If you've flipped through any fashion magazine this past spring, it's safe to assume that you would have come across an editorial featuring color blocking. Now that the resort 2012 collections are coming to a close, it's become obvious that this trend is not going anywhere--in fact, it seems to be more popular than ever.
More specifically, we've noticed it on countless short dresses. And why not? Resort collections seem like the perfect place for fun, easy, and colorful clothing. In fact, many of the looks show few additional accessories, presenting them as ideal for simple, no-fuss dressing.
Whether through fringe, fabric or sequins, expect to see plenty of color-blocking in the next year. Click through to see highlights from the resort collections.
