.Saturate; Colour Me Confident
Nothing makes a statement quite like a brightly-coloured outfit. No doubt you’ve walked around Piccadilly Circus on a hectic Saturday afternoon and found yourself lost in a sea of black and navy coats. Grey skies are the sad truth hanging overhead during the winter months, but why succumb to its dreary palette?
With spring just around the corner, why not set your sights on some of the trends showcased on the SS18 runway – like colour-blocking? This is not a trend for the faint-hearted, and it is tricky to pull off, so here are some examples straight off the catwalk.
