#SNSCOLOUR 2015 Day 5: Citrus Hues

#SNSCOLOUR DAY 5 CITRUS HUES

Welcome to our fifth and final day of #snscolour 2015. I know, already! Today, the focus is on Citrus Hues, those bright, zesty colours that really pack a punch, even in small doses. As we farewell summer for another year though, it's time to say goodbye to the lemon and acid yellow that has featured in many a summer collection. If you love a pop of citrus here and there, as many of us … [Read more...]

#SNSCOLOUR 2015 Day 4: Back to Nature

#SNSCOLOUR Back to Nature - Slider

Natural tones and botanical prints are making a welcome comeback this Autumn. From earthy neutral tones of sand and stone through to all shades of green, it's easy to get in touch with nature without going any where near the garden. And it's a very good thing. Why? Well, neutral block coloured pieces make great wardrobe basics. For example, a cream wrap cardigan (like 8, below) will … [Read more...]

#SNSCOLOUR 2015 Day 3: Jewel Tones

#SNSCOLOUR DAY 3 JEWEL TONES

Darker shades of blue often appear in summer fashion but it's not until Autumn proper that we usually see deep jewel tones in stores.

#SNSCOLOUR 2015 Day 2: Pastel Central

#SNSCOLOUR 2015 DAY 2- PASTEL CENTRAL

If there was such a thing, I'd be the #1 ticket holder at Club Pastel. Or the Mayor of Pastel Central. Or if I was Prince, it would have been a Pastel Beret. You get the drift. I love them. And I hope they love me. Last year, at the beginning of spring, it was refreshing to see the return of pastels - mint greens, soft aqua, blush pink and lemon. I went to town. I … [Read more...]

#SNSCOLOUR 2015 DAY 1: Shades of Grey

#SNSCOLOUR Day 1 Shades of Grey Slider

Just between you, me and the back fence, I reckon there might be a few fashion designers with a quiet penchant for Mr Christian Grey. Why? Well, grey has been trending for a couple of winters now but this Autumn/Winter, it's bigger than ever. Several major fashion stores have a "Grey Story". Layers upon layers of knits, scarves, jackets, jewellery, sports wear and snoods in every shade … [Read more...]

The #SNSCOLOR Challenge 2015

#snscolour slider

At the end of summer, like any season, it's easy to fall in to Ruttsville when it comes to what you wear. While it's easier to get dressed when you know what the day is likely to hold weather wise, sometimes this ease can slip in to a case of same-old-itis - i.e. reaching for the same outfits over and over again. Don't get me wrong - it's great to get plenty of wear out of your favourites, … [Read more...]
