But if you're not careful, mixing and matching widely-varied hues will end up making you look like a clown.

The good news is that there are plenty of ways to work this trend while still looking classic, pretty, and feminine.

Check out some of my favorite color-blocked clothing and accessories and figure out which opposing colors from your own closet will look great when paired together after the jump.
