colour-block-shoes.jpgColour blocking is one of the season's biggest trends, and it's a look you can have an awful lot of fun with. Create bold, graphic shapes with large toy-like blocks of colour for maximum effect, and don't be afraid to use shades that we're traditionally told will clash.

You'll be seeing this look all over sandals, loafers, wedges and tree-trunk heels this summer, and while you can have all the fun you like with the colours of your choice, the main thing is to keep it chunky. We've picked out a few of our favourite styles from the high street here.
