Spring Brights

It’s spring – so brighten yourself up with some spring brights. There are LOADS of great, colourful items out there. Choose form bright blue, emerald green, sunshine yellow, bold orange or bright red.

Orange is a big trend, as we have discussed on this blog already this year, but the other brights are also big spring news. Spring brights can be worn alone, or combined for bold colour blocking.

Mix your reds with black and grey for a nod to the 1980s. Or add orange, just one step down the spectrum from red, they complement each other vividly! Wear a full outfit of brights for instant visibility!
