Colour Splash


Christopher Kane


Jil Sander

Colour has been splashed all over the catwalk this season from Gucci's bold colour clashes, to Jil Sander's simple colour pop. 
Not for the faint-hearted make like Gucci and team bold jewel colours together to create a look worthy of the catwalk. Or for those girls that want to give the trend a knowing nod but not go all out colour, follow in Jil Sander's footsteps and team a bright skirt with a simple white top. 

To help get the look on a budget here's best of the high street:


Go simple block colour in this over-sized top from Acne from Browns- £80

Aftershock- £75 Wear this under a bright blazer or by it's own with skinny jeans or if you feel daring some gorgeous bold coloured shorts or trousers. 

Topshop- £6, the ideal solution is to buy loads of coloured vest tops, available from most high-street shops, wearing a bright vest top will give your wardrobe an exploding pop of colour. 

This orange top will look beautiful either tucked into some harem trousers or shorts or turned out with some jeans and gorgeous stacked heels. Available from River Island at £29.99


Acne from Browns- £170, with the summer months coming dare to bare those legs in some vibrant shorts, wear with a simple white vest, if however you want to be more daring wear with a lush jacket or cardigan. 

Boohoo- £22, the alternative to shorts is jeans, available in many different colours these jeans can be dressed up or down, for something more vibrant look at shops such as Topshop.

Miss Selfridge-£38, these peg leg trousers are in a slightly muted hue to give you more freedom with accessories. Wear with some bright heels or a dazzling bag in any shade you choose.

My favourite trousers featured these are from River Island- £29.99 and they have a Gucci-esque feel to them which I love. Absolutely perfect for a night out with a silk jacket and chunky heels, these trousers will be making an appearance in my wardrobe VERY soon. 


American Apparel- £33, a bright shade like this would only need a simple vest underneath and maybe some shorts or jeans. 

Miss Selfridge- £35, another one of my favourite's the pink softens the look of the dazzling brights. I would wear this with a simple vest top and bright shorts. 

New Look- £29.99, this boxy blazer would look great over the top of an orange top and a similar shaded skirt. Just be Brave. 
Also look out for vibrant cardigans in all colours of the rainbow to inject some dazzling colour to your wardrobe. 


YOOX- £69 the safer alternative to a yellow jacket, wear these shoes with confidence and let the yellow shine into your life and make you smile. 

Miss Selfridge- £45, two trends in one these shoes nod at both colour and the 70's. Wear with a gorgeous dazzling skirt, bright jeans or vibrant shorts. 

Notes on wearing colour:

  • Too shy to wear all out colour, introduce lush accessories via, bags, shoes and jewellery.
  • Black will soften the look. 
  • Bright bottom half? Team with a white vest top to break the colours up. 
  • Have FUN!!
