Whilst the black and white trend is definitely taking over this summer, nothing welcomes in the new season better than a daring blast of colour. Try out a bold blue blazer, a zesty orange top or a fresh green cardi - that pop of colour may be the only accessory you need!
If you have the attitude of a peacock, colour-blocking in head-to-toe vibrancy is still a great look. Clash confidently with orange and tomato or cobalt and green combinations. Or keep it fresh with a citrus palette by mixing tangerine with bright yellow. However, if subtle is more your style, team a bright top with black pants or dark denim. Or go for a printed piece that features splices of spring colours (like a black and white striped top with bands of tangerine).
Alternatively, keep your clothing neutral and wow with statement heels in cobalt... or tangerine... or tomato!

This season everyone is spoilt for choice with blazers available in bold spring colours, as well as geometric & monochromatic prints. For the office, choose a structured blazer in classic black, like one from the new Oliver Black range. Or go for a more relaxed option with a knit blazer from Urban Precinct or Wild Child.
The right blazer can do wonders for your figure, cinching you in at the right places and covering parts you'd rather hide. Plus there's the added benefit of making you feel authoritative the second you put one on! Once you've bought your first blazer, you'll want them in every colour and style.
