Just because you want to wear the latest fashion trends and styles, doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune. Refinery29 recently posted an informative how-to guide about color blocking, the popular fashion trend that has taken over this summer. The R29 global editor (Connie Wang) suggested pairing colors that are similar to each other (like the dresses depicted in this post: Orange & Magenta or Red & Fuchsia Pink), in addition to off-setting the bright colors with neutral toned accessories. This week’s High-End vs. Affordable style post features maxi dresses, color blocked jewelry, and metallic gold gladiator style flat sandals.
