How to Colour Clash

Clashing unexpected colours is a really on trend look this summer.  I often get asked on personal shopping trips, what colours work together and which ones don’t? So I thought it’d be an interesting blog post to write.The key is to be brave and experiment a little, it’s all about having fun with your look. One of my favourite colour combinations to clash is yellow and blue, any tone so yellow or blue works so so well together. We quite often see them in a print together, such as in this amazing jacket from River Island (Shop here)

How to Clash

A key thing to remember when clashing blue and yellow separates is to opt for solid colour pieces i.e. don’t mix yellow prints with blue prints, then it starts to become too busy! Other colours that look great together (that previously would have been a no no) are; black & navy, red & pink, purple & green, purple & yellow!

Here are 4 looks I’ve styled to give you some inspiration 🙂 Look 1, we have a chic jeans look, ideal for weekend wear, we have a dressy going out look in look number 2 ideal for a date maybe, then look number 3 is a pencil skirt ideal for a night out with the girls and finally look 4 the maxi dress look which would be gorgeous for a festival or your holiers!
