How to wear this summer’s colours

A rainbow or delicious pastels and vibrant, rich, hues have sprung up in the shops, welcoming the arrival of the summer. They are shades for all of us to our style and moods. Here is how to wear summer’s best colours.

Hello yellow

Yellow is certainly the colour of the season. From lemon to vibrant yellow, the brighter the colour the better. It works particularly well with

white, navy, or khaki. The key is to choose the shade that suits you best; the lighter your complexion the lighter the hue. Tangerine or coral are also coveted hues. For play or for work, these hues look stunning in block combination or in patterns. White and coral are stylish choices for occasion wear. Metallic and tangerine are a cool choice for casual. A simple printed dress in coral tones is an elegant and fun choice for day to evening wear.

Candy crush

Pastels are to be seen everywhere. Slightly richer tones than in previous collections this time around, the colours are paired in intriguing textures of brocade, laces, embellishments, and even soft leather.

Baby pink, lemon, or mint are among the ones to go for. Pastels work better paired with another pastel or with light neutrals such as white, light grey, or taupe and with accents of metallic.

The must have

The coloured separate is a season staple, be it a skirt, tailored pants, city shorts, or outwear. River Island has a pretty lemon A-line textured skirt that would work beautifully with white, navy, or lilac. Pink lover? Oasis has a version of an A-line midi length skirt.

On a similar style note, tailored pants in shades of red, yellow, blue, or in abstract prints will flatter your look. Pair yours with neutral or complimentary hues.

Best neutrals

A chic way to refresh your look this summer is to go for head-to-toe in white. Layer pieces in intriguing textures and modern pieces. Navy is a timeless and functional colour, navy is the neutral favourite, plus it suits most skin complexions at the opposite of black. Classic navy and white for an nautical inspired look, or for night time glamour. Navy, coral, and cream is a more playful and stylish style combo.
