How to colour block

I find it slightly annoying when a style you have been working for some time becomes a 'Trend'. How rude! If you have been following my blog you will be well aware that my look is very much about colour and in particular the art of 'colour blocking'. Colour is an aesthetic I am very comfortable with and I love to experiment. In my day job as a Graphic Designer, I work closely with colour designing logos, brochures and print material and find that helps when I work my wardrobe.
If your slightly terrified at the prospect of colour blocking why not start with one colour; for example, if you mostly wear black why not try mixing in orange or yellow. If you want to be a wee bit more adventurous then think complimentary colours: red and blue, orange and grey or purple and red; look to nature for the best inspiration, especially of the flower variety. 
Here's a few Sleekit looks from over the last couple of years, yes can you believe I have just passed my second Anniversary, that's a whole lota colour. Go on have fun with it.
