This fortnight I am love, love, loving colour!
The rainbow bright trend is all about wearing the brightest of bright shades, and despite your better judgment, it is a good thing if colours clash.
This trend is high-fashion led as designers such as Christopher Kane and Karen Walker have showcased the look on their spring/summer 09 catwalks.
The emphasis of this trend is quite obviously on colour, especially poster-paint brights, luscious sorbets and eye-popping neon shades.
Pastels and dark colours will not suffice as they do not provide the ultra-bright 'pop' that this look is designed to emulate.
Rainbow bright refers to many mini trends such as block colour, dip dye, tie dye, colour clashing, and multi-hued accessories.
Well you get the gist of the trend - colour! - so now how do you wear such a trend?
It is simpler than you may imagine as wearing the rainbow colour trend does not require you to spend painful hours assembling your ensemble to co-ordinate perfectly.
Instead the rule to follow is to choose a maximum two to three 'pops' of colour to be worn with neutrals such as black, white and cream.
Block colour frocks, which are single coloured and usually poster paint bright, provide the largest impact with minimal effort. If you choose to wear a block colour frock, (your first pop of colour), it can be teamed with black patent heels and an alternative coloured clutch bag (your second pop of colour).
You may choose a dip-dye skirt to be worn with a beige ruffled blouse and neon heels.
Alternatively, good old failsafe denim jeans can be squeezed into the picture and worn with a black camisole, neon blazer and clashing sunnies.
When putting an outfit together do not overdo the colour in both the clothes and accessories. Accessories that do add a great touch are shoes and clutch bags. Sunglasses, belts, nail polish and lipgloss are also worth experimenting with to give your outfit a burst of energy!
