Yes, an all-over neutral outfit is always a quick and easy go-to. Yet when you venture outside of your comfort zone and level up your style with some bright pops of colour, it will refresh your wardrobe. Our beloved black & white pieces can still stay. They’ll just be given a little revamp.
It’s where the big trends are—all about vibrancy and bright colours at the moment. There’s even a fancy name for it, “dopamine dressing”. It’s a popular theory in the mainstream, and it’s a way of dressing where the focus is on creating happiness, be it with euphoria-inducing colours or clothes with sentimental value.
Dress your way to more happiness and create an outfit bursting with colour. It can seem tricky, yet that’s what it looks like from the outside. If you’re aware of some simple tricks, your outfits will be harmonious, enthralling, and you’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons.
The inspiration for these tips is from the newest drops from Sportsgirl. They’re brimming with covetable new pieces that are a perfect way to start colour blocking and adding more juicy colours to your style. Like on-trend greens, baby blue and fuchsia.
Partake in joyful colour play by creating daring colour combos that deliver the wow factor. The cliché “opposites attract” applies here in the context of the colour wheel, with colours on opposite ends of the wheel looking amazing when paired together. The perfect pairings are: purple & yellow, red & green and blue & orange. How does this translate in the real world? An easy everyday look could be a vibrant post box red knit matched with a khaki coloured corduroy pant.
Dress Down With Denim
Create a simple colour story by combining bright tones with denim. There are plenty of vibrant knits, cardis and blouses to choose from—we’ve got our eyes on the gorge knit sweaters from Sportsgirl that come in a green or blue ombre. And once paired with a casual jean you’ll be ready to hit the farmer’s market or ladies’ brunch looking super stylish.
Pastels are still having a big moment—baby blue, sorbet yellow and pistachio green. Don’t take them too seriously. They’re as delicious and playful as the candy flavours they look like. Their soft tone effortlessly pairs with any outfit without being too over the top. Sportsgirl’s designed the ultimate block heel mule in baby blue, it’s super trendy, and you’ll be living in them in the warmer months. Or throw on a sky blue coat or puffer over an all-over activewear outfit, and you’ve got yourself a popping look for daily life. Head on over to Sportsgirl before they’re all snapped up.
One Loud Item
One pop of colour is all you need to lift your look and spirits. Choose one statement-making item and style all the rest around it. You could pair a sweet floral-printed maxi skirt with a classic white boxy tee. Sportgirls makes it super easy with a two-tone shirt that’s got colour blocking already built in—just pair it with your favourite denim and welcome to your new staple piece.
Matching sets are all the rage because they’re effortless to style and look like the ultimate in classiness. If you’re unsure how to match different shades and tones together, an outfit in the same colour is fail-safe and elegance guaranteed. Elevate your loungewear look with sweats all in one tone. A sophisticated grey or muted pink would work well.
Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise
Add a burst of colour to your outfit the easy way, with an it bag. Nothing could be hotter or trendier than the super mini handbag—a must-have. It’s a burst of colourful fun and will match any outfit. Lust-worthy ones are in popping fuschia and sky blue. Go glam with a super-luxe quilted shoulder bag featuring a chunky gold chain. Sportsgirl’s stocking the ultimate luscious emerald green number.
