We’re already into the second month of 2011 (eek!), but is it too early to start looking ahead to those sought after summer months?
Whilst many of us are still reaching for those mediocre monochrome knits, or those lame lacklustre cardi’s (as on trend as they may be), the fashion forward among us have already taken stock of what they can fill their already crammed cupboards with. And this summer is set to be full of styles that even the most tentative trend tickers can follow.
The main look, which you can even start to wear now if you’re feeling colourful, is brights. Yellow, red, orange, blue, green, purple and pink. Name a colour and some lucky long-legged lady has probably strutted her stuff wearing it on a catwalk at one of the Spring/Summer shows.
Derivatives such as cerise, turquoise, jade and rust can all be worn too, as well as pretty pastels. And not just on your clothes but from the top of your head, all the way to your nails.
Although this trend should be easy to work into most outfits, not everyone wants to make royal blue or neon yellow an addition to their wardrobe. So for those who like to take a more neutral stance to their style, the nude trend should be perfect.
No, I obviously dont’t mean going out without any clothes, (where would that leave us Wardrobe girls?), I mean the colour, or should I say tone.
In a stark contrast to the looks above, nudes, or neutrals, are a more classy, yet cool pallette, that can be worked in to most people’s existing colour schemes.
Whether its cerise or cream, blue or beige, green or gold, there’s a colour and a shade for everyone this season, so no complaints.
What colours will you be wearing? Have you already bought one of the key colour trends?
