A lot of women are afraid of the color blocking trend, especially in the work place. The best way to think about it is to buy pieces in bright solid colors (try not to invest in too many pieces that are already color blocked) and mix and match them. Most of these colors are classic brights, so they will retain their fashionability once the trend is long gone. Rule of thumb- pick two or three bright colors and mix them with black or neutrals.
