It’s the beginning of a new season and that means it’s the beginning of a new trend. This spring and summer it’s all about colour and lots of it.

We’re talking bright, bold, and neon.

It’s time to take your personal style to a new level and let the colour do the talking.Don’t be afraid to have a little fun and experiment with bold neon colours or even bright pastels. Here are a few suggestions and helpful tips that will get your spring and summer wardrobe blossoming with colour.

The coloured pant has become the must-have statement piece to add to your spring/summer collection. Gone are the days that dark denim ruled your closet. The coloured pant is a great way to add vibrancy and a bit of fun into your wardrobe. Try out bright neon colours such as yellow, magenta and turquoise. Keep in mind, the bolder the better, so try a more daring look and pair a bright top to match the coloured pant. If having all eyes on you isn’t your thing, then try toning down bold colours with a neutral top or use statement jewellery to add accents to your outfit.

Bright and bold colours aren’t the only ones to steal the spotlight this season; pastels and flowery hues are also something to keep an eye out for. If you prefer to be more subtle when it comes to adding colour to an outfit, stick with soft hues such as pink, light blue, or violet.

Pastels can also be tricky colours to wear – because of their light tone it may be hard to wear the colours properly. Try to match a light pastel colour with a brighter tone to add some variety. This season is all about putting an edge to your style, so be creative and pair a pastel with a metallic or a print for a bold look. These shades will have you springing into summer in no time.

What better way to make a colour stand out then to add a print to it? Bold prints and patterns are also making their way to centre stage this season. Prints are a perfect way to draw attention to an outfit or show off your own personal style. The best thing about this trend is that it’s easy to pair with almost any colour and, whether it’s bold or subtle, you can make it work with any print or pattern. The top prints that made the list this season are floral patterns, tribal, colourful camo, and futuristic graphics. Choose a print that best suits your style and create a standout piece that will have everyone turning heads.

If being bold isn’t enough, then putting an electric spin to your wardrobe might be. This season it’s all about reviving the retro days in full metallic. It’s the perfect piece to give your style the edge that it needs. Pair a metallic pant or skirt with a bold or subtle coloured top to complete the look. If you’re in the mood for an ’80s flashback or feel the need to catch the spotlight, a metallic piece will do just that.

The trends for this spring/summer season are all about standing out and creating your own unique style. Versatility is the best thing when it comes to your fashion wardrobe, so be creative and try new things that are out of your comfort zone.
