Another huge colour trend for Spring/Summer this year is coral. Designers and high street stores have all been adding lots of this shade to their collections for summer ranging from the subtlest pastel coral to a brighter neon hot pink/coral. Coral is a mix between pink and orange and also one of my all-time-favourite colours!
I can’t think of a better way to bring some zing to your summer time wardrobe then by adding a few pieces drenched in this lovely shade. Seeing coral everywhere makes me so happy! Loving all of this….
The only problem with having my favourite colour splashed all over the shops means that everytime I see something in coral I just get a little crazy and have to buy it. Oh oh I think we have a problem! ;)
Here some coral pieces I picked up in the shops recently!
Bright coral skinny jeans from River Island – only £20 (link)
One piece I really really wanted was a bright coral flowing maxi skirt but I looked everywhere and they were all sold out. Until I just randomly saw it in a ‘last chance to buy’ rack at River Island. It must have been my lucky day because it was the only one left, in my size and on sale for only £15; score!!
I cant wait to wear this with a simple white singlet and some gold sandals ♥
A slightly more pinkish coral top with pleated shoulders from ZARA (link)
Online in the UK they seem to only have this in a light orange and white colour but in store they have it in more shades like this pretty coral one. I love the gold star button details at the back! I will wear this to work with suit or black trousers or on the weekend with dark skinny jeans for a nice day or nighttime outfit!
Maje & Sandro are two of my favourite French stores! Their clothing is a little pricey but their garments are always amazing quality and their collections just stunning. I got this dress in the Selfridges sale back in January and knew I just had to have it for summer. It looks a bit like a loose shift dress on the hanger but once on it’s actually got a really nice tight fit and the low V neckline and high padded shoulders makes it short and sassy. I haven’t had a chance to wear this yet but hopefully I will soon! Actually both Sandro and Maje have some gorgeous coral pieces in their current summer collection so I better avoid those shops for a little while…..
I think coral has a great blend of femininity and edginess that will works in any girl’s wardrobe! Don’t be afraid to play with this trend in big doses…the more vibrant the hue, the better! As intimidating as bright corals may look, it’s actually a very feminine and fresh look. For a bold look, go head-to-toe coral but if you’re not ready to commit on this scale, just tone it down with neutral separates. Nude, caramel, khaki, gold and teal/turquoise go fabulously with coral; although black, white and silver are also a stylish alternative if you prefer a stronger contrast. You can also update neutral outfits you own with vivid coral accessories; a bold orange bag to brighten up your ensemble, or a coral belt or necklace to a little white dress for example makes for a chic and on trend accent!
I definitely ♥ coral. Will you be shining bright in coral this summer? xoxo
