How to style pops of colour this season

Styling monochrome with spring brights

I’ve always been of them girls who’ve just lived for #AllBlackEverything. But with Spring on its way, it’s about time I put my black jumpers and black skinnies to one side and inject some much needed colour into my wardrobe! Read on to find out my outfit details and how I styled the look…

Spring Brights

Spring brights have become my favourite trend this season so far. This winter feels like its dragging on forever. Like can it please stop snowing in Sheffield already?!! So I felt like I desperately needed to inject some colour into my wardrobe. However, I didn’t want to shy away from my usual style too much, as the colour black has a special space in my heart. So styling monochrome with pops of colour seemed like a good compromise.

Yellow, blue and red are my favourite colours to wear at the moment. And I think in this look, shotting them all together just seemed to work. I also took inspiration from new brand LOTD when styling this look. I’ll be putting together a post on the brand next week, with all my new season favourite items, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Knits for Spring

Knits aren’t just for winter! A cardigan is a good alternative to a coat when spring temperatures kick in. However, try to avoid knits in darker colours! Look for knits in shades of mustard, red and blue to brighten up your look.

Bargain accessories

I don’t like spending a lot of money on accessories. Because I’m always switching up my style, I feel like each outfit needs a bag or a hat to complete the look. I’ve purchased a whole heap bags and accessories from  Primark and Newlook lately. I just try to keep my accessories under £10 to justify buying them so often!

The blue beret is my latest style at just £4 from Primark. I know I’ll probably get bored of the beret in a month or so, so I don’t feel so guilty about spending just £4!
