Add more colour into your wardrobe with this season’s sunshine-inspired shades of vibrant orange, pink and blue

Bright and beautiful

It’s a common style conundrum: how to wear bright colours. Although we love a neutral, summer’s long days and clear skies have us itching to experiment with bolder shades that instantly lift the spirits. Wearing one colour from head to toe is an easy way to test the waters when it comes to adding vivid shades to your wardrobe, like this broderie maxi dress in vibrant orange. The combination of the colour and the pretty broderie anglaise fabric makes it an instant summer winner. Wear with our suede platform sandals in tangerine for a matching look. Orange also looks great when worn with bright pink, so you could also style the dress with these cerise strappy sandals. If you love the broderie anglaise but orange isn’t for you, try this puff sleeve blouse in a blossom shade.

Bags of style

If you’re really struggling with how to wear colour, we’ve got a hack for you. Bright accessories are an easy way to add a pop of colour to your outfit without the look feeling garish or overwhelming. Textured bags are a summer staple, so why not combine two trends in one with this straw camera bag in bubblegum pink. If you prefer something a bit more unstructured, go for this sling cross-body bag in tangerine. Both will look effortlessly stylish paired with a white summer dress or a T-shirt and jeans. If you like to play with colour, contrast with these shorts and matching camisole in lagoon blue. We’re obsessed with the scallop detail and delicate embroidery, which feels fresh and pretty.

Say it with flowers

Tick off all summer’s key colour trends in one with this bright floral summer dress. Made from pure cotton, it combines sunset hues of orange, pink and yellow. A square neckline and cami straps create a modern shape and flattering silhouette. We’ll be wearing it with our studded cerise mules. If you love the print as much as we do, it’s also available in this camisole, which has a subtle ruffle trim for a feminine finish. Style with high-waisted white denim shorts for a casual but on-trend summer look.
