This is how to colour-block the right way

Today I am wearing a colour combination that was once considered a big “Don’t” in the fashion handbook.

Thank God those days are far behind us; as more and more designers, retailers and street style stars are breaking the rules and embracing those not-so-likely combinations.

And, being the rule breaker that I am, I just had to jump on this trend. I absolutely love this bold combination, especially since I’ve vowed to wear nothing but bright, bold colours this winter.

I’m not sure for how long I can keep this up, but I’m definitely going to give it my all in the hopes of brightening up my and your winter days.
