Do you like to make a statement? I do. Clearly. If you do too, then this trend is for you.

If you appreciate clean cut lines and bold graphic shapes, then you are in luck this Spring. Colorblocking has taken over. It can be spotted throughout every major genre of fashion including (but not limited to): shoes, apparel, accessories, jewelry, lingerie, etc, etc. It's totally fun and very Mondrian-esque. His famous painting has inspired infinite amounts of items ranging from sneakers to beach front houses. (I am not joking, see my images at the bottom of the page.) Everyone is taking their cue from the man himself and spinning colorblocking their way. See a wide array of items below all with one thing in common--- THEY. ARE. C-BLOCKED. Take a look for yourself :)
