Step away from the monochrome – SS18 is calling for a full spectrum of colour, with fire-engine reds, canary yellows and primary blues making up the some of the season’s paintbox brights. Want a way in? From made-you-stare bags to statement earrings, here are five ways to wear the rainbow trend now and all summer long.
1. The Day Bags
If you’re not one to do anything by halves (new season trends included), then make statement-making bags your ultimate style sidekick. Bright, bold and big enough for all your stuff, these full-colour cuties are here to nail rainbow styling for work *and* play. Win-win.
2. The Colour-Pop Earrings
Blink and you’ll miss it – colour-pop earrings are the lazy girl’s way to do rainbow brights. Pom-poms, mini tassels and swishy beads come in eye-popping colours for SS18, letting us give our messy low pony days (every day, tbh) a dose of zero-effort cool.
3. The Statement Tassels
Tassel earrings + rainbow shades = more extra than we can handle. From fan-style faves to shoulder-grazing designs, primary-coloured pairs are here to add so-fancy feels to all of our get-ups – we’ll be wearing ours from brunch to big night out.
4. The Bold Accessories
Not ready to go all-out rainbow? No biggie – ease yourself into the trend with the add-on accessories that’ll give your ‘fits a burst of brightness without running the risk of being OTT. Think between-season scarves in rainbow shades, colour-pop jewels and mini yet mega extras, from bold belts to haute headbands.
5. The Cross-Body Bags
Cross-body bags are our go-to accessory for, like, every situation ever so it’s only right that they get a slice of the rainbow action too. Down-sized designs in super-charged shades give #OOTDS an instant boost while colour-block beauts provide something a little less in-your-face for wardrobes on the more subtle side of things.
