Just because the sun isn't shining outside, doesn't mean you can't brighten up your wardrobe. Hot colour is a big trend for spring/summer 2015, but those in the know are already easing key bright pieces into their wardrobe, and layering them for a stylish look with extra warmth.
If you've been stuck in a rut of black and grey for the past couple of months, this is the update you need: so easy to introduce into your current wardrobe, whether you want to go all-out bright or just add a small pop of colour for an effective new season update.
A great place to start is with an update on your work look, and this Mary Portas The Mia Statement Suit
is a fabulous option, thanks to the classic shape in a flattering fit. Simply altering the colour from your usual black can add an instant spring to your step when trying this tricky trend. Too much in one go? Buy either the trousers or the blazer alone, and style however you see fit: either with more brights (we think a simple orange t-shirt would be the perfect pairing for the trousers) or with a simple neutral top or blouse.
Still feeling like your skin is too pasty to pull of brights after the long winter? Try one of these fake tans
to look spring-ready in an instant. Or stick to colours that suit your skintone perfectly - we've added advice about the best option for you in to our picks, so you can be sure you're choosing pieces you'll look great in.
From flattering skirts, to electric blue basics and scarlet red coats - a pop of bright colour is a quick and easy way to lift your winter wardrobe into spring, without going straight in to the new season trends too early.
