Fresh hues of pink, green, orange, yellow and blue scream attention. Mix and match colors together to bring new exciting energies to your life. Combine dresses, skirts, tops and accessories in any of these shades for a great pop of color. Update the basic neutrals by pairing them with orange, electric blue and neon green will result a fresh spin on your everyday look to the office or out on the town with the girls.

Of course, there are conservative ­ways of implementing some blocks of color into your wardrobe without going too far. For the office, the neutral color combo is ideal whether you're dressed up or down. Combining neutrals with a single pop of color is most flattering. This is easy to wear.

Colors are applied greatly in the form of prints such as stripes, polka dot, floral, and as well as fruit themed prints. The trend of designers mixing prints still stayed strong on the runway like stripes with floral prints. However, if you keep both kinds of prints in the same color family, the combination works well. It can be bright, engaging, and even a bit humorous.

A styling technique for color blocking is using colors that are complementary to each other. If you are daring enough, choose colors that are completely unexpected, eye catching and thought provoking. If you are unsure what colors to combine, the use of the color wheel and a bit of bravery can go a long way. With some acquired knowledge of the color wheel, start mixing and matching, and see the numerous possibilities.

Take a simple navy pencil skirt and pair it with a sheer nude(if you’re timid) or orange blouse. On top of that, a cropped white blazer paired with nude pumps, and your color blocking goes straight to the office with you. After work, you can change into Tory Burch’s navy flats with a white capped toe (seen at Bloomingdale’s) for a casual afternoon. Even if your wardrobe budget is a bit more modest, it is still very easy to rock this trend, just visit your patron retailers and pick up your favorite bold colors.
