Bristol Fashion Week SS17 trend report: Colour

Bright lights

Bright block colours are a key trend to look out for this season. Balenciaga sent models down the catwalk wearing clashing brights, and not just a splash of colour, either, but juicy, punchy shades from head to toe. The high street has followed suit and you'll be able to find all of the colours of the rainbow in stores, from bright pink to sunshine yellow, hot coral and orange tones to jewel rich purples and greens. The only way to wear colour this season is to be brave and go all out....dare you invest in the hottest new hues?

Accessorize with brights

Bag, £39, Kin by John Lewis

Wearing a strong colour head to toe is a brave fashion statement, so to trial the trend, why not invest in a block colour bag or bright shoe to ease in to the look? Orange looks fabulous with denim, and also with white, but it would look showstopping with a soft khaki or chambray tone.

Pleats please

Pleated skirt, £24.99, H&M

Midi skirts are a sure fire spring staple - slightly warmer than a mini skirt, and wearable without tights (if you add a pair of ankle boots!) Pink is the shade to be seen in this season, and across the palette, from blush to fuchsia, anything goes. Pair this skirt with a shell pink t shirt for a wearable daytime look, or go catwalk and clash it up with another bright tone such as cobalt or yellow for an evening look to get you noticed.

A ray of sunshine

Knot front top, £29, Warehouse

Alongside pink, the other colour to make an impact on the runway this season was yellow. It can be difficult to wear, but a cool toned, sunshine yellow suits most skintones and provides a splash of sunshine to a pair of boyfriend jeans.

Wrap it up

Skirt, £42, Topshop

Ruffles and frills are a catwalk fashion favourite and the high street has also embraced this trend. Nail two trends in one with this fitted pencil skirt from Topshop - the asymetric frill is flattering and the bold colour provides all the fashion credentials you'll need.
