Myer S/S Collection - Colour blocking

Now that spring and summer are arising in Australia in around a month’s time, one of the popular key trends currently on the catwalk is the colour blocking/ colour clashing trend, which is also a favourite of mine. I was kindly asked by 2threads to blog about Myer’s S/S collection. There is such varieties regarding the different designers who had joined up with Myer for this collection and as you can see, a lot of them have incorporated vibrant colours into their pieces. Here are some of my favourites:

I'm going to take this post as an opportunity to also style my own interpretation of the colour blocking trend which I have not posted on my blog yet. Colour blocking is not for everyone as a lot of people are use to sticking with monotone colours such as black or white. However if this is your case and you do like the trend, I suggest starting off wearing something simple, such as a bright clutch because something that simple can still stir up an outfit. Here's my version, inspired by the Myer S/S collection.
Dangerfield floppy hat, Sportsgirl top, Valley Girl skirt, Windorsmith boots, Miss Shop clutch
Weirdly, this hot pink clutch matched perfectly with the colour of my top. I also can't wait for summer so that I can wear this mustard floppy hat that I bought recently out more! The bow at the back of the hat is such a bonus.

I actually quite like the Myer S/S 11 collection for once! I am more of the DJ girl, but Myer does bring in some good brands also (and perhaps a little more affordable?)

Gorgoeus outfit! I like your colour blocking, you have really pulled it off!
