With Easter just a few weeks away and Summertime officially starting this weekend as the clocks go forward it’s time for me to add some Spring colour to my wardrobe. On duller days it may just be a little, a scarf or a bag. But then again aren’t dull days made brighter by wearing a happy Summer colour? I’ve picked three colours to give you some wardrobe inspiration, pink, orange and yellow. And here are some suggestions of how to wear them.
Adding a little colour:
Sweatshirt Joules, Boyfriend jeans Mint Velvet, Pink Bag Lulu Guiness, Pink shoes Jigsaw. Stripe top Boden, Grey jeans Boden, Yellow tote bag Coccinelle, Silver trainers Carvela. Navy/white top Mango, White jeans Betty Barclay, Scarf Beck Sondergaard, Orange bag Ralph Lauren, Wedges Boden.
The new way to wear jeans is in a boyfriend shape but made feminine with heels, and what better than pink heels to say I’m all woman? Wear just one small piece of colour in the form of a pair of shoes or do as I have here and make a bit more of a statement with two pieces of colour. Neutrals like black, navy and grey are made more fun with a pop of bright colour.
Adding more colour:
Floral top Boden, Skirt Gerard Darel, Orange bag and wedges as before. Pink top John Lewis, jeans bag and shoes as before. Navy top Boden, Yellow embroidered skirt Boden, Navy bag Tula, Navy suede shoes LK Bennett, Yellow scarf Whistles.
This time the colour is added in a piece of clothing and an accessory to pull it together. As summer comes white and lighter neutrals like cream, biscuit and taupe look great with bright colour.
Full on colour:
Yellow dress Damsel in a Dress, Tie front cardigan Boden, Bag and shoes as before, Orange dress Fenn Wright Manson, Black jacket Fenn Wright Manson, Black bag Reiss, Two tone shoes Kurt Geiger. Pink dress Baukjen, Scarf Jaeger, Grey Bag Reiss, Grey shoes Mint Velvet.
If you are braver why not go for a bright dress that exudes confidence? Clash your brights, mix with more sober black or tone down a little with grey.
Will you be breaking into colour? And will it be a little or a lot?
