Love color? Like standing out from the crowd? Of course you do, fashionista!! This trend is all about pairing bold colors.

DON’T: Wear holiday colors,  crazy patterns (stick to solids), and no more than four colors total. The clown look is not fashionable!!

Celeb Sightings: Camilla Belle, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry

Wear with confidence and if you want to keep it tame, add neutral accents. Skinny budget color blocking is at Sears. Check out the line UK Style by French Connection. Yellow shorts and a purple top make for color block couture under $20.00.

Here are some other skinny budget picks for this bold and beautiful trend.

Tag: UK Style by French Connection Women’s Double Strap Tank, Orig. $9.99, Now $1.99.  I repeat $1.99!!!!!! What?!?! I bought it for $3 and thought I got a deal … at Sears.

Tag: UK Style by French Connection Women’s Rolled-Up Shorts, Orig. $19.90, Now $14.99 at Sears.

Take Note: This model has the most visible goosebumps I’ve ever seen. Am I the only one noticing this?

I own the top and shorts and love pairing them with my Calypso St. Barth for Target wedges. Add a white blazer for a business-casual look or a chunky turquoise necklace for extra color.
