A BOX OF CRAYONS
You are going to find us somewhere over the rainbow this season. An influx of dreamy Crayola brights have skipped their way down the yellow brick road and straight into our wardrobe. With summer in full swing there has never been a better time to inject some paintbox colour into your looks; from canary yellow to radical red, there is a whole box of crayons to choose from and there sure is something for everyone.
The first colour of the rainbow definitely isn’t for the faint hearted, but a deliciously deep red is a sure fire way to vamp up any look this summer. This punchy shade is a perfect way to include warm undertones to really feel those summer vibes and its vibrancy is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. Opting for reds in luxe fabrics, like our silky drawstring blouse or vinyl mini skirt, elevate it from a basic primary colour to a sophisticated shade that will have you stopping traffic. Its warm tone also makes it super transitional, meaning you can opt for a red mini dress to see you through the summer and for the colder months, choose a structured red waistcoat that is a dream layered over a turtle neck and crop flare jeans; you can be a lady in red all year round, with complements guaranteed.
Yellow is the colour of positivity, so why wouldn’t you want to wear it head to toe? As soon as you wear this sunny shade you will be channeling all your ‘little miss happy’ energy; because after all, an outfit really can determine your whole mood. If you find canary yellow slightly daunting you can choose a patterned piece that breaks up the bright colour- just like our ‘happiness’ t-shirt, matched with a denim skirt and white trainer. If you prefer just a pop of colour, opting for the shade on an accessory might be more your style; the combination of yellow fringe and straw on the ‘Marri London’ bag makes it the only accessory you need this summer. Alternatively if you’re feeling daring and fancy yellow head to toe, choose sophisticated fabrics and romantic shapes to give the shade an elegant flare. Either way, you’ll be a true ray of sunshine in this hue.
There are so many different ways to wear green, you’ll be the subject of everyones envy this season. This shade signifies nature and new life, so it’s the perfect hue to breath a breathe of fresh air into your summer looks. It works perfectly with metallic finishes, like in our metallic bomber, as its cool undertone is bold without being too garish- an ideal way to add something a little extra to your look. Its refreshing feel also makes it the ultimate colour for super summery silhouettes and patterns such as floral and gingham, ideal for balmy summer days and sunny get-aways.
We are venturing into the deep blue…explore a shade that is definitely going to float your boat. This tone is obviously the colour of denim, but jeans might have you feeling blue? Opt for denim in a cooler shape, like a denim midi skirt with a frayed hem that will get you major style points this season. If you want this colour to take centre stage choose an opulent silky fabric that will fall and create waves of blue as it catches the light, pair with a statement earring and crop top for a look that will leave you feeling particularly coy.
We aren’t just looking through rose tinted glasses, we are officially in love with pink. Bright and bold, this crayola shade is sure to freshen up your summer style and leave you feeling feminine and fierce all at the same time. Play up to the girly attributes of this colour and opt for soft silhouettes, ruffles or delicate embroidery and really get some hearts racing. Alternatively if you want to show more of an edgy side, go for pink on more structured or even masculine shapes, such as a biker jacket or cord trousers to stay effortlessly cool but still show your fun side.
