Be bold this season in vibrant colours, prints and patterns…
This is a Marie Claire Advertorial.
Prove you’re no shrinking violet and embrace a kaleidoscope of colours for the season ahead…
Designers took us deep into the jungle this season with lush green tones and vibrant prints. Embrace the theme with lifelike designs or abstract print versions like these culottes.

Turn up the heat
No SS16 wardrobe is complete without a surge of poppy red and ever since we spotted full-length dresses at the Marc Jacobs and Hugo Boss ready-to-wear shows, we’ve been on the search for The One. Enter this swishy, pleated number –the ultimate wedding-guest outfit and top of our summer hit list.

Have some fun
Why limit yourself to just one hue? Colour-blocking is a great way to wear bold brights and we love the shift-style of this V-neck summer dress. Simply add nude sandals and layer delicate necklaces and pendants to create a simple and chic day-to-night look.
Agnes Colour Block Dress, £69.50, Oliver Bonas
And accessories? Go for rainbow brights, splatter-effect designs or embellishment with sequins or pom-poms for a little fun. Our current obsession is this bubble print multicoloured block heel – it’s our go-to happy shoe.
The new Limited Edition Fabric Care Collection from Bold & Lenor is the smartest way to ensure the colours of your summer wardrobe stay looking as fresh as their scent. With bottles designed by internationally renowned fashion designer Giles Deacon, there are three pretty fragrances to choose from: Diamond & Lotus Flower, Peony & Cherry Blossom, or Amethyst and Floral Bouquet.
