One of the hottest trends of the season is the use of bright color. It takes on a special intensity when it appears over a large portion of a design, an effect heightened when a bright color is combined with other bright hues. With color block designs, bold hues appear side by side, intensifying the eye-catching effect of each individual color. Sometimes the mix of colors occurs in one garment or accessory, but the look is also easy to achieve with a juxtaposition of garments and accessories of bright solid hues.
Color block looks are especially easy to accomplish with sporty apparel and active wear, as bright colors are prevalent in such garments. For instance, here is a recent ad from Lacoste highlighting casual apparel in eye-popping primary colors.
