The color block trend is still going strong and was all over the Spring 2012 runways. This look is a timeless favorite for the sunnier seasons and is the perfect way to brighten up your look without looking like a Crayola box.
Creating a head-to-toe colorblock look can be a little tricky, though. In addition to taking time, it also requires resources, especially for those of us who live our lives in neutrals. A much easier and cost-effective way to bring this trend into your wardrobe is with a colorblock handbag. I’m sure you know that the right handbag has the power to transform an entire outfit which is why handbags are universally considered to be worthy investments.
A colorblock bag can add a burst of fun into your look without taking you into a direction you’re not fully comfortable with. It can be used to complement an already colorful look or to breath some life into a simpler style.
