Embrace this summer’s sunset- inspired brights. Lisa Haynes reveals how to work hot pinks, oranges, yellows and reds in your wardrobe.


Justaddsunshine!


Let’s face it, we’ve had little in the way of summer weather so far this season, but when the weather’s grim, add some sunshine to your life with your wardrobe. This season’s hottest shades are inspired by a glowing sunset - think reds, oranges, yellows and pinks.


Wear them solo or clash them together to maximise your sunny disposition. A trend made for extroverts, this uplifting palette is ideal for high summer and holiday season. “Forget black, grey and navy and start wearing your own sunshine on your back,” says Veronique Henderson, creative director of Colour Me Beautiful.


So the message this summer is: Ignore the forecast and fashion your own bright outlook... Block brights


Primary, pastel or neon, solid blocks of colours have been dominating the catwalks for seasons but the trend doesn’t translate for all colourings. “Generally, bright colours are best worn by women who can take contrasting colours, like dark hair/bright blue eyes,” advises Henderson.


But in the summer months (and with the help of a self-tan bottle) everyone can be a little more extrovert. “Your skin tone changes if you are tanned (naturally or self-applied) and that’s when brighter colours can be worn more successfully.”
