So this week I'm going to embrace colour and talk about clashing new colours together to make your wardrobe on trend.
The Spring Summer 17 catwalk shows had so much colour clash going on and its now filtering into the High Street.
When I consult a client with their clothes, ultimately I want to create new, on trend looks with what they have got.
Re-working and mixing colours is a fantastic way to give your clothes new life. Mixing new colours gives them a modern and fresh new look. So today I'm talking Yellow & Pink!
Painting by Delgado (from article by Aimee Farrell at Vogue) its an odd combination to see citrus yellow and pink, particularly pale pink - especially when we think about clothing.
So who can inspire us? Well Pucci for sure. Take a look at this mix up of bright yellow and pale pink he put on the runway for Pucci SS17 ready to wear shows.
So with all of this..how do we find it on the high street? Well only on Saturday I clocked some colour clash in Marks & Spencer! I saw the coat first and then the styling of it was pale pink. It looked fresh, on trend and modern and something we can play around with our wardrobes at home.
Who else to turn to but J Crew who always embrace fantastic colour combinations into their styling. They love the citrus and pink trend. This season it has been featured in one of their party style blogs this season. Gorgeous delicate twule ballerina style skirts with pops of yellow. (Click on the pics to then website)
I love this spaghetti strap midi dress. This could be worn for a summer party with the suede pale pink heels below or ballet pumps in both colours.
These gorgeous ballet pumps
This super skirt/shirt wrap skirt from Zara
So have I convinced you to try the trend?
1. Go through your wardrobe and see if you have any of these colours in your clothes and mix them together?
2. Try putting whatever colour suits your face at the top and go for the second colour on the bottom
3. You could just try it with a handbag, shoes, a scarf or simply with a t-shirt or cardigan.
Its fresh, its on trend and its a different way to wear colour now.
Failing that...you could just work the trend on your daughter... also this season Zara.
Or add some to your home.. !
And looking forward to Autumn/Winter 17 shows Pucci has still embraced the colour clash combination, mixing stronger pinks with yellow and then adding different coloured red and pale yellow high heels - this giving a show stopping colour blocking simplistic masterpiece! So think about this when you are assessing your clothes for Autumn/Winter. Don't get rid of strong pinks or yellows and this may be something you'll be wearing at a party in November!
This gorgeous shot of the yellow cape with dusky pink lining worn with strong colour block sandals will really brighten up a dull autumn day!
