Colour is something some of us try to steer clear of when it comes to clothes, we feel afraid to stand out and opt for 'safe' colours like black and grey or neutrals.

It's funny because growing up in the 80's I wasn't afraid to wear colour, colour was not only in my wardrobe but everywhere! Everything was colourful and fun, and I'm not just talking about Wacaday with Timmy Mallet. The fashion in the 80s represented bold graphic art inspired pieces and vibrant loud colours. I think everyone should embrace their wardrobe with some statement colours this season, I know I definitely need to.

Check out some of my high street choices below.

Yellow: French Connection Glinka high neck jumper £85, H&M wool hat £19.99, Topshop wool midi kilt skirt £95, John Lewis Joules coast waterproof jacket £79.95
Red: Topshop fold over clutch £25, Mac Cosmetics Dangerous £15.50, ASOS pointed heels £28.00, M&S chevron striped shirt £29.50

Pink: Topshop Wool Coat £175, Peter Jensen gathered pink smock dress £230, & Other Stories Nike rosherun flyknit £95
Blue: & Other Stories Cut out gloves £45, ASOS Chunky jumper £28, ASOS Lace up heels £35, Topshop Fluffy pom bag charm £10

Green: Topshop 70s Floral print shirt £42, H&M silk shirt £49.99, Topshop Snake ankle boots £42, Sunglasses Shop Ray-Ban 2180 £108
Orange: Zara Faux leather trousers £25.99, Accessorize faux fur pom beanie £19.00, French Connection Super silk summer cami £34, Butter London Nail varnish £12

I personally think the best item to get to uplift a plain outfit would be a statement bag. Longchamp has a range of bags this season with many bright colours to choose from and my personal favourites are these cross body bags that will definitely make a statement.

Longchamp Artwalk Cuir crossbody bag £310

Longchamp Le Pliage Héritage Tricolore £415
