Many of us have a tendency to shy away from bold colours when we’re dressing for work or a special event. Sure, black, white and navy are eternally chic, but when you sidestep bright colour you’re missing out on half the fun of fashion. Instead, embrace grown-up colour blocking. Skip the prints and go for striking blocks of complementary colours in slightly muted hues. Think mustard, burnished orange, salmon pink and cornflower blue. Accessorise with a bright, simple clutch bag or shoes and you’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd.
