Color blocking done right...

Colorblocking is a huge trend this spring / summer, but I've noticed that the fabric is just as important as the colors you choose. If the fabric isn't right (read: expensive looking), my fear is that I'll just end up looking like I'm wearing my latest thrift store haul.

To be on the safe side I'm going to stick with deep rich jewel tone colors and luxurious fabrics like satins and silk. I will also be reaching for gold accessories, like belts & big gold cuffs, just to tie in with the opulence of the fabrics.

My inspiration?

Aquilano Rimondi Spring 2011

And of course Gucci Spring 2011

I think Rihanna got it spot on with this outfit.
