A pop of colour never hurt

A colourful bag is vitamin C for any outfit: It provides an instant lift. Don’t fret over a seemingly risky purchase: The cost per wear of a non-black bag nets out. That’s because shades this vibrant are classics. Most importantly, they go with everything.

Factor in the size (a handy go-anywhere messenger bag) and you’ve got a functional travel buddy at your side.

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.

Frame away

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.
