Colouring in

There’s nothing like a splash of colour to brighten up your wardrobe and your mood, is there? And the good news is that, boldly led by Prada, Louis Vuitton, Christopher Kane et al, colour blocking has made a grand entrance this season. Clashing primary colours, colourful stripes and bright accessories are definitely in and will help you stand out from the crowd.

If you can’t afford designer prices and want an affordable, yet unique look, why not take a browse through some of the vintage and retro pieces in our catalogue for inspiration? In the 80s we all wore dresses, blouses, suits, shoes, bags and belts in very bright reds, blues, greens, pinks and oranges, typically by Jacques Vert and good old M&S. Some of us even embraced neons without a hint of embarrassment!

Here are a few of our current colourful Frockery favourites which will hopefully inspire you to colour in your spring/summer wardrobe.
