Personally, as a lover of colour, this is one of my favourite Spring/Summer trends, but I'm aware that it fills many with dread. How to avoid looking like a children's TV presenter, or a traffic lights ice lolly?
Well, the first key thing is to stick to plains where possible, pattern will make the look too busy. The second thing is to choose colours that will flatter you rather than overwhelm or drain you. Here are some colour combinations to try for your pallet. There are 3 colour combinations for each, a sensible one, a slightly more daring one, and a bold option if you really want to go for it. Once you've mastered wearing 2 colours in contrast, try adding others from the pallet, but remeber the general rule that the taller you are, the more colour you can take. If you're petite it's best to stick to two or 3 colours to avoid being overwhelmed.
