Spring and summer sees an onslaught of colour and vibrance. Take your cue from nature and follow our tips to rock a colourful look…

Warmer weather brings a variety of bold and bright colours to the forefront. But rocking a colourful look takes some know-how. Follow these top tips to get the look right:

Not all colours are equal

The first step to nailing the look is to choose a selection of colours that enhance your complexion. In addition, you’ll need to select colours that are on trend too. In warmer weather bolder hues like red, yellow, green, pink and turquoise are a winner.

Consider your combinations

It’s no secret that you can offset a bold hue with a neutral hue for a chic look. However, you can also opt for the same colour in different shades for an exotic and exciting look.

For example, you can pair hot pink with pastel pink. In addition, you can also take things to the next level by wearing two contrasting bright colours together such as purple and orange or green and yellow.

Play up the prints

A bold and colourful print is a great way to wear a few colours at once without looking tacky. Floral, tropical, abstract and geometric prints work really well. To complete the look, you can choose one colour from the print and wear other items in that colour for a look that catches the eye.

Amp up the accessories

The right shoes, jewellery and handbag can definitely take your look to new heights. In fact, if  colourful clothing is too bold for your tastes, you can use accessories to give your look some oomph.

In addition, bright accessories allow you to make a fabulous style statement. Your accessories can be in the same colour palette for a coordinated look or you can choose two shades for a chic take on things.
