Summer Trend Watch: Orange And Purple Color Mash-Up

|

We’ve noticed a color combination pop up more than usual on red carpets and magazine covers of late. It’s a trend within a trend, if you will. Orange and purple outfits are everywhere, making color blocking one of the biggest fashion must-do’s this summer. Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole were pitted against each other during The X-Factor and also took each other on by wearing the same shades. A pregnant Jessica Alba wore an orange and purple dress at the CFDA awards. Kim Kardashian wore a not so flattering version at her perfume launch in the UK, copying Jennifer Lawrence‘s Flare Magazine cover. Camilla Belle put her spin on it at a Pre-Grammy brunch, adding green pants to the mix. Finally, Rihanna rocked high-waisted orange pants and a purple crop-top in the UK.

But do we like it? Do we want to see more or do we want this trend to go away?  Who wore it best and who was a big fashion fail? Take a look after the jump at our gallery and then vote in our polls so we know what you’re thinking. Feel free to comment too!
