Step aside black and grey, we’ve seen a glimpse of sunshine and we’re moving on… Look on the bright side this spring and introduce a rainbow of colours to make one sharp look. Leap out of your comfort zone and embrace the amazing plethora of colours that the rise in temperature brings.

The colourblocking trend is nothing new to the fashion scene and we’ve seen many celebs succeed and fail with such a bold look. However, with this mini master class you’ll be sure to stand out for all the right reasons.

The first way to don this trend is to keep it simple – start with one statement piece that steals the show. Take this fire engine red dress from Zara, simple in style and structure – the colour does all the talking. To add an edge to the look, incorporate a burst of colour clash with brash accessories like this teal wrap-around bracelet from Ansari (main picture) to make both colours pop.

Now let’s make things a little more interesting, shake up your look with a cocktail of block party and another key SS15 trend that adds a little disco diva! This season we’re throwing it back to the 70s – an easy way to be bold. Channel the era’s mix of striking colours and prints but bring it bang up to date using simple silhouettes. We love the striking print on Zara’s a-line skirt teamed with this French Connection canary yellow top that’s sure to put you centre stage on any dance floor.
