Rainbow brights

The closest we’ve got to bright colours this winter has been the qualirt street wrappers from the copious amounts of chocolate we scoffed over Christmas. Luckily for those of us hungry for a splash of colour, the gloomy weather is no match for Spring 2011.

Yes, soon you’ll be in need of sunglasses when opening your wardrobe as it’s about to get bigger brighter and more fashionable than ever with the “rainbow bright” trend.

Galliano and Jil Sander’s spring/summer 2011 collections were full of bold statement colours. It’s time to ditch those browns and neutral shades in favour of eye popping blues and yellows.

Colour block blouses and blazers and accessorise with a skinny belt to complete the look. A favourite with stylish celebs such as Katy Perry, bright is definitely the new black.

Big and bright sunglasses will be making a welcomed appearance this summer and they go perfectly with the rainbow bright trend. Try one of the funky new designs paired up with a yellow block coloured dress to really put a dazzle into your outfit.

This trend is guaranteed to brighten up those dull Monday mornings and put a spring back into, well, Spring.

Here are a few cheap items to add that splash of colour…
