Four ways to style your new-season brights
Want to inject some colour into your summer style? Find out how with Tu’s chic looks here.
Ah, the sounds of summer: the splash of rosé being poured into a wine glass, and the clamour of fashion experts telling us to wear more colour. Still looking for your bright side? We’ve come up with four pieces of Tu clothing that will persuade you to ditch play-it-safe black and re-energise your wardrobe with strong, vivid shades.
The colour-pop approach
Accessories are an entry-level route to wearing brights. Tu’s tangerine bag (or scarlet shoes) neatly sidestep all the what-to-wear-with-what dilemmas while still delivering a brilliant hit of peppy colour.
A mix of pattern
Putting together a gorgeous mash-up of print doesn’t require a master’s degree in colour theory. It turns out you can mix any pattern you want if they share the same scale, and have at least one colour in common – like the blue flowers that appear in both the blouse and the shorts above.
Question: how do you mix off-beat colours together? Answer: With confidence – and neutral accessories. The green and red in the outfit above aren’t obvious bedfellows but they look sensational together thanks to the trousers’ streamlined cut. Tu’s beige sandals and discreet silver jewellery keep the combo from veering into crazy-lady territory.
Will you be sporting one glorious colour from top-to-toe or giving in to a riot of print and pattern this summer?
