Style Q&A: Color Blocking for Fall?

Dear Young Sophisticates,
Is color blocking still going to be trendy for fall? What pieces should I buy so that I can wear this trend?

Let me assure you, color blocking is here to stay for fall 2011! The color blocking trend was all over the runway for Spring/Summer 2011 and happily the trend will remain as the weather turns cooler.

It seems hard to think about fall when it is blazing hot in most parts of the country right now, but it time to start thinking about key pieces to add to your fall wardrobe.

You can wear your color-block clothing or accessories now or later in the fall months as well.

Olivia Palermo wore her long color-blocked dress with a hot pink clutch.

Get the look with Alice + Olivia combo dress - the 70s inspired blouse with a deep plum skirt is the perfect way to rock the color-block trend into fall.

Embrace the trend with a color block cashmere sweater - this navy and mustard yellow sweater is completely cool and delivers an unexpectedly sophisticated color palette.

If you don't favor bright colors, but want to try the color-block look, check out this Yigal Azrouel graphic cream and gray silk-blend sweater. A neutral basic that will become your fall must-have piece.

Get the look for less with ASOS bright and fun carryall for around $35.
