The joy of dressing up
The magic of slipping on a glamorous dress, fastening a pair of dazzling earrings and sliding into elegant heels – we’ve missed these simple pleasures of dressing up. Now, as we look forward to embracing the outside world once more, it’s time to boost our wardrobes with fun, joyful fashion. And what better way to do that than with the brightest of colour palettes?
In the pink
While the popularity of this sweet shade has waned over the years, the catwalks for the Spring Summer 2021 season were awash with it – especially when clashed with tough black leather. From vivid fuchsia and magenta to subtle pastels such as rose and blush, pink denotes playful optimism and wild abandon, making it the perfect shade to re-enter the world in.
We love: Sandro’s vivid pink dress and pastel-toned blazer, Claudie Pierlot’s brightly printed shirt and this dusty pink chevron crossbody from Michael Kors.
The colour of vast oceans and sunny skies, blue represents freedom and space – two things we’re all in need of right now. Whether you opt for darker shades of inky navy or go paler with dreamy sky blue and slate, the versatility of this hue lends itself to being both dressed up for an evening or styled down for weekend cool.
We love: this ribbon-detailed jumper by Claudie Pierlot, denim jacket from Maje’s First Stone collection and printed shirt by Sandro.

Colours of the sun
Sit back, relax and enjoy the summer with these sun-kissed shades. Tones of zesty orange, lemon yellow and calming peach bring to mind summers abroad, while golden accessories add a much-missed touch of glamour. Finish off your look with a pair of wedges or rope sandals for perfect summer style… just don’t forget the mojito!

Green: it’s the colour of land, life and rebirth. Whether it’s elegant emerald or on-trend sage, this shade is taking over wardrobes everywhere and we can’t get enough of its calming effects. Undergo your own renewal this spring season with a leaf-toned look. Our personal stylists recommend opting for one statement piece over head-to-toe green for the strongest impact.
