If brights are what you’re looking for then you’re in for a treat this season- and your bank balance has the high street to thank.
Nearly every store has taken up the trend in some way. But to help you see through the rainbow of fierce poster paints, pastels and neons, I recommend you stick to three key stores: Zara, Topshop and COS. And to help even further, I’ve compiled a list of the key pieces to look out for. All pieces are shown in the gallery to the left….
Coloured denim, or more specifically, coloured jeans are a fun and increasingly popular addition to summer wardrobes. If J Brand (around £200) are out of your price range then look to Levi’s, Monkey Genes, and Wrangler or like me, head to Zara for its £25.99 pairs. The only difficulty you’ll have is picking which colour (I went for orange, but am increasingly tempted by the pink…).
Kurt Geiger is the only place to go for coloured footwear this season thanks to their endless styles and variations on the trend. The purple and green platform heels will look great with a pair of flares for a 70s vibe while the pink stilettos are perfect with a pair of coloured trousers for some Gucci inspired colour-blocking.
The humble blouse is the building block of every spring wardrobe so combine your next purchase with the brights trend. While New Look has sleeveless styles in every shade imaginable, Reiss offers up the best quality.
Aside from colour, skirts are the key pieces of the season so look to Topshop’s Prada inspired stripe pencil skirts and paper bag waist tangerine skirt (team with a blue T-shirt for the ultimate in Jil Sander styling).
And finally, coloured separates can be worn any season and will prove to be the most investment-worthy pieces. Head to Cos for chic, light knitwear and H&M for bright silk infused vests.
