monochrome popper pant; taking us back to the ‘90s without a scrunchie or blue eyeshadow in sight. With styles from Ellesse, adidas Originals, Supply & Demand and Kappa to choose from, it’s all about conveying your personal style with the little details.

Panelling –
If top-to-toe colour feels a little daunting, you can still get in on the trend in subtler ways. One of the (many) beauties of sportswear is that pieces often feature piping, panelling and colour accents; meaning an investment into that co-ord you’ve been eyeing up will still take you through the colour block trend without a sitch. Nike Air have the daytime trend on lock with their Colourblock Crew Sweatshirt, whilst those looking to flaunt the trend when breaking a sweat will be all over the Nike Training Power Colourblock Tights.

Whatever way you wanna work those seasonal shades, we want to see! Show us your colour blocking Insta looks with #MeInJD.
