Colour Blocking: The New Athleisure Trend
No you haven't just blinked and teleported back to the 80's. You are in actual fact still firmly in 2018, just with an 80s twist, thanks to the resurgence of the infamous colour blocking trend. The colour-clashing trend so loved by the 80's was all about taking colours that are opposite on the colour wheel and pairing them together to make eye-catching and complimentary colour combinations. Think purples and blues, yellows and greens and reds and pinks...basically just any colours that shouldn't go together thrown together on a piece of clothing to make one eye-catching piece. Don't say we didn't warn you, when it comes to the colour block trend, it's go bold or go home!
But forget the overbearing colour clashing of the 80's, because the fashion trend has had a modern refresh and is back in a much more wearable form for 2018 thanks to the introduction of more neutral hues such as pastels, greys and whites. Bold colours such as orange and red have been toned down with the addition of black and white to seperate the two clashing tones and slogans break up the colour blocking, making it far more wearable than the infamous pieces of the 80's. Colour blocking is the new way to wear leisurewear, so it's time to embrace fashion's colour-mixing trend and give your off-duty wardrobe a colourful refresh. From sassy colour block slogan hoodie dresses in eye-catching hues to colour block bodysuits that scream sports luxe to throw-on-and-go colour block sweats, if the colours don't clash, then we're not interested sorry!
