In case you didn’t know, colour blocking’s hot this season, and if you ask us, the bolder the better.

But teaming clashing Crayola separates can be a tricky business, especially if you’re not the bravest of the bunch.

So we’d like to introduce you to a little thing we’re calling our hero piece – Sportmax’s Gerla block stripe shift dress.

Taking all the leg work out for you with one easy piece, this defiant dress was made to make a statement, and with its striking red and pink stripes, there’s no chance of slipping in unnoticed.

But that’s not to say it’s try-hard, either – though it might be vibrant, its simple shift shape and sharp pleats provide the perfect pared-down base for effortless spring style.

Colour blocking doesn’t have to be hard, y’know.
