If the cold, grey winter is getting you down, why not brighten up your outlook with a splash of colour in your ensemble?
With this trend there are no rules, the brighter the shade, the better, whether you go top to toe colourful, colour-block or introduce one vibrant shade to an otherwise monochrome outfit. Darker skin tones have always been able to carry off the livelier shades of the colour spectrum so why not embrace this look?
