You guys, is spring FINAALLLLYYY here? *walks 20 feet away from cubicle to find nearest window* YEP! IT IS! And thank god, right? It feels like we’ve been wearing black FOR. EV. ER, and now we’re finding every excuse in the book to sport head-to-toe color. One of the bestbestbest spring trends that we’re obsessed with is color blocking. It looks exactly like it sounds: You pair two or more solid bright pieces together to form one uh-mazing, look-at-me outfit. You can match, mismatch, mix cold and warm colors, anything you want! There are NO rules, but we suggest keeping the accessories low key since your outfit will do all the talking. Check out how these bloggers mastered this look.

This Venezuelan-living-in-Argentina blogger is straight up FUN. You can scroll through her blog for hours (don’t judge me) and never get bored of her super exciting and fashionable life. We love her ’70s-inspired color-blocked ensemble which includes a smooth canary yellow tank paired with vintage emerald green flares and tangerine orange espadrille wedges. Also, the pop of red from her necklace and her mismatched bracelets add a little flair to her ensemble (not to mention her to-die-for ombre strands!). PERF.

Cilla B. of FashBerries
Cilla is a true New York girl! She came prepared for any weather that spring throws her way. She’s carrying a lightweight H&M trench (lined with leopard print! We die.) in case of a sudden downpour and also sports tortoiseshell sunglasses to protect her from the strong summery rays. She opted for complementary royal purple Graver Studios blouse with a bold Forever 21 pencil skirt for this ensemble, and we love that she kept ALL of her accessories neutral, including her clutch, which she made herself. Get it!

Texas girl Jaclyn Welch proves you CAN mix red and pink and look totally fabulous. We love her chic high bun and minimal makeup, which doesn’t distract from her outfit. She, too, has a pop of leopard in her ensemble with a Neiman Marcus belt. But we would NEVER guess the rest of the outfit is thrifted! She looks like a million bucks and, um, would you kill us if we also bought those Dolce Vita shoes?
