Colours have the power to lift up our wardrobes and spirits, and that is one of the many reasons I love spring so much. The freshness of pastel shades and the vibrant impact of strong hues, make us feel rejuvenated and beautiful. Strong colour palettes have been highlighted throughout the spring/summer collections and four dominant shades are the starlets of the season. Colours are vibrant and wearable. Whether you want to be confident in red, playful in cobalt, or seductive in pink, you can now wear these colours head-to-toe or toned down with soft patterns and neutral hues. Here is a round-up of the must-have colours to create your spring capsule wardrobe.
This colour suits everyone and most occasions. Wear it paired with shades of cream or taupe, or make a style statement with head to toe blues and darker blue accessories. This floral dress from Boohoo.com will be perfect with tan wedges and matching shoulder strap bag. In the evening, glam it up with metallic heels and chandelier earrings.
Red is a strong and confident colour. Be sure to choose a flattering shade to suit your skin tone and wear it in neutral hues to soften the colour. A red dress is always a great style choice for spring events or casual wear. Pair it with red heels and bare legs and keep the accessories and make-up to a minimum. For your off duty day look wear this number from The Hidden Closet in Tuam with gladiator sandals and crossover bag.
from very pale pinks to the darkest and brightest shades, pink is feminine and teasing. For high impact this season, the strongest pink is paired with black or white. Wear this Ted Baker pink cropped jacket with a lace black top and slim black pants for work meetings.
Yellow is best worn with browns, creams, or light greys. Make a style statement with something yellow, whether it is a dress, trousers, or a top and pair with neutral accessories.
How to do head to – toe colour
Head-to-toe one colour has an enviable slimming effect. Easy to match and wear, you will love the one colour head-to-toe trend. Keep the silhouette simple and opt for a hue that suits you best. I prefer the bright head-to-toe look in spring and summer as it involves less layering, and therefore a more flattering look. Try a pair of cobalt blue slim peg pants with a fitted top tucked in, and complete the look with a matching belt and sandals. Keep jewellery to minimum and in matching hues. For weddings and parties, wear a red knee length dress with red courts and matching bag and red diamanté earrings — a show stopper!
