If like me, you feel like one of the only people who can't handle the dull, boring winter colours in the shops at the moment, then don't worry, you're not alone. I've mentioned how I can't get into burgundy and dark colours this year many times, so I thought I'd put together a post of a few of my favourite bits for winter to add a bit of colour back into your wardrobe.

My top tips when styling bright colours in winter are:
- Stay clear of Summer prints and stick with subtle patterns
- Wear block colours more than prints, experiment with what you have.
- Play around with textures such as knits and sequins
- Mix the coloured pieces with basics, such as a white shirt or black leather jacket to make it a little more subtle.
- Have fun. Although fashion plays a huge part in my blog and life, I'd rather experiment with my personal style than wear what's "in fashion". Style is more important than fashion, it's personal to you, don't be afraid to leave a trend behind because you don't like it. Equally, pick up the trends you are interested in, don't be afraid of them.

All the above tips are just rules I will be trying to live by this winter, by no means am I saying you should do to, but they may be useful if you need a boost :)


  1. That Motel skirt reminds me of mermaids, so pretty! Love the topshop yellow jumper too :) xx

  2. Oh thank you for this list! I love the first three items, so surprised these all are from H&M? I love the purple sweater let's see if I can find some! I hate the so-called winter colors; I'm really not into brown or green at all. Nice to see there are some more of my kind out there! :)

  3. That looks the skirt!!!!
