The latest colour blocking trend to hit women’s fashion will make your wardrobe pop this summer.
Here, The Sun’s fashion desk shows off five outfits that are all bright, bold colours as spring gets underway.
Pink is the big colour this season
MY wardrobe is bursting with colour but I tend to stick to one pop of colour, then mix it in with some neutrals.
However, tonal dressing has really taken off. Amanda Holden and Holly Willoughby are pros at it and always look great.
Pink is a big colour this season. From Dior to Chanel, it was everywhere on the catwalks and now on the high street. I love this dark pink dress from Nasty Gal. The empire-line style is super flattering, plus the silky material isn’t too heavy. That means you can wear it through the seasons as we transition into some warmer weather.
This is the perfect wedding outfit paired with a pink bag and patterned shoes to break up the block colour.
It’s a winner for me.

This season I decided to give colour blocking the green light.
THIS season I decided to give colour blocking the green light.
A cool on-trend co-ord is totally up my street, letting my wardrobe work harder with minimal effort.
Denim is huge this season, with the high street releasing various denim edits across brands.
I’ve mixed the two trends to create the perfect chic throw-on look.
Sporting this co-ord in a block of neon brings this otherwise old-season trend totally up to date. Add darker shades of green with accessories, like stylish mules, to elevate the look and give it an expensive feel.
As a colour blocking sceptic, with my otherwise neutral wardrobe I was taking myself far out of my comfort zone here.
But I am 100 per cent converted . . . and now totally obsessed.

ONE thing I don’t have a problem with is wearing colour.
My wardrobe is like a rainbow.
Keeping things tonal is actually one of my favourite ways to wear colour
People often ask me about my favourite colour.
And while I can never really answer, I would say orange is a strong contender.
Keeping things tonal is actually one of my favourite ways to wear colour.
I love mixing shades and tones of the same colour to deliver a polished look.
The fit of this Zara dress is super-flattering with the gathered waist area and midi length.
I own this coat and I’ve never been stopped so many times in the street with people asking me where it’s from, or any time it makes an appearance on my Instagram. It’s an item I’ll be keeping for seasons to come.

I love this powder-blue power suit from Zara
AFTER ditching my beloved head-to-toe black during a fashion mid-life crisis five years ago, I decided to embrace colour.
And once I started wearing it, I have to say I was addicted.
I noticed that wearing colour helped lift my mood.
Whether it was a bright-red suit for work or a yellow quilted dog-walking coat at the weekend, block brights and even softer sorbet shades gave me the boost I needed.
I love this powder-blue power suit from Zara.
It ticks all my occasion-wear boxes. It is perfect for a spring wedding or a day out at the races, and is also chic but is comfortable enough for me to wear to work with a T-shirt as well.
Head-to-toe tonal dressing has the feel-good factor, so I am in.

I chose to break up the intense block of colour with this Seventies-inspired shirt
I AM usually one for all things neutral, mainly in dark shades.
But when it comes to tonal, only colour will do.
If I fancy a splash of colour in my looks, it’s always red. Be it a lippy or sunglasses, the hot hue is my go-to.
Head-to-toe red was a big hit on this season’s catwalks, with top designers Richard Quinn and Balmain sending their models down the runway in fiery tones.
While red is bright and exciting, the vivid tone can be overwhelming and as someone who is something of a wallflower, I chose to break up the intense block of colour with this Seventies-inspired shirt.
Tucked into a pair of ultra-flattering wide-leg trousers, I will be wearing this when the sun shines.
But for now, while the weather is chillier, I will style it layered with a calf-grazing overcoat.
