It was a dreary winter, followed by a chilly spring, meaning we’ve spent the majority of the past few months dressing for comfort rather than pleasure. Between the spells of rain and unpredictable drops in temperature, it’s been easier to layer up in cosy knits in preparation for the next big turn in the weather. But the good news is, like a break in the clouds, summer is coming, and it brings with it longer days, sunny skies, and a steadily filling social calendar that you’re going to have to dust off your party shoes for.
In celebration of the new season comes a splash of rainbow tones. As we throw open our wardrobes and begin optimistically planning outfits for fabulous occasions, such as weddings, holidays and parties, we intend to dress to match how we feel—joyously. Trying bold, bright colours can instantly refresh your look (and your mood), so, in place of the monochrome basics that we’ve come to rely on, take this as your sign to put on the brightest outfit you can find.
