A new season means a new kaleidoscope of colour arriving in the shops – and Spring, with it’s bright, cheerful shades, is always my favourite. This year the powers that be at Pantone have predicted a cooler, softer palette of colours, offset with subtle warm shades, so there really should be something for everyone.

We’ve already looked at the gorgeous blue shades, and perfect strawberry ice pink that are on trend for this season, and today I’m talking about a colour that’s pure sunshine – yellow! [Read more…]

The Colour Edit – Spring 2015 – Blue

A new season means a new kaleidascope of colour arriving in the shops – and Spring, with it’s bright, cheerful shades, is always my favourite. This year the powers that be at Pantone have predicted a cooler, softer palette of colours, offset with subtle warm shades, so there really should be something for everyone.

I can’t remember the last season that didn’t have blue as a trend, and Spring 2015 is no exception. This year we see not one, but 3 shades of blue come to the forefront:

  • Aquamarine –  Cool and calming, ethereal, with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer.
  • Scuba Blue – An invigorating turquoise, conveys a sense of carefree playfulness.Even though a cool shade, the vibrancy adds a splash of excitement to the palette. Scuba Blue offers a feeling of escape as it is reminiscent of a tropical ocean. This stirring and energizing shade takes us off to an exotic paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.
  • Classic Blue – Reliable and thoughtful, inspires calm, confidence and harmony.Serving as an anchor to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette, a shade that is strong and reliable. Just as with the sea, because of its waterborne qualities, this Classic Blue is perceived as thoughtful and introspective.

The Colour Edit – Yellow

It’s time to take a look at this season’s colour trends again, and how to wear them. Last time we looked at Red, and this time The Colour Edit looks at one of my favourite colours – Yellow!

Whenever I do Colours consultations, yellow proves a bit controversial. So many people seem to think it looks terrible on them and are a little bit afraid of it! I think it’s such a shame to wipe your wardrobe clear of this happy, sunshine colour, especially in the dark Autumn/Winter seasons. [Read more…]

The Colour Edit – Red

As we enter the new season, I love to look at all of the emerging trends. And, of course, my favourite are the colour-focused ones! Of course, I always say wear whichever colours make you feel/look your most awesome, but there is something to be said for knowing which ones are going to be the most readily available in the shops!

One of the biggest colours for Autumn/Winter 2014/15 is red, and to be honest I can’t think of a better colour to get us through this dark, dreary season! Red is a serious power colour, perfect for giving you a shot of  ‘oomph’ on a Winter’s day – in fact, one of my top tips is to reach for your favourite red lippy to get you through those days where you wake up tired and have no idea how you’re going to get through the next 24 hours!
