Experimenting with Summer Colours in Your Wardrobe
Summer is all about easy, laidback fashion that reflects the spirit of the season. The warm weather months are an opportunity to lighten up your wardrobe with playful colours and fun patterns. Unlike the dark shades of winter, summertime is all about pretty pastels, bright pinks, sherbet oranges, sea blues and sultry earth tones. Read on to discover how you can experiment with these shades of summer this season.
Firstly, the most-anticipated colour palette for Summer 2012 is soft, creamy pastels. From minty seafoam green to blushing peach, pastels are going to be all the rage this summer- and you should have no trouble at all incorporating your favourite shade into your wardrobe. For a classic summer look, pay homage to the 1950s and try a pair of soft yellow cigarette jeans paired with a simple sleeveless blouse and a cardigan.
Colour-blocking is also expected to make a splash this summer, with bright two-toned ensembles already making their way from the catwalk to the high street. Pair a simple shift dress in a bright pink or orange with a pair of sexy platform pumps in a bright turquoise or purple. Accessorize your colour-block look with minimal jewellery and a nude makeup palette to really let the colours of your garments speak for themselves.
One of the best ways to add some colour to your summertime wardrobe is to experiment with different shades of nail polish. Master the self-pedicure by changing colours from week to week. Try a cool robin’s egg blue one week and a bright fuchsia the next. Show off your nail-painting skills with a pair of simple flip-flops or some open-toed sandals.
Of course, you can’t talk about summer clothes without mentioning dresses. Popular this season are maxi dresses with bold prints, snug-fitting colour-block body con dresses and simple tunic or wrap dresses that epitomise effortless summer fashion. Don’t be afraid to pick a print that makes a real statement. From vintage-inspired paisley to super feminine floral prints, choose a pattern that will really help you standout from the crowd. A boldly printed maxi dress, or even a patterned jumpsuit, paired with sexy wedge sandals and a wide-brimmed beach hat is the perfect ‘I’m on holiday’ look.
So, from pastels to bold colours to unique patterns, there are many ways that you can add colour to your wardrobe this summer. Colourful clothes are the ideal way to embody the joys of summer and they’re the perfect way to complement that new tan you’ve worked so hard on!
