Color-blocked clothing and accessories are a hot trend right now among celebrities and socialites, including brand new CoverGirl model Sofia Vergara.
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.
