Thursday Trend: Clashing Color-Blocking

You guys know there's nothing I love more than some good color-blocking. I especially love meshing colors you wouldn't ordinarily pair together.

Today's Thursday Trend is dedicated to that notion. I wanted to explore two color-blocking pairs that at first glance clash, but after further investigation, are lovely.

First up: Red and pink. First thought: Valentine's day vomited. Upon further investigation: Sweet and daring, simultaneously.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Emma Stone, Victoria Justice

Able to splurge?
Bottega Veneta, $1,385

On a more realistic budget?
Lulu's, $65

Next up: Orange and purple. First thought: Why?? Upon further investigation: Reminds me of South Beach, or somewhere warm. It's jarring, but edgy.. somewhat 70's. Don't know how to explain it, but I'm into it.
Cheryl Cole (DVF), Rose Byrne (Gucci), Jessica Alba (DVF)

Princess Diana knew what was up.

Able to splurge?
Gucci, $1,990

On a more realistic budget?
J. Crew, $59.99
Forever 21, $19.80
What are two seemingly clashing colors you've tried to color block? I'd love to see outfit photos!
