Black may be a safe colour for every season, but bright colours will pick up your mood and make you stand out in the crowd!
If you’re going to do it, do it properly – colour is HOT, so you have to make sure your selected injection of colour is bold and sexy.
When wearing bold colours this season, you want to stick to just one coloured piece and temper the rest with a more neutral colour – black, white or beige will work. The multi-coloured effect will make you look like you’ve been hit by a paint truck; and that’s a look that’s best left ON the catwalk!
If you absolutely can’t face going out in public in anything that isn’t black, try putting a bit of colour on your feet. Your all-black ensemble will be transformed from street to sexy-cool when teamed with a pair of ruby red heels or trainers.

Hook and eye front shirts are a “must have” this season. Forget hooking the eyes in their proper place…skip a few hooks to give your shirt that “ruffled” look.

Scarves are the ultimate accessory for people who want to inject some colour into their look, but aren’t sure they want to commit to wearing it all day long. Get the ultimate colour boost with a rainbow-striped scarf, or seek out a woolly winter warmer in your favourite colour…
