Summer’s hottest colours

When summertime comes, it isn’t so much about what you wear as what colour you wear. When the winter layers of black woollen leggings and grey parkas have been stripped off, you finally have a chance to let your true colours shine. Read on to make sure you radiate in all the best colours this season has to offer.

Fringed skirtCoral

The very nature of the name inspires a sense of summertime. Coral is the perfect cross between bold orange and soft pink, so you can make it cute or daring, depending on what you prefer. Pair a cropped coral blouse with a simple pair of jeans for a bright, summer look. Or go for a fun, playful feel with Zara’s coral short fringed skirt. It will add a gorgeous retro touch to any look!


Radiate in the colour of the sun by sporting a flowy yellow dress such as this one at Forever 21. Its paleness makes it easy to pair with cardigans and shoes of various colours so you can make the most of your purchase! Or to make a bolder statement, check out their pleated flutter sleeve dress in electric yellow.

Turquoise topTurquoise

Turquoise is a wonderfully glamorous and seductive colour. And because it’s a little bit on the darker side of the shade spectrum, it can easily cross over for fall and winter use with the right pairings and accessories. Get your flirt on in a silky turquoise top from H&M. Pair it with a blazer for professional situations, or leave your shoulders bare for a night out with the girls.


It isn’t every time of year that you can wear a colour as vibrant and dominant as tangerine and get away with it. But you certainly can this summer! If you’re really feeling this bold hue, go all out with a whimsical pleated maxi skirt from Zara. The eye-catching colour will make your ensemble striking, while the soft, flowy fabric adds a flirty touch.

Urban Outfitters dressBaby blue

Although wearing striking oranges and bright pinks are glorious summer trends, sometimes it can be nice to opt for the soft simplicity of pastel tones. And there’s certainly something to be said for wearing a baby blue dress on a perfectly clear summer day. Urban Outfitters’ blue polka dotted dress is classy with a touch of girlish charm, making it perfect for any summer occasion! Or to achieve a similar feel at a lower price point, try out Forever 21’s polka dot collar top. It’s still flirty and feminine, but far more budget-friendly.

There truly is something for everyone this season!
