Adventures in colour blocking

Colour blocking isn’t just about grabbing a few coloured pieces and throwing them together. It takes an understanding of complimentary colours; of making different hues work together to create maximum impact.

Strikingly photographed by Matt Feddersen, this shoot is inspiration on colour blocking in bold yet feminine tones. Stylist Rachel Harris pulls together berry shades and burnt orange, turquoise and golden yellow in softly textured outfits.

And the mandatory accessory for a great colour blocked look in winter 2011? A pair of boldly coloured opaque tights, of course.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
