The Colour Trend Our Writer Won't Be Wearing This Spring

October 30, 2017

Sure, neutrals are an easy, no-brainer clothing choice that leave you feeling pretty “safe” about your outfit as soon as you leave the house, but what about the days when you’re feeling courageous, confident, and daring? Well, that’s a job for the reds, blues, and yellows of the world.

Bright is back in a big way this year. And seeing as the summer heat has really started to kick in, I’m finding myself pushing my black and darker clothing to the side. Not even my staple black denim jeans, nor my favourite sheer black top can sway me from my chosen path of every outfit must include colour, every day. And I’ve noticed it’s also particular shades that are resonating with my style, being the bolder the better. (So even pastel hues are having a hard time catching my attention.)

If you’re also looking to add more vibrancy into your summer wardrobe, I recommend starting small and with a shade that’s guaranteed to suit your skin tone (follow the Who What Wear guide and you’ll succeed every time). Once you’ve found the perfect colour, see it as your go-to next time you’re shopping. And if all else fails, remember, pink suits every skin tone, and according to an expert, it is the most “flattering” hue on the colour wheel. 

Keep scrolling to be inspired by this season’s hottest (and brightest) looks, and to shop the items that will change up your dressing routine.
