Want to go against the reoccurring color blocking trend?

The monochromatic trend is an unexpected yet interesting trend for Spring 2012.

Who would of thought that mixing to different shades of orange would look good together, or what about the same shade of orange?
The great thing about this trend is that it works with any color, for any occasion. This trend could be added into a casual daytime outfit, or even a night outfit!

This trend was seen all over the runways.

Clearly there are two "parts" to this trend:

-mixing colors of the same shade, but not exact colors

-mixing the exact same colors together

If too much of one color is overwhelming to you, try adding a dull colored belt or shoes to balance out the color.
