It’s time to say goodbye to those dark and depressing hues of winter and welcome with very wide open arms all the joyful colours of spring! Think polka dots, heritage checks and pastel shades such as lilac, lemon yellow and soft pinks, making their way into the spring/summer trends of 2018. And if you still have that sequinned party number that you thought you’d never see again past the office Christmas party, you’ll be pleased to know that sequins will also be returning in the warmer months. There are also plenty of bold colours to spice up your wardrobe this season; reds are staying put, as are mustard and orange hues.

My personal favourite bold colour of the season is green. It has such a positive meaning – it is the colour of prosperity, sensitivity, calmness, life and growth. It is the perfect spring colour, it reflects the blossoming nature at springtime when we become surrounded by the colour. You can dress yourself in it from head to toe, and you have a great range of styles to choose from. If you like the colour but feel wary of taking that step to wear it, opt for accessories instead. You can brighten up any outfit with some jewellery, shoes, scarf or a handbag.

“Colour has a huge impact on your mood, how you feel and the psychology of colour has been around for generations.”

The secret to wearing a bold colour such as green is to wear the right colour to compliment your unique skin tone. For example, if you have a cooler skin tone, find darker or middle of the range shades that contrast with your skin tone, like bottle green or khaki. If you have a warmer skin tone, then opt for the brighter or slightly lighter shades, such as emerald green.

This applies to men too, who should not be afraid to experiment with colour.
