Time to surrender those monochromatic shades and pump up the colour chart. Turn the dial to bright and bold summer colours! Let there be a wide spread epidemic of yellow, tangerine, blue or even neons!

For those who were at my last fashion show, do you remember the catwalk?  It was drenched in vibrant hues. Here are some pics of one of my favourite looks.


Being in a black abaya shouldn’t stop you from gravitating towards summer brights. I say love it, embrace it and own it!


Here is some inspiration for you on how to add those gleaming accents to your plain BOB (black on black) abaya.  My favourite way to wear it is to choose a stand out accessory. It could be a handbag or a shoe or some statement jewels.


Runway Shoe Nspiration

  • The shoes add the right amount of pizzazz so make it bold, a bright colour peeping from the bottom of your BOB abaya will just pump up that style dial!
  • Don’t shy away from striped shoes or floral prints; they add that extra summer freshness.
  • A shoe that has an unusual heel, funky straps or cuffs will add that mysterious whimsy to the look.
  • The quality and comfort of your shoes should be priority.


Runway Handbag Nspiration

  • Brights are seasonal colours so don’t pay an arm and a leg to get the IT bag. Go on, shop till you drop! Buy on-trend handbag shapes in colours that flourish! Be it an envelope clutch, a carry all, a structured bag or a satchel.
  • I have seen stunning bags at fantastic prices at Mr Price, Woolworths and Nine West. Shop for less!


Jewels Nspiration

  • The choices for jewellery are limitless. This is what adds that extra touch. It shows that you made an effort and thought about putting your look together.
  • A bright necklace on a black fabric background just stands out!
  • Mixing some gold splashes with the bright colours adds glamour.
  • I have noticed the coloured crystal pieces like the Tom Binns statement pieces really taking centre stage. Watch this trend!  A little bit of bling with fun!
  • For these accessories, you also don’t have to spend a lot. Stores like Sass Diva and Lovisa stock all the newest accessory trends at good prices. Trust me when you enter, it’s like you entered a playground of accessories! (My candy store moment)
  • Don’t forget a bright watch or even a classic white one for some arm candy.

Pops of colour are in full effect this Summer! Are you ready to pump up the colour chart?
