Summer Trends – Colour

 

 

Colours, colour everywhere!  I love colour no matter how flashy and bright or subtle and muted or mismatched and clashing so I’m super excited that neon, sorbet and mint are making a comeback and what better time then summer when the sun is at is brightest.

Neon

The 80s (and 70s) are back and the decade has manifested itself in many ways.  One of those manifestations is day glo colours.  Whether you want to go full on neon:

Neon is one of the shades of the summer.

Bold Sorbet

When you think of summer blue skie, the beach and ice cream come to mind.  What better way to wear your heart on your shoulder or back then sorbet coloured clothes.
