4. Find your own signature style piece.

Something that you always wear — like how Miranda Priestly has her scarf. Yours could be bright belts, a jangly charm bracelet, leopard print accents, statement earrings, or a hat.

8. Shop the sales for bright designer items. / Via

Bolder colours are often overlooked in favour of their neutral cousins, so tend to hit the sale rail at the end of each season. Dress all in black, or neutrally, and use these million-pound-but-I-got-for-a-tenner accessories to make your outfit look expensive.

9. Use colour to highlight your best features. / Via

Small waist? Accentuate it with a bright red belt over a contrasting-coloured outfit. Shapely pins? Wear coloured tights. Ability to walk in sky-scraper heels? Make them day-glo! Or switch it up, and wear all brights with black to highlight.

14. Make breton tops your wardrobe staple.

Striped tops look amazing teamed with bright primary-coloured pencil skirts or blazers. Or be brave and match with leopard print!

15. Plan outfits using the colour wheel.


Match either…

Complementary colours

These are colours on opposite sides of the colours wheel (eg. teal and red).

Analogous colours

These are colours that are along the same three slices of the colour wheel (eg. burnt orange and red).

Primary colours

Primary colours are the root colours: yellow, red, and blue (the ones that you'd mix in a paint palate to get greens, pinks, oranges, etc.). Mixing these three make a bold, '60s-inspired statement.

18. If you're scared of colour, add a bright scarf.

You still get that colour pop, but the fact that it's removable makes it feel a little less terrifying should you lose your nerve.

21. Colour block your outfits.

This means wearing solid blocks of colour. Stick to bright primary colours, for a retro '60s pop art feel. But maybe avoid a red, amber, green – unless you want to look like a traffic light.

Stylish, sleek and on-trend, with the very latest technology, no wonder the Ford Fiesta is the UK’s best-selling car of all time.
