Channel the intensity & attitude of pop-culture by introducing bold colours into your summer wear. Dare to bare more skin and be open to over-the-top statement prints to welcome the sunshine.

crank up the colour

This summer, turn heads by cranking up your colour choices during the day and embracing punchy patterns at night. Our advice this month is to step out of your comfort zone and treat yourself to items that catch your eye but you’d never contemplate trying yourself. If your wardrobes full of black, white and greys, it’s time to introduce a bold colour pop. If you’re the girl that always wears flats, step out in a killer pair of heels. If your trusty pair of jeans are looking a little worn, step out in a skirt or printed trousers. Be courageous and watch your confidence build!

One of the most fought after looks this season is culottes, but they’d never suit you right? WRONG! If you’re concerned their mid-length will leave you short on confidence, pick a block colour and match with a simple top for that casual chic look. We adore these coral culottes from Zara with slits up the leg to show off a little more skin for a fun, flirty look. Pair these with an off-the-shoulder top and sandals for the day or with these lace-up the leg heels from Office for the evening.

Do you have a holiday on the horizon? A pleated skirt is your number one travel partner. Lightweight, playful and great in the heat, you can pair it with your bikini for a stroll down to the beach or with a strappy top for a delicious dinner at sunset – a cocktail in hand makes an excellent accompaniment to either look! And, if you are struggling to just pack one, they don’t weigh much in your suitcase...

No summer look is complete without a strong eye or lip colour pop. Head into The Body Shop to swatch their huge range of lip products including their extremely moisturising Colour Crush Shine Lipstick with a sheer wash of colour and sorbet-fresh shine.
