A pop of colour never hurt

Go vibrant or go home
If this isn’t the sartorial version of “I got this!” then we don’t know what is. Here’s proof that great things happen when a classic outerwear silhouette connects with jaw-dropping colour.
Up for any outing and guaranteed to elevate whatever is happening underneath, it’s equally good for a spin with casual stuff, so, bring on the jeans and sneakers.

Mix ’n’ match
The secret to successfully pulling off two colours in one outfit? Contrasting tones and textures. Aim for a little of the former and a lot of the latter.
A sophisticated approach involves mixing and matching shades that hang out on the same side of the colour wheel while pairing nubby textiles with smooth ones. Oh, and a hint of animal print is always the answer.

The magic of colourful jewellery is that it packs a punch without overwhelming your look. Face-framing statement earrings are the accessory du jour, but a fantastic necklace or a set of bracelets looks just as impressive.
Choose an accent that focuses on shape rather than sparkle to deliver a modern look that’s an effortless match to updated basics, like a collared shirt.
