Orange was one of the biggest colour trends on the SS13 catwalks, with designers like Helmut Lang, J Mendel and Carolina Herrera sending models out in head-to-toe tangerine, and it’s a colour I’m really loving at the moment! Although I’m not seeing many other signs of summer here in Manchester, the highstreet is full of summery shades, from burnt orange to carrot to apricot and everything in between Below are a few of my favourite picks from Topshop:
Today I wore a fairly simple outfit and layered a cardigan and a big coat over the top for the horrible cold weather! This Wildfox-esque jumper from Romwe is still one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe, and I think it looks great paired with jeans or leggings for a fairly relaxed look. On my feet I wore these super cute ballet pumps from Redfoot, which are also great to take on a night out for when your killer heels start actually killing you, as they fold up and come with a little pouch which is perfect for your handbag!
On the subject of handbags, I recently received this gorgeous bag from Brand Village and it has been my go-to everyday bag since! Unlike the Primark bags I tend to favour, it is great quality as well as being nice looking. This particular bag is the ‘DSUK Snake Print Tote Bag’ in ‘light taupe’, but there are plenty to choose from on the site. I finished off my outfit with some rose gold jewellery – a chunky necklace from H&M and a gorgeous lizard shaped ring from Amorium Jewellery (below).
