With a few months before spring comes, almost all designers from various countries have already showcased their spring 2012 collections in their respective country's fashion week. The Philippines is no different, launching various brands and designers' spring collections during this year's Philippine Fashion Week. With this being said, I am very excited to see that color blocking is still alive and kicking next spring. What I love most about color blocking is the fact that it shows one's creativity and style in mixing and matching certain colors. Anyone can wear an all-black outfit but only true Fashionistas can rock two to five colors in one look without looking like a clown or Rainbow Brite.

Color blocking can be very tricky, especially in college fashion. Everyone wants to look stylish and unique but no one would wants to be labeled as the Nicki Minaj or Lady Gaga of the campus. That is why color blocking should be carefully thought out and done with taste. A tip I learned from experience is to limit one outfit's colors to just three shades. This CollegeFashionista got it right with this sheer three-tone top. She wore this top on top of  a black dress and paired it with black flats and brown bag. Aside from the three-color rule that she got right, she was also able to pull-off my next tip. Another tip I have learned from the spring 2012 collections of different fashion brands and designers, like Peter Som, Vena Cava, Victoria Beckham and Yigal Azrouel's Cut25, is to wear color blocking pieces that are of horizontal stripes. It adds depth and style to one's outfit without looking too over the top. Get inspired by this CollegeFashionista's three-tone, horizontal striped, color blocking trend this coming spring.
