Colorblock dressing

I ran across this nice little article about wearing brightly colored dresses inspired by Mondrian paintings. It's a fun trend that most everyone can participate in to an extent, I do like the advice in the article -

Colorblocking is definitely a trend meant to be worn by the masses this spring, not just the designer customer, says Suze Yalof Schwartz, Glamour's fashion editor at large. She recommends buying a garment that's already colorblocked for you, though, instead of creating your own with a top, belt and skirt — all in different colors.

One insider trick Yalof Schwartz offers is to wear neutral-colored shoes no matter what hues are part of your colorblocked outfit: "I prefer when you match your shoes to your skin tone. It will make legs look longer," she says.

For an inexpensive and less scary way to get into the trend, this dress from Target is cute -
