Top Fashion Colour Trends for 2014

January 15, 2014

Fashion trends come and go, but it’s always fun to inject new colour into your wardrobe. This year, bright colours and gorgeous pastels will be on show throughout the seasons, so don’t be afraid to think pink! (and fuchsia, and orange…).  Inspired by the latest celebrity style, we show you how to wear this year’s hottest colour trends.

Fun fuchsia
Fuchsia boasts sass and personality, and looks amazing with a tan (think Blake Lively). A pop of pink brightens up the day like this Portmans Hayley Thin Strap Jumpsuit (above), or let it stand out on a neutral or black and white outfit. Choose a fuchsia scarf or team a top with a pair of boyfriend jeans for the perfect summer get-up.

Placid blue
Not bold royal blue, but a lighter pale hue. Placid blue brings peace and calm to your outfit. Add a bright pop of yellow or chunky silver jewellery to make the colour stand out.

Radiant orchid
Blooming with confidence, it’s the 2014 Pantone colour of the year. Add a touch of this uniquely vibrant purple hue to your wardrobe in the form of a single fashion piece, like a silk top or cropped pants, offset with monochrome pieces. Or try accessories like a bag, heels or belt. If you’re not that brave, this is a great colour for a manicure, all year round.

Add a vibrant touch to your outfit with a gorgeous orange, a favourite of celebrities from Gwyneth to Jessica Alba. A great way to prolong summer, or add some colour during winter. Bright orange is best teamed with neutral tones and looks great with contrasting navy. Don’t feel confident rocking a blast of blood orange? Opt for a softer pastel tone – think marigold or peach.

We may be getting in early, but sand is an ideal colour for spring! Whether it’s a day at the office or a day at the shops, you can never go wrong with this universally-flattering neutral colour (much loved by Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Aniston). Add interest with contrasting accessories.
