Who would've thought that the fashion industry invented a trend just for moms? Well, maybe they didn't invent the color block trend for mothers, but it's almost as though they had us in mind because - IT IS SO EASY! This color block trend is a mother's dream - pick any color t-shirt and colored bottoms, put them together, and instant style!

While I love the all white trend for Spring 2012, we all know that ain't gonna happen! So, why not embrace a trend that is do-able!
You really cannot mess up! Here, I've picked out a few pieces, all different colors. Pile on the colors - shirt, bottom, bangle, jacket, scarf...To make sure you aren't overdoing it, keep the shoes in the neutral family - brown, tan, silver, gold, gray, etc.
From top to bottom:
Old Navy Dolman-Sleeve Top, $14 (was $22.94);
Mango Tree Slim Bangle in sunny days, $21.00;
J. Crew Toothpick Jean in festival green, $108;
Longchamp Le Pliage Large Tote in navy, $145;
Anne Klein Grandly Loafer in light natural, $62.99 (was $79)*
*Note: These loafers are so comfortable, and run true to size!
If you are afraid of how to color block, start simple. So many lines have made it easy to add a color block item into your wardrobe. Here are a few pieces that have already been made color-blocked for you, so no need to worry about what color to pair it with.
