If you have been into the shops recently or even online it’s not hard to tell that bright and bold colours are really on trend right now. Specifically Zara have been on it with the colour trend using simple blocks colours to add some flare into an outfit. However for some people because this trend is quite out-there it might seem a bit daunting. As someone who is very my pro neutrals I felt this way. However, I put this red dress on above and got so many compliments. Adding a pop of colour to your wardrobe or outfit can lift an outfit. But it doesn’t have to be done in an overwhelming way. I thought I would list a few ways in which you can add some bright colours into your wardrobe without having to buy a whole new wardrobe.

One of the most popular and easiest ways to add a touch of colour to your wardrobe or outfit is a shirt. You can keep it simple underneath or a simple black and white look. But then you can add the shirt over the top for that little *something something* if you know what I am saying. I have been loving this look on Instagram lately and this is especially easy to pull off in the summer when you want a light outer layer. I have been loving wearing shirts over anything as they are also the perfect outer layer for working at home.
If you are only just starting to venture into colour then accessories is a great way to was you in. For example, for an event I went to, I wore a grey jumpsuit, but for the accessories I went for a bold orange handbag, matching shoes and earrings. It is a really well-rounded way to tie an outfit together whilst keeping with the trends. Mules are a go-to current, as well as New Balance trainers. Handbag wise, we have all seen the Jacquemus bags and the array of colours they come in. Something small but might to pack the punch.
Whilst block colour is where it currently is at, prints are a really good option especially as the 70s and 80s style prints are really in right now. You could choose one printed piece and add it with a white top or jeans for example. Something eye catching but its not over the top. Ir you could go for a subtle print for a touch of colour. Prints are best for a more casual outfit, and most prints will be seen season after season.
Finally, if you are feeling brave then you could go all out like me and try a midi dress. The one I am wearing is from Mango and I really surprised myself because as a non-colour wearer typically I didn’t know what I thought of it. But I have realised red is a good colour on me. I know I can’t wear pink – my skin tone is too olive for it and it doesn’t look good on me. However choosing real statement pieces can really serve your mind if you feel bold enough to take the step. In my opinion I say go for it, as you can match it with some understated accessories.
