It’s time to step away from the typical black and white ensembles. It’s been scientifically proven that wearing colour makes you and those around you happier. But how do you navigate the muddy waters of colourful fashion styles? There’s a fine line between looking like a mishmash of Play Doh and strutting a bold, carefully curated outfit. One fashion style to try is colour blocking. It’s the pairing of solid shades of different colours with one another. To fit the brief, take colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel or colours which either contrast or complement each other. First timers? Stick with primary colours for a fail-safe, fun and fresh fashion style.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a denim jacket worn as a shirt! Superman is quaking in his red knee-high boots. With fashion styles becoming more experimental, it’s no surprise that ways of wearing clothing items becoming are more inventive too. Follow in the footsteps of YouTuber Ashley (aka best dressed), queen of wearing one dress about 50 different ways. To change up your fashion style, wear dresses as tops by wearing a pair of pants on top. Wear an oversized blazer as a dress by cinching in the waist with a belt. The denim jacket look? Button the jacket half way up and wrap the sleeves around your chest into a tight knot.
