Colour was very evident this year and clearly the whole colour blocking trend is having an effect on our confidence to ‘live it up’ a bit when it comes to brights too, neons, orange and shots of yellow were everywhere. You might remember Jane predicted orange and bright tones being important new trends waaaay back here and here Possibly my favourite bag on the day was the neon orange Chanel number (above left) that left a trail on your retina long after your eyes had moved on…unforgettable but in a good way. The shot taffeta neon orange skirt (above right) was just the right amount of orange to wear, softened with with a pale grey simple sweater.
All shades of yellow on show, it works well with other colours too, particularly all shades of blue. The short navy coat on the left had lurex thread running through it and my favourite skirt of the day was the deep cobalt blue guipure lace one in the middle worn with the ochre cardi and red shoes – genius mix.
Assorted greens looked lovely with ginger and don’t you love that silk pleated shirt in the middle here? what a great back view.
Tangerine, ginger, caramel, whatever, it’s an orange world….
