How To Style Colour-Block Brights

Bright Spark

Sartorial shrinking violets, look away. Dazzling shots of colour are the rainbow details refreshing spring/summer style. Meanwhile, for the less colour-confident, there’s a subtler spin on the trend: select an understated principal tone, garnish with ultra-bright accessories, and pop goes the wardrobe!

Primary School

This season’s return to black finds fashion’s favourite colour reworked as a summer shade. Head-to-toe darkness creates an elegant canvas for pops of primary red, green and yellow, adding a playful zing to your inky attire.

Feeling Fruity

Warm, earth tones bring a fresh, unfussy spin to spring suiting. Add a splash of juicy colour, via vibrant staples and striking accessories, for an eye-catching update on 9-to-5 style.

Racing Colours

Look beyond the familiar primary palette for your spring sportswear wardrobe. Nature-inspired shades – from down-to-earth tan to soft rose and leafy green – will encourage a move outdoors, from gym to garden.

A Scarlet Statement

A single dazzling colour – like the dramatic scarlet of this caped dress – makes a bold but elegant impression. Finesse the look with accessories in cooler tones which complement rather than compete with your showpiece shade.

Fresh Cream

Rethink your spring neutrals: blush, latte or in this case flattering cream create an alternative base note for daytime dressing, leaving room for decorative details as the colourful cherry on top.
